Replay Update – Changes to start/end times

Lecture Capture - Replay Service

Replay Timetabled Lecture Captures will now start at 4 minutes past the start time stated on the University Timetable (i.e. xx:04 or xx:34) and finish 2 minutes prior to the end time stated on the University Timetable (i.e. xx:57 or xx:27). This is effective immediately.

We hope this change will:

  • Improve capture reliability for back-to-back recorded sessions.
  • Reduce the need to skip over the start of the session when watching back.
  • Reduce editing out any preparation/file navigation at the start of sessions.
  • Avoid capturing previous over-running lectures.

These times will be updated soon in the weekly email reminders lecturers receive, until then you may see the timetabled slot times instead.
