Automatic lecture recording

Lecture recording is the entire process from recording a lecture to making that lecture available online. The lecture recording is published online together with a recording of the screen - such as a PowerPoint presentation - to allow students to watch the full lecture in the Nestor course. It is also possible to live stream a lecture, please consult this page for more information about live streaming.


For who?

Lecture recordings are especially useful for students who are unable to be physically present due to a study abroad, work or any other form of absence. In addition video lectures are generally considered to be very useful for students as a register for revising or if students want to watch a lecture at their own pace.


How to?

Request lecture room

Lecture recordings can be requested by the faculty’s scheduler (contact). The scheduler will schedule the lectures in one of the capable rooms listed below. Once the lecture is scheduled, the recording (and/or livestream) will start and stop automatically.

During the lecture

Depending on the lecture room, the lecturer has to collect a microphone from the reception in the given building, some lecture rooms have built-in microphones (in the ceiling), please check in the table below.

If the teacher has to use a microphone, please check the image below on how to put it on and disable or enable the mute setting. During the pause, please mute the microphone.

Depending on the room, there can be an automatic tracking camera installed (please check the table below). This camera will follow the presenter, if there are multiple presenters, this can be a problem. Sound produced by a computer will also be recorded.

During the lecture all content presented by the projector/display will be recorded! Even when the picture of the projector or display is muted.

After the lecture

Once the lecture has finished, the recording will be uploaded automatically to the server where a transcoding process starts to make the recording available in multiple quality standards. This process happens on First-in-first-out base and can depending on the number of simultaneous recordings take some time.

Instructions on including the recordings in a Nestor course can be found here.
