Using lecture capture effectively

We have some useful guides and tips that will help you to use lecture capture effectively as part of your studies while at Cambridge.

Using lecture capture effectively is a skill that will develop throughout your time at University. 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 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?

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

Jan 22, 2020

Several institutions reported to us that messages to their Exchange Online tenancies were being blocked following routine maintenance to the central email switch (PPSW) on Monday 20 January. We believe we've discovered the cause and implemented a workaround that has cleared the backlog and will prevent this from happening again.
