This training guide describes the steps for scheduling recordings for non-modular and special events and subsequently managing the
recordings for these events via Lecturecast ALP.

It involves:

  1. Scheduling a Lecturecast recording for a non-modular event
  2. Managing your event recordings

To create a schedule for a modular event, refer to the Create and Edit an Individual Schedule training guide.


 The Lecturecast Scheduler will look slightly different to the screenshots below as it now includes "Cancelled Events" and these have been taken using the admin interface.


Material captured by the Lecturecast service is only intended for UCL students and should be not be shared beyond this
audience. All material captured must be accessed via an authenticated UCL login.


Special events are events that are NOT part of undergraduate or postgraduate taught programs, e.g. an inaugural lectures, conferences, outreach events, public events, CPD, etc. We recommend that if you have a requirement for a special event, you contact Digital Media at video@ucl.ac.uk. This team will help you to identify
the best method for recording your special event.
If you are unable to record your special event we can allow you to use the Lecturecast recording system to schedule/record the event, however support will not be provided if the recording fails. Unfortunately you cannot publish special the recording into a section in ALP at this platform is not suitable for special events and is only used to store teaching events.
