Lecture Recording Service

The University is replacing the audio cassette-based lecture recording service with live and on-demand streaming video and/or audio.

The University is developing and trialling a system to stream video and/or audio of lectures, live and on-demand, with a view to replacing the venerable audio cassette-based lecture recording service currently in place from around 30 Category A teaching spaces. Trials are expected to go ahead throughout the year, with the cassette-based system phased out by the beginning of Semester 1 2004.

One side effect of the trial is an increase in the demand for the existing lecture recording service, which staff now are more aware of and now understand that there are no costs to their School or Division for using the service.
