Overview: In 2010, under the Blue Ribbon Commission (BRC) initiative, Centralised Command Centre for Lecture Recording (CCCLR) for providing lecture video recording services at NTU was conceived. The main objective of CCCLR was to enhance the quality of lecture recordings and scale up the quantity of lecture sessions. To achieve this, lecture recording operations, once done locally on-site at the 40 LTs across campus, were connected to a centralised command centre at CITS to monitor and carry out the video lecture recording remotely.
The lecture video recording service is now available in all common lecture theatres (LT 1 to LT 29, including LT1A, 2A, 19A, TCL-LT, LKC-LT, South Spine Learning Hub LT120) and selected school-based lecture theatres or seminar rooms (SBS CR1, SCBE LT, SCBE SR 1 & 2, SPMS LT 1 to 5).
1. Watch selected parts of the lectures which they don’t understand
2. Revisit complicated concepts to improve your understanding.
3. Fill in gaps in lecture notes, if you missed any important points or if the lecturer referred to something that you want to follow up (make a note to yourself in the lecture so you can quickly find the right place in the recording).
4. Use recordings to answer questions that you have after the lecture (note questions as they come to you during the lecture).
5. Your lecturer may include activities or example problems in the lecture that you can work through using the recording.
6. Watch sections of the recording together with a friend and discuss the key themes.
7. Your lecturer may refer to articles or further reading and you can use the recording to quickly find the reference rather than having to note it all down during the lecture.
8. Help preparing for exams
9. View the recorded lectures anywhere, anytime
10. Access video recorded lectures when on mc (medical certificate – i.e. Off sick)
11. I am too busy/ unable to attend classes
Alternative uses for Lecture Recording
Aside from recording lectures, teachers have been using lecture recording in innovative ways:
