titleDo I have to Lecturecast my lectures?

At the current time UCL does not have an opt-out policy for Lecturecast. Use of the system is purely opt-in at the moment, so its use is up to the individual/department to decide.

There are plans to move towards opt-out in coming years, but any such change will be agreed by Educational Committee first, with procedures and tools to facilitate this. Ground work is needed before this, specifically to clarify legal and policy aspects, and a Working Group has been set up under the Office of Vice Provost for Education to review and implement required policies to support an opt out Lecturecast solution.

titleCan I Live Steam using Lecturecast?

At the current time the UCL Lecturecast service does not support Live Streaming as part of the service offering. Only lecture capture and associated engagment tools are available as part of the service.

For all live streaming needs please contact in the first instance the Digital Media team via stream@ucl.ac.uk

titleHow can I check if my Lecturecast recording has been scheduled?

There are two way to do this:

1. Check the Lecturecast activity in Moodle

Navigate to the Lecturecast activity in Moodle. Scheduled events should appear as shown below

2. Via the Lecturecast Scheduler

Check that the event appears under the 'Scheduled' tab  in the Lecturecast Scheduler.  The status column in the scheduler Scheduler should also display a 'scheduled' status
