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.
The Lecture Capture Service can be used to capture teaching activities in a number of ways. Lecturers can:
- use one of our many Lecture Capture venues to record in-class activities
- record presentations using the Echo360 Personal Capture software that can be installed on a computer for recording in-office or at home
- upload recordings made using other software or equipment, including the Create your Own video studio
- run Active Learning presentations that allow students to be more involved with the lecture content
Echo360 (Active Learning Platform)
The Lecture Capture Service is delivered using software called Echo360 (Active Learning Platform). All of the information about the service and how it works can be found on the following site:
The most important information about the new system for teaching staff is that a link must be manually added to Learning@Griffith before the recordings are accessible to students. See:
If you use Personal Capture, you should update your software to the new version to ensure that it continues to work:
Lectures recorded prior to October 2017
Prior to the 27th October 2017, the Lecture Capture service was offered through an earlier version of the Echo software. Recordings made in this old system are still available, as follows:
- Students are still able to watch recordings by clicking on the link to the EchoCenter that appears in their Learning@Griffith course sites. EchoCenter links are not being added to new course sites (except in exceptional circumstances). Older recordings will eventually be removed as per the Data Retention policy.
- Permanent content, such as mini lectures and other content marked as PERM, will be migrated to the new system. If you have any queries about your content, please contact us.
- Personal Capture is still available, but you must update your software.
- Teaching staff can still use the Staff Tool to view old recordings, download them, and make them available/unavailable to students. However no new recordings can be uploaded to the old system.
