An e-lecture or web lecture is a recorded lecture that is then made available to students online. Several lecture halls allow you to record your lecture yourself using MyMediaSite. If you want to have someone else come in and record your lecture, please contact LectureNet.

You can offer your students e-lectures, web lectures or video lectures as a useful extra service. They can use them to review entire lectures before the exam, to review difficult concepts, or to catch up on a lecture they were absent for.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) make extensive use of e-lectures.

If you decide to record your lecture, you need to think about any copyright on the audio, images and videos you use in your presentation. For more information about copyright, please consult the UU Copyright Information Office website.

If your recording is to include students on camera, you will need to get permission from them ahead of time. Similarly, if you record a guest teacher’s lecture, they have to grant you permission. Have them sign a release form so you can show that you have their permission.

Twenty-two UU lecture halls have the equipment needed to record your own lecture. You will be the one to start, stop and save your recording. Only your presentation and voice will be recorded. You yourself will not appear on screen.
You can borrow a microphone from AV
