LectureTube: Video Streams from the Lecture Theatre
It is a simple idea: teaching staff record their lecture in the lecture theatre and then make the video available as additional multimedia learning material in TUWEL. Or, they transmit their lecture to another lecture theatre or directly to the TUWEL learning platform. The advantages are obvious: learning is not dependent on a time or place, the space situation is alleviated and exam preparation is improved.
Our LectureTube Service
To make it possible to record lectures, TU Wien has equipped some lecture theatres with recording technology (Opencast). Recording starts and stops automatically, so there is little effort involved on the part of teaching staff. Live streams must be controlled manually in the lecture theatre, and this is easily accomplished using the integrated touch panels in the lecture theatre. Instructions for the control system are available in the lecture theatre.
LectureTube - the recording includes
- screen content from the presentation laptop
- the audio signal from the lecture theatre’s sound system
- transmission of the camera image in the lecture theatre
- a document camera for taking pictures of real objects, such as items, experiments or hand-written drafts on paper
At the end of the lecture, the recordings are automatically sent to the LectureTube server, where the individual channels can be combined into a multimedia, searchable learning stream and published by the associated TUWEL course. It is possible to make a live stream in parallel with the recording.
