Lecture recording

An overview for teaching staff of the lecture recording facilities available at the University of Derby.


What is Lecture Recording

Lecture Recording (a system made by Panopto) enables you to record your speech, PowerPoint slides, computer screen and any video feeds (like a webcam). The output is an ingenious video which viewers can interact with.

Use and access

Increasingly, students have come to expect access to lectures after the event (Jewitt, 2015).

Most rooms at Derby are now equipped with recording equipment, for example a built in mic and often a ceiling webcam as well (see below for the list of rooms).

Lecture Recording integrates with Course Resources. You record your presentation directly into your module, and students can access it from there.
