Lecture recording (aka "Lecture Capture" or "Mediahopper Replay")

UoE has a major 3-year project to equip 400 "core teaching spaces" with cameras so that lectures (and other events?) can be recorded. See http://www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/learning-technology/media-hopper-replay for general information, training, etc. 

In Year 1 (1917-18), 114 teaching spaces will be available.  This includes pretty much all reasonably large lecture rooms. 

  • In JCMB the enabled rooms are: LT A,B and C; 1501, 6201, 6206. 
  • In Central Area, among included rooms are all the lecture spaces in AT, DHT and 50 Georege Square are included. 

See https://www.wiki.ed.ac.uk/display/LRec/Phase+1+%2528Sept+2017%2529+Teaching+Spaces for details. 

Chalkboard recording

Chalkboard recording involves augmenting the system with cameras that can be focussed on individual blackboards.  This is intended to make lecture capture compatible with blackboard-based lecturing.  The system is non-trivial to use and training is recommended.   

See http://www.teachingspaces.ed.ac.uk/chalk/ for more details. 

Current experiments in JCMB 6206 suggest that the "standard" set-up with a sngle camera covering the presentation area does not work well for blackboards.
