In addition to providing access to scheduled and ad-hoc lecture recordings, Lecture Capture can be used by staff to upload video content as part of their subject materials for students to stream. Presentations can be enriched with interactive activities such as polls, quizzes and media slides in your uploaded presentations and Q&A discussions can be turned on within live lectures or within the recordings.
While watching lectures and other recordings, students can use the system to anonymously flag ‘points of confusion’ for staff to review, add bookmarks and take study notes to utilise system-generated personal study guides.
In-venue best practice guidelines
To ensure high quality Lecture Capture recordings within a venue:
Repeat any questions asked by the audience to ensure both question and answer are recorded.
Stop the Lecture Capture recording if you finish early, especially if you hold personal discussions at the end of a lecture.
Access and licensing
Access Lecture Capture for timetabled lectures
Both staff and students can access Lecture Capture using a tool link available in their LMS subject. For information about creating this tool link and making the existing Lecture Capture page accessible to students, please see the getting started guide for staff.
Staff do not need to book recordings for centrally timetabled lectures; alterations to the timetable will automatically adjust the recording schedule.
Access Lecture Capture for ad hoc bookings
Staff at the University of Melbourne are welcome to schedule a recording of other teaching activities (e.g. seminars or tutorials), or wider University activities (public seminars, departmental meetings, conferences and guest presentations). Once processed, a recording will be generated and accessible from the requesting staff member's Lecture Capture Library.
Staff can schedule any bookings following the process below:
Access your Lecture Capture recordings with the Echo360 app. Available for free for mobile and tablets on iOS, Android, or Windows. The app is supported for all University of Melbourne staff and students.
