Lecture Capture

The Elentra lecture capture tool allows you to automate recordings of selected event types in specific room locations and have the resulting videos automatically posted as resources to the relevant events.

The Elentra lecture capture tool is designed to work with NCast telepresenters. For more technical information about how to setup your NCast tools, the required calendar feeds, etc. please contact Elentra.

To use the lecture capture tools you must provide the appropriate information in various parts of the platform. You need to:

  1. Define the technical resources in rooms stored in System Settings > Locations.

  2. Configure courses to automatically record sessions via Manage Courses (see here for more information; you'll need to scroll down to the lecture capture section).

  3. Ensure faculty have consented to recording their sessions in their user profile.

  4. Optionally manage events as needed to edit recording status (e.g. if faculty can turn recordings on and off).

At the start of each day, a behind the scenes task checks all events that are set to be recorded that day. The system automatically creates a streaming resource that will be available 30 minutes after the end of the recording and posted to the relevant event.

The display of lecture capture resources 30 minutes after the event is the default setting. This can be changed in the database to reflect a different amount of time (setting: capture_min_available_after_event). Speak to a developer if you want to change the setting.

Learners will see resources added to events as shown here.
