Lecture capture

What is Lecture Capture?

As part of your studies the lectures, seminars and/or workshops for some modules may be recorded by the University. You will be able to see a red light on at the front of the lecture podium which indicates when a recording is in progress.

The purpose of the recordings is to support your study at the University in the following ways:

  • To revisit and clarify material presented in the lecture
  • As a revision tool when preparing for an assessment
  • In the event that you are unable to attend a lecture

You can find the lecture capture videos for your module by selecting the Mediasite (Lecture Capture) link in your Minerva module.

Note that lecture capture videos will be only be accessible by students enrolled on the associated modules on Minerva.

The University seeks to respect student and staff rights to be acknowledged as authors and performers.

Otherwise, to the extent allowed under the general law, any individual interests in the recordings are waived, allowing the University to act in effect as a custodian, to maximise educational objectives in the general interest of all.
