Scheduling a lecture recording
All lectures delivered in a lecture theatre will automatically be recorded using our Lecture Capture system, Mediasite. These recordings will be scheduled automatically. For virtual sessions you will need to schedule a Zoom Cloud recording and select 'import to mediasite' to take advantage of the improved workflow.
Editing and publishing a lecture recording
Depending on whether your session is Virtual or Hybrid there are slightly different processes to follow. Please read the guides below for guidance on this and watch the guide videos.
Hybrid lectures (London)
For lectures recorded on the Dubai campus please first follow the virtual guide
Hybrid Lectures record automatically using our Lecture Capture system Mediasite. They are automatically uploaded to a Faculty shared folder and should be ready to edit around 30 mins after a lecture has finished.

It is necessary to move these recordings from a Faculty folder to their shared folder to be able to progress to the edit and publish stage. Please note for a Zoom Cloud recording to be imported automatically the meeting scheduler must select 'import to mediasite' when scheduling the session in Zoom.

A Zoom recording is a recording that has been captured virtually in Zoom and been imported to Mediasite.
A Mediasite recording is captured on a physical piece of hardware within a lecture theatre. The benefit of a Mediasite recording is the ability to have multiple streams of video which make the playback experience a lot richer and customisable.
