Recording a lecture in University venues

The University uses a program called Echo360 to record lectures. If you are a visiting lecturer at the University, ask the staff member who has organised your visit to arrange lecture recording for you.

Where a visiting lecturer presents as part of a series that is pre-booked for recording, your lapel microphone and screen will be automatically recorded.

If recording has not been pre-booked, you can record your lecture or presentation using the Echosystem Personal Capture software on computers in University venues. Once complete, you can copy the recording to a USB stick.
