Tips on ensuring a high quality lecture capture recording

Lecture capture recordings within the Faculty are highly used by students. It can be extremely frustrating for students if they access a recording that is faulty or has sections in the recording that are blank. The following tips should help lecturers produce high quality Lecture Capture recordings for their students:

  • Make sure you are aware of the new opt out mode for Deakin Video Lecture Recordings.
  • Prior to your presentation, review Deakin’s Copyright guidelines and requirements.
  • Familiarise yourself with Deakin Video by reading the Frequently Asked Questions – Deakin Video .
  • Make sure the Deakin Video recordings indicating light is turned on, if it’s blinking, it means Deakin Video recordings is paused. If you stop the recordings, it will stop recording until the next lecture session starts.
  • Mute microphone function on the AMX touch panel also mutes the audio on the lecture recording.
  • Always wear the lapel microphone provided.
  • Repeat any questions asked by the audience to ensure both the question and answer is recorded.
  • Make sure the lapel microphone is placed back in the recharger for the next lecture.
  • Review the lecture recording once it has been processed, and where possible edit the recording to remove blank sections, copyrighted or confidential information.  Click here for a guide on how to trim/edit Lecture Capture Recordings.
  • If you find your lecture style is not suited to recording live you can use Deakin Video Desktop Capture to pre-record content for students. More information on using Deakin Video Desktop Capture is available at Deakin Video CloudDeakin Guides.
  • Make sure the link in CloudDeakin has been added for students to access your lecture recordings.
  • Report any technical and equipment issues to BL Learning Innovations CloudDeakin Support.
