Help & Support


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


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.


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