How to use lecture capture effectively

Lecture capture can help to complement in-person study and support remote teaching practices, during increased coronavirus restrictions.

Using lecture capture effectively is a skill that will develop throughout your time at University. Lecture capture may be used in multiple ways, from providing a socially-distanced large-scale lecture, to a complement to live lectures or seminars which provides more in-depth learning or aids revision.  

Simply watching the video isn't enough; you need to be clear on why you are watching it and what you want to gain from the time spent.  Did you miss the session itself? Is the video part of a 'flipped' classroom where it provides preparatory material you will cover in more depth in a class or supervision? Did you miss a key concept that you want to revisit? Want to top-up or clarify your notes? Do you want to review content with additional reference materials: for example, alongside modelling or graphing software to help you illustrate the concepts?  Each of the examples above provides a different way of using lecture capture to support your study.

The following guides will help you to use lecture capture to best effect in your studies.
