Live streaming provides students the flexibility to view the lecture remotely in real-time. Lectures that have live streaming enabled allow students to view the lecture in real-time without being on campus.
These live stream classes are saved as they are being broadcast, meaning students who couldn’t attend/view the lecture live can access the Lecture Capture recording after the live session.
Any Lecture Capture enabled room can have the live streaming option enabled as part of the Lecture Capture scheduling process.
Below are some scenarios where you might want to use Lecture Capture live streaming.
Lecture Capture recordings are automatically scheduled for timetabled "lectures" and record the following sources:
You can request live stream for automated Lecture Capture recordings via Automated Lecture Capture change of details form on IT Self Service Portal.
The option to make the recording available live will be activated as part of the IT scheduling process and students will be able to see, hear and engage with lectures live via the Moodle page.
For the most part, you can carry on teaching as normal. We would recommend having a co-facilitator to facilitate the online student activity during the live session. This is particularly valuable if you are using any of the Echo360 Active Learning Features to engage with students accessing online.
If you are teaching on your own with Lecture Capture live streaming, we'd recommend not using the Active Learning Features. Use Moodle features to help you engage the students.
