Recruiting tutors for the lecture capture pilot

The Panopto software has been ordered and iSolutions should have it installed on a development server within a few days. I’ve been in contact with tutors across the University who have previously expressed an interest in lecture capture to see if they are still interested in taking part in the pilot. At this stage the objective is to draw up a short list of around 15 rooms that will be enabled in the first phase of the pilot (Semester 1, Oct 2010 – Jan 2011). We have 30 licences for the pilot (a major improvement on the 5 licences we thought we would be able to afford) so there is some additional capacity for the second phase of the pilot (Semester 2, Feb – July 2011).

Our objective is to take things easy and make sure the whole system can cope with demand – for encoding recordings and delivering them to students – before we step up usage another notch. If all goes well, we have enough money for a site licence from Sept 2011. If so, it will be possible to record lectures in any teaching room – and from any office PC as well, if tutors want to.
