A round-up of new developments, projects and pilots from the eLearning team.
Pilot: Assessment Tools and Anonymous Marking
Extended Pilot: Learning Analytics
The Schools of Sport and Service Management, Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences and Education are joining in an extension of the Learning Analytics pilot. The Business school are extending to a full school pilot. More information.
New: Photo Register
All studentcentral modules now have access to a class Photo Register. This tool sits alongside the Photo Classlist and provides a route for tutors to register attendance by clicking on the photos of students at module or group level. This may be useful for seminars and workshops in place of paper registers.
A wider, electronic (card scanning) attendance monitoring solution is in development which will provide a standard solution across all teaching spaces.
New: mediastream and medialecture for screen recording and video
In 2018/19, instead of using Relay and the Fuse app for screen recording, you’ll use medialecture.
We do not recommend mobile devices (eg iPads) are used for assessment recording as there is no suitable workflow for uploading the content to mediastream. We do not recommend touchscreens are used as the webcam is fixed and will not display the presenters face as required for assessment. Schools with a requirement for assessment recording should look to resource this through their own technical support and equipment such as camcorders. IS may be able to help with recommendations for workflows, staff training and purchasing. More information about medialecture.
