IT Help and Support

University Information Services
 

The University ran a pilot of lecture capture from 2016, culminating in a procurement exercise during 2019-20 to provide a full service.  Unfortunately, this had to be paused in the final stages as a result of the pandemic, and is not yet complete.  

To respond to the needs of academics for increased recording of lectures and teaching material, UIS has rolled out the pilot Panopto licence across the institution.  For the 2020-21 academic year, any member of staff with Raven login can use the system in one of three ways: 

  • Scheduled lecture capture: pre-scheduling a recording to take place in a particular room at a set date/time; this option is currently only available in limited spaces, to those departments previously in the pilot
  • Manual lecture capture: starting/stopping a recording manually in the room; this option has been rolled out widely across the estate
  • Personal lecture capture: using software on a user's device (laptop, mobile phone) to create pre-recorded educational videos

More detail on using the system during 20-21 is available on our staff support hub.  

You can view a list of rooms where equipment has been installed. We are continually working to roll out new rooms across the estate, in both central and departmental spaces.

Procurement for a full service will be revisited later in the 20-21 academic year and more details will be posted on this page in due course.
