Distribution and Retention of Lecture Recordings
- The recordings of teaching and learning activities should be distributed securely within the VLE, Brightspace, unless otherwise requested.
- Under no circumstances will the recordings be made available automatically unless explicitly directed by the lecturer in question. The lecturer retains the right to make the recording unavailable at any time.
- By default, recordings will be published to the lecturers Personal Channel on the Media Server. The recording should be made available in the specific module in which the live lecture forms part. This has the benefit of providing students with a visually consistent access point to captured lectures across all their modules.
- To assist students with course revision and examination preparation, lecture recordings should remain accessible on the VLE for the duration of the module.
- Recordings of student group presentations for the purposes of assessment should be retained for 13 months and then destroyed, as per ACOP requirements.
- In the case of recordings made by guest speakers and those outside the University, a link to the recording will be made available for review before the recordings are distributed.
- Presentations and lectures delivered via live-stream are broadcast in real time, however subsequent edits can be made to the recording thereafter.
