  11. 11. e-Learning team Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office What is Lecture Capture? A set of technologies that allow recordings of presentations to be performed with minimal effort from the users' perspective and relay those recordings automatically to a given audience. The technology behind it allows the simultanous recording of audio, video, Micrsoft PowerPoint slides and screen capture, and distribute that content automatically to the web, and in turn to a range of devices, mobile or otherwise.

  12. 12. e-Learning team Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office What is Panopto? The Panopto Coursecast platform allows recordings to be made in two ways: 1. Equipment has been installed in lecture theatres to allow recordings to be made automatically. 2. You can download (or have installed) the Panopto Recorder onto your own computer and record your presentation using off the shelf microphones, cameras or webcams connected to the PC.

  15. 15. e-Learning team Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office Why capture your lectures? Lecture capture enhances and extends existing instructional activities, whether in face-to-face, fully online, or blended learning environments. It works especially well in subject areas where students benefit from repeated viewing of content, especially when complex items are being discussed. Lecturers instructors might add group activities during lecture time to supplement the material. [ adapted from 7 things you should know about...
