Lecture Recording Project

Back in May we announced that as part of our successful Challenge Fund bid we’d be running an investigation into low-cost, scaleable lecture recording scenarios.

Before we can begin this project we need to collect some data on lectures in general, so we’ve created a short survey.

The survey asks questions about the type of technology and content you use in lectures, and what your lecturing “style” is. These questions will help to inform the types of technology that we use in the project.

At the end of the survey is a short form which you can use to volunteer to be part of the project, so if you’d like to try out some lecture recording techniques, and have a module running in January, then remember to fill this in. We’d ideally like a good cross section of lecturers with differing levels of computer literacy, so feel free to volunteer even if you’re not comfortable with technology.

Our survey will take no more than five minutes to complete, so please help us out by filling it in now.

  1. Hi – Sounds interesting. Couple of questions…

    1. Is this concentrating on recording just audio or video too?

    2. Also, any thoughts as to where these will be stored and/or served from? I'm thinking that there are options within the university and elsewhere!


  2. Thanks for the comment Michael!

    We plan to capture a combination of different 'things'. Some may be just audio, some will be screen-capture, and some might be full audio/video. We'd hope to deliver the audio files as podcast feeds from within Moodle, and then the screencasts and full videos from the video streaming server within Moodle.

  3. Yes, many 🙂 But probably more suited to an offline conversation or a full blog post than a blog comment.
