Viewing recorded sessions

All academic-related recorded sessions should only be accessed via the links provided in the ELE course(s) on which you are enrolled.

Access to non-academic recordings will be communicated to you directly by the presenter or the relevant administration team. 

Please note:

  1. Recap recordings should only be viewed by using the links provided by one of the above methods. They should not be browsed or viewed directly from within the Panopto mobile app or via the Recap/Panopto video streaming website.

  2. Academics - you should not download podcasts of recordings in Panopto as this can breach the University's copyright.  See the associated FAQ


Panopto-ELE integration

Lecture recordings for module-related ELE courses are automatically linked from ELE to Panopto (the system where Recap recordings are stored).

Other session types, e.g. Seminar, workshop, tutorial, revision etc., are not linked automatically in ELE unless they have had the recording suitability and module code set accordingly in the timetable.

A "Recap Recordings" Section will be created automatically in each ELE course that has Recap recordings scheduled, and links to these recordings will be automatically added to this section within 4 hours of the end of the recorded session. Please do not delete this section; if you do not want it displayed please just hide it from students.

As Tutor on your ELE course(s) you will have editing rights to the Recap section, the same as for your other course section.   If you wish you can hide the links to Recap recordings individually once they appear, if you want your students to only access them later on. 

There is also a Recap Linking Admin block at the right hand side of your ELE course page where you can configure how you want your Recap links to appear (visible or hidden) and also how they are titled.

If you have ELE courses in which the Recap Recordings section and/or the Recap Linking Admin and block are missing, please contact to have these added for you.  

Panopto-ELE integration - New academic year

To be ready for a new academic year and to have links to Recap recordings to be added automatically to the "Recap Recordings" section, you should clear down last year's links.

The easiest way to do this is to create a new section in ELE called "Recap Recordings 20xx-xx" and move all of the previous academic year's links into that section. You may then choose to hide this new section.

Make sure you keep an active section called "Recap Recordings" for the new academic year's Recap links and that it is targeted correctly in the Recap Linking Admin block.
