What is Lecture Capture?
Our Lecture Capture system, Echo360, allows tutors to digitally record lectures (as audio/video, screen captures or over PowerPoint slides) and to make the recordings available for you to view online through Moodle. Please note that not all lectures will be recorded and available online. For more information on which modules are available, please speak to your department directly.

Each of the summaries below links to more information on the comprehensive Echo360 support pages. You can go directly to these using the links in the box on the right.
You can access the recordings in Moodle through the Lecture Capture block which appears on the right-hand side of the Moodle module space.
Click on the lecture capture block to open the Echo360 classroom. This shows you the list of recordings (Classes) that have been made available to you for this module.
Each recording has a name and a date and they are usually listed in chronological order, though your tutor may change the order if necessary.
Recordings that are available for the module have a play button to indicate the status of the recording.
Click on one of the available class recordings to open it in the Echo360 viewer and use the play , rewind and fast-forward buttons at the bottom to control playback.
You can use the free Echo360 mobile app to watch and download recordings to watch offline. This guide is for students.

View Lecture Recordings from your Echo360 App
By default, when you log in to the app you will be shown classes and recordings for the current academic year. You can view classes and recordings from previous academic years.
Downloading and viewing content Offline
The mobile app includes a useful feature that enables you to download recordings to view offline. This is particularly useful if you don’t have access to reliable high-speed internet or will be offline for a period of time.
For additional support, including guidance on active learning tools, view the Echo360 App online support page.
Lecture Capture offers a number of active learning tools to help you engage with the captures which include note-taking, bookmarking and flagging.
Click on the notes tool to take notes whilst the recording is playing.
Notes are automatically linked to the video location or presentation slide to help you review them later. You also have the option to download the notes.
Use the bookmark icon to bookmark a video location or slide. The bookmark will appear in your Study Guide allowing you to return to a specific location and review the materials later.
Use the flag to record that you are confused by what was discussed in the recording or to indicate that you have a question about the presentation to support your tutor in providing clarification later.
If the class has both a video and a presentation, you can select which one you found confusing. Click the flag a second time to mark both items.
Click on the download link which appears at the top of the notes section to save a copy of your notes as a text file.
Echo360 organises your notes, bookmarks, and questions throughout the module into a smart study guide that you can use to review and study for an assessment.
