We are pleased to announce that our colleagues in Estates Division and Data and Technology Services (formerly IMT) have worked over the Christmas break to improve the lecture recording system. Recording facilities are newly installed in the following rooms:
If you are scheduled to teach in these rooms and would like to have your lectures recorded, please let us know by completing the form in LSE for You
The following rooms now have High Definition video, in addition to audio and display recording facilities:
- NAB – Alumni Theatre
- NAB – Wolfson Theatre
“On air” lights
Lights have been installed to help you determine when a recording is taking place. The lights change colour according to the state of the recording system. When the light is a steady green, no recording is taking place, but the system is operational. When the light is a steady yellow, a recording is due to start in the next five minutes. When the light is a steady red, a recording is in progress.
The light also doubles as a push-button control system. When the light is a steady red (meaning a recording is in progress) you can push down on the light to pause the recording. You may wish to do this when there is a break in your lecture, or when you otherwise feel that continuing to record is not appropriate. When the recording is paused, the light will blink yellow. Push down on the light to resume recording. Wait for the light to return to a steady red before continuing with your teaching.
Please note that the light will only function while the PC in the room is switched on.
Opt in, or opt out?
Lecture recording remains opt in pending the ratification of the policy document by Academic Board. Some lecturers expressed concern about paragraph 2, which governs intellectual property. We will be sending a revised draft to the departments and the UCU branch for comment before final submission to Academic Board.
So the procedure for Lent Term continues to be as outlined in this post:
