Overview In 2010, under the Blue Ribbon Commission (BRC) initiative, the Centralised Command Centre for Lecture Recording (CCCLR) to provide 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 lecture theatres across campus, were connected to a centralised command centre at CITS to monitor and carry out the video lecture recordings 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 and 2, SPMS LT 1 to 5).
How can students benefit from the recorded video lectures?
1. Watch selected parts of the lectures which they did not understand.
2. Revisit complicated concepts to improve their understanding.
3. Fill in gaps in lecture notes if they missed any important points, or if the lecturer referred to something that the student wants to follow up (students may wish to make a note during the lecture to better identify the right point in the recording).
4. Use recordings to answer questions that they have after the lecture (students may wish to note down questions they have during the lecture).
5. Work through activities or example problems that the lecturer included in class using the recording.
6. Watch sections of the recording together with a friend and discuss the key themes.
7. Refer to articles or further reading from the lecturer using the recording rather than having to note it all down during the lecture.
8. Prepare for examinations by going through the video lectures again.
9. View the recorded lectures anywhere, anytime.
10. Access video recorded lectures when they are absent from class due to illness, or too busy/unable to attend the class.
