Lecture recording

Classroom Capture

School of Medicine uses Echo360 lecture recording systems in several classrooms:

Echo360 can record a presenter’s voice over their presentation slides. Video of the presenter can also be included, but is optional. During playback of a recording, a viewer can quickly skip forward or backward to any point in the presentation by clicking or dragging in the video‚Äôs progress bar.

Most M1 and M2 lectures in MMEC are recorded. Lecture recordings are created so students who have missed a class have the opportunity to review missed material. Many students also use the recordings as study material before tests.

Echo360 recordings are streamed from eCurriculum and cannot be downloaded.

Recorded lectures are meant as supplemental material only and are not meant to replace classroom attendance. Faculty members have the option of not recording lectures and may ask that recordings be removed from eCurriculum at any time.

While most lectures are successfully recorded, there are instances of equipment trouble, lost recordings, tech specialist error, etc. (Suggestion - When a lecture is accidentally not recorded, it is sometimes the decision of the curriculum office to post the previous year’s recording, when possible.)

For more information on lecture recording, or to arrange a recording session, please contact somedtech-l@lists.vcu.edu. Scheduling is dependent on room availability.
