Lecture Capture

The Lecture Capture system records lectures and events in supported venues. Recordings are made available to students as streaming video, via the LMS.

Learning Environments supports the Echo360 Lecture Capture system. The system records audio and visual content from presentations in over 152 theatres and other supported venues across the University. This service is automatically accessible for centrally timetabled lectures and also available for public events and conferences scheduled using Venue Hire.

As of 19 February 2018, the University launched a new version of the Lecture Capture system (Echo 360). The new version provides a range of additional functionality which will help enhance student learning and staff usability. Find out more about the new Lecture Capture experience for 2018.

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.

Note: Staff will not need to book recordings for centrally timetabled lectures, and alterations to the timetable will automatically adjust the recording schedule.

Access Lecture Capture for ad hoc bookings

For ad hoc recordings such as public seminars, departmental meetings, conferences and guest presentations, staff must submit a booking request to the Lecture Capture team. Please note, recordings can only be scheduled in Lecture Capture enabled venues.

Once your booking has been processed, a member of the Lecture Capture team will get back to you with confirmation of the recording schedule. Due to the volume of requests received, please provide 10 business days' notice prior to an event to confirm a booking.
