Lecture capture (Replay)

Replay Lecture Capture allows students to review an audio-visual presentation of what was presented in a lecture or seminar, and provides an archive and ‘view again’ facility for exam preparation and revision. The system is automated (as opposed to manual), so that a department or lecturer can initiate and manage recordings without the need for any AV personnel to be physically present during the lecture. The software captures slides, audio and video and automatically sends the lecture recordings to a server for processing. After an hour or two the recordings are viewable by the students who take the class. Key features and benefits: · Simple to use, no AV personnel required · Recordings automatically uploaded to a student course area · Opportunity to edit and review prior to release · Access controlled in Canvas · Easy scheduling of recordings

The policy at Oxford is opt-in, which means that individual lecturers can elect to make use of the service if they feel it will support student learning and revision. Some departments have found that as more lecturers opt in, they schedule the recording of all lectures in advance to avoid disappointment later, if a particular lecture series was not recorded. The service also helps the University meet disability needs. Refer to the related services section below, for Audio Visual (AV) support and consultancy service.
