Lecture Capture Overview
Lecture Capture technology allows you to record sound and screen content of a presentation and make it available to students as a learning resource on a Learning@Griffith course site. It has been used at Griffith University since 2009, but in 2013 it was upgraded to the Echo360 system to offer a number of enhancements for both staff and students.
Lecture Capture Service can be used to capture teaching activities in a number of ways. Lecturers can:
- use one of 130 Lecture Capture venues to record in-class activities
- record their presentations using the Echo360 Personal Capture software that can be installed on their computer
- upload recordings made using other software or equipment
Lecture Capture Policy
Griffith University introduced the Lecture Capture Policy to better engage students in their learning by increasing their access to learning resources. It requires for all lectures timetabled in Lecture Capture venues to be recorded and made available to students on the relevant course site.
The storage retention for lecture capture recordings is approximately 18 months, as per Learning@Griffith Data Retention Policy.
Automated Lecture Capture Booking Service
Lecture Capture Automated Booking Service was introduced in 2013 to support the policy and relieve staff from the need to book manually all lectures required for recording.
From Summer Semester 2015 the Automated Booking Service is being enabled also for non-lecture course activities, i.e. tutorials, seminars, workshops, etc. where staff indicated the Lecture Capture requirement in the Timetable Data Collection system.
The Lecture Capture requirements for Summer Semesters 2015/16 and Semester 1 2016 are being collected in Timetable Data Collection in July 2015.
