Why

There is considerable demand from students for lecture capture and the University of Leicester is behind many other universities in not providing a solution. Research in other institutions has shown that providing access to lecture capture

  • is particularly useful for students for whom English is not their first language
  • does not have a significant effect on attendance at lectures
  • enables students to  
    • concentrate more in lectures
    • review sections that they had trouble understanding
    • use the recordings when revising

What

Lecture capture is the process of recording lectures and other teaching materials and making them available digitally. The University is piloted and evaluated two systems:  Echo360 and Panopto. Feedback was obtained from staff and students in order to plan the next steps.

When

The project will ran during semesters 1 and 2 of the 2013/14 academic year, ending in June 2014.
