    Lecture Capture Open Meeting

    Richard Reece

  • Why record lectures?• Recording of lectures can provide a

    useful resource for students to:• Provide a study-aid for review and

    revision• Help accommodate different learning

    styles• Assist students who do not have English

    as their first language• Assist students who have particular

    educational needs

  • Lecture capture limitations• Not all teaching styles are suitable for

    capture• White-boards, chalk-boards, high levels

    of interactivity, etc.• Ethical issues, or the use of sensitive

    material may render the recording of some activities as inappropriate• Requirements for staff to change their

    teaching style for the purpose of recording is not encouraged

  • Lecture capture• Over the last two years UoM has been

    experimenting with lecture capture• Devised a system where recordings of

    activities can be made automatically• Academics teach normally and

    everything else is done for them• As agreed by Senate, from Sept 2013,

    lecture theaters will be capture-enabled and staff should opt-out if they do not want recordings made of T&L sessions

  • Why opt-out?• Lecture capture can have a

    transformative effect on the student experience for some activities• Opt-out greatly increases the numbers of

    recordings made and therefore the scope and reach• Can enable blended and flexible teaching• Support of eLearning strategy• Disability support

  • Use of recordings• Recordings are to augment the lecture

    experience rather than substitute for it• No evidence for reduced lecture

    attendance by students• There is extensive use of the recordings

    during revision periods

  • What is recorded?• No cameras are used in the recording

    process• The feed from the data projector

    provides the only visuals• The audio from theatre microphones• Recordings are timetable driven and

    usually start on the hour and stop 55 minutes later

    associated with them in the timetable are considered for recording• To opt out of some or all of the

    recordings in a lecture series, simply click the link in the email and select the sessions you do not want recorded

  • Scale of the recordings

  • Potential issues• Copyright• No lecture should contain unattributed

    copyrighted materials• The Library has established a copyright advice

    service that can provide information to academics about how to avoid copyright issues• http://subjects.library.manchester.ac.uk/

    copyright/

  • Potential issues• Security of the recordings• Access only for UoM registered students• Policy clearly states that duplication or

    redistribution of lecture capture material by students is prohibited, and that doing so may result in disciplinary action• No digital asset can be completely secure• Nature of recordings - voice and projected

    data - minimises the risk to individuals and the University of potentially embarrassing or appropriate material being released

  • Potential issues• Recordings will be used to assess my

    teaching performance• The policy contains explicit statements that

    recordings will not be used in performance management• Recordings can, and should, be used for self-

    reflective improvement in teaching
