Aims of the project

The aims of the lecture capture pilot were to:

  • Further understand the benefits of lecture capture for the University
  • Evaluate the expectations of the University and students of lecture capture.  These will be used to create a specification for a long term solution.
  • Learn how lecture capture may shape or change learning practices
  • Inform a set of guidelines and policies
  • Understand the resource implications for IT Services

How did the pilot work?

The pilot involved a small group of approximately 10 academics and ran over both semesters.  The Echo360 system was used during semesters 1 and 2, and Panopto was used during semester 2.

During the pilot:

  • Each academic recorded a series of lectures
  • Editing of the recordings were kept to a minimum, for example to remove unnecessary material at the start and end of a lecture
  • The recordings included video, audio and slides
  • Materials were published no more than 5 working days after the lecture
  • Materials were left in place for the duration of the pilot


Evaluation included input from both staff and students.
