Scheduling a lecture recording
All lectures delivered in a London campus lecture theatre (excluding faculty who opt-out) will automatically be recorded using our Lecture Capture system, Mediasite. We call these recordings "classroom recordings".
Classroom recordings are scheduled to automatically start and stop based on the lecture start and end time; the recording automatically uploads to a faculty shared folder, accessible by the Faculty Videos tool in Canvas.
Please be aware the recording schedule does not automatically update with room changes. If the lectern touch panel and lecture theatre recording lights do not indicate recording in progress please contact AV support by phone on 7680.
For virtual and Dubai campus teaching sessions please ensure "import into mediasite" is selected in the Zoom meeting schedule. Zoom Scheduling guide
Editing and publishing a lecture recording
Depending on whether your session is Virtual or Classroom First there are slightly different processes to follow.
Classroom First lectures (London Campus)
Classroom First Lectures record automatically using our Lecture Capture system. They are automatically uploaded to a faculty shared folder, these should be available to edit within 15 minutes of the end of the teaching session.

Publishing a Mediasite recording with Canvas Announcements
Courses with multiple streams within one Canvas course should not use Course Videos. In this case, please publish the recording as a Canvas Announcement.
Dubai Campus and Virtual Lectures
Virtual Lectures are recorded in Zoom Cloud and automatically imported into a faculty private folder. It is necessary to move these recordings from a private faculty folder to the faculty 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.
Please refer to Releasing a Virtual Lecture to Canvas to find out how to do this or view the below video.

The video below demonstrates the upload process in more detail
Students access the lecture recording through the 'Course Videos' tool within the Canvas course. In Courses which have multiple streams, the recording is posted in an announcement.
We do not permit students to download lecture recordings. The download function is disabled on all lecture recordings.
Students can only view lecture recordings for their enrolled courses
A Zoom recording is a recording that has been captured virtually in Zoom and either imported to Mediasite automatically or uploaded manually.
A Mediasite or Classroom recording is captured using a Mediasite recorder built into the lecture theatre. The benefit of a Mediasite recording is the ability to record higher quality with multiple streams of video which makes for a richer playback experience.
Generally, teaching recordings are only shared through Course Videos or Announcements. If you need to share a recording with a specific Faculty, Staff or Student please read the following guide:
Lecture recordings are hosted on Mediasite and viewable on Canvas until after the final assessment. Recordings are then taken offline until the end of the academic year, when Faculty can opt to keep an archived version of their recordings.
Analytics are captured for all published recordings. Reports can be viewed either through MyMediasite or Faculty Videos in Canvas. Please read this guide on how to access recording analytics: Analytics in Mediasite
For the vast majority of recordings shared on Canvas the 'who can view' setting should remain as 'Only Shared Users'.
If, however, you wish to share a recording outside of Canvas by link or embed you will need to change the privacy settings.
'Only Me' This will hide the recording from anyone other than you as the owner. If the recording is located in a shared folder other members of the shared folder will still be able to access the recording through MyMediasite.
'Only Shared Users' The default setting for lecture recordings at LBS. If a recording sits within a shared folder the permissions will be preconfigured to allow your colleagues access to edit and publish the recording.
'My organisation' Use this setting if you wish to share a recording with a wider LBS audience, outside of Canvas. Anyone with LBS credentials and the presentation link will be able to view the recording.
'Everyone' Only use 'Everyone' if you are required to share a video outside of LBS. Anyone with a link will be able to view this recording and only basic analytics will be captured as viewers are treated as anonymous. Lecture recordings should not be shared using this setting.
