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.

Lecturers will make you aware of these instances and you will also be able to see a red light on at the front of the lecture podium which indicates when a recording is in progress.

The recordings are being conducted in accordance with the University's Policy on Audio or Video Recording for Educational Purposes. Please read the Policy for further background information relating to your rights.

The purpose of the recordings is to support your study at the University. They will be only be accessible by students enrolled on the associated modules on Minerva.

In accordance with the University's Policy on Intellectual Property Rights in general where staff or students make a recording, all rights in that recording (including rights in the sounds made) will belong to the University. 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.

If you have any concerns relating to any recording please contact the individual leading the educational activity, or the module leader. If you wish to opt-out of being recorded or wish to request that your contribution be edited please contact the individual leading the activity or the module leader in advance of the session (for opt-outs) or immediately after the session (for requests for edits). Please note that you may not opt out of recordings which form part of the assessment process on the module.

You may not record the above activities yourself without obtaining the consent of the individual leading the activity, unless you have permission from Disabled Students' Assessment and Support.
