Reflect lecture capture launches

Posted by rmt22 at Sep 09, 2016 09:39 AM |
We are pleased to announce that the University’s new lecture capture service, Reflect, is now available.

Reflect has been developed in response to a major student-led campaign and will offer a substantial improvement to our students’ learning experience.

Recording lectures in this way will allow students to reflect on content covered in tutor-led sessions, recap points they may have missed, and review what they might not have grasped first time around.

This is just one of a number of improvements we are making this year to improve the student learning experience which includes a new student services centre, a MyUoL app, electronic attendance management and a commitment to ‘Make the Most’ of all our students. More details on all of this are available on the student experience website.

Lecture capture is already being used extensively across the sector and this new system helps us to achieve our aims of having a state-of-the-art digital campus and developing innovative learning and teaching.

We will be recording lectures and presentations in 180+ rooms on campus for students to access through Blackboard. In the first phase (September to January), the automatically timetabled recordings will be audio and screen capture only, however you are able to change this to include video and a visualiser.

The recording software (Panopto) is available in all centrally timetabled and Reflect-equipped teaching rooms. You can also choose to use the recorder on your University PC, or install it on your personal device. See the instructions for how to record at your desk.

If you have any questions, please email reflect@le.ac.uk or visit the Reflect website. The Leicester Learning Institute is running regular training sessions, covering how to record, edit and publish your recordings as well as putting the policy into practice and making the most of Reflect in your teaching.
