Capturing Your Lecture Capture Feedback

As part of our work representing your academic interests and improving your educational experience we ran a successful campaign last academic year to increase the use of lecture capture across the University.

Lecture capture has been the hot topic in education at Royal Holloway for a little while now, in our previous survey conducted last year 98% of you said you would benefit from having lecture capture available. The lobbying agenda for lecture capture has come directly from you and has become a key example of students becoming involved and committed to your academic interests.

So what has happened this term?

Following the implementation work that took place over the summer, over 400 teaching sessions were recorded in the first week of term with 55% of all lectures in the autumn timetable scheduled to be recorded. This represents a near six-fold increase when compared to the previous academic year and is a huge win for student voice and academic representation!

What are you doing next?

Whilst we are extremely happy with this progress, we are not there yet. We are now working with the University to look at how we can increase lecture capture provision even further and ensure the processes behind the system are effective in supporting future development.

But first, we want to hear from you. Have you experienced lecture capture for the first time this year? Have you found it beneficial to your studies? Have you noticed any areas for improvement? Fill out our quick survey to give your views. It is really useful to us to see how this has impacted you as students and highlight where we need to work on in future in regards to this topic.

As always, if you have any questions about lecture capture or other educational topics please email me at vpeducation@su.rhu.ac.uk or talk to your academic rep.
