Lecture capture pilot project information

Lecture capture devices

About the pilot

Research into lecture capture shows a beneficial influence on students’ educational experience. As a result of this, an increasing number of universities in the UK and worldwide are currently involved in the deployment of lecture capture software on their campuses. The objective of the lecture capture pilot project at SSU will aim to evaluate the potential of video recorded lectures to support your learning  as we continue to aim to provide the best quality experience, offering the best opportunities to succeed during your studies.

 Benefits of lecture capture

  • You can review your lectures any time and anywhere to reinforce your learning.
  • Recordings are viewable on multiple devices.
  • The lecture capture system allows you to create your own bookmarks and private revision notes.
  • You can work together in groups for revision tasks.
  • Any points that you would like to clarify during your live lecture will be available to you afterwards.
  • You can prepare thoroughly for your subsequent lectures and assignments.

Accessing your lecture recordings

If you tutor is an active participant in the pilot you will see the lecture capture block in the associated unit page as below.

By clicking on the title of a recording, the lecture capture software interface will open. 

Student view of recorded lectures

You can play the recording but you can also move it forward and/or rewind it, either by clicking at different points across the play bar, by clicking on any of the thumbnail images or using the contents links. This will take you to that point in the lecture timeline.

Navigate through the lecture in a number of ways

You can also use the search facility in Panopto to search for a specific word/phrase; if the word/phrase is found in that recording that specific point will play automatically.

Using for revision purposes

The great advantage that lecture capture will give you is the ability to go back over the sessions you had. The lecture system also allows you to add your own bookmarks which will also act as links to the relevant point in the recording. You can use these to refer back to particular areas you would like to clarify.

Bookmarks

The notes area allows you to write comprehensive revision notes to use in support of your learning. These can be useful to refer back to prepare for assessments and exams. These notes are also attached to the specific time in the recording.

Student notes

These revision notes can only be seen by you, you can however work in small groups by creating a "channel". Any notes in a group area will be available to everyone in that group.

This gives you an easy way to work with your colleagues to ensure you get the best out of your studies!

Lecture Capture and students' awareness and rights

You (the student) will be notified when the session is recorded, so that you know that if you ask a question during the recording, your voice may be recorded. 

The recordings of the materials are to be used only for your own revision purposes as a learning aid and they do not aim to replace your attendance in lectures. Tutors are under no obligation to record their lectures; it is their decision to do so. It is possible that participating lecturers may not wish to record all of their lectures or encounter technical issues that prevent the lecture being recorded. 

You can access the lecture recordings via Solent Online Learning for your own purposes but you have no right to distribute any of the recordings or upload them to an online public space.
