Support Process for Q-Review
BEFORE AND DURING THE LIVE LECTURE RECORDING – Queries go to Q-Review Bookings (firstname.lastname@example.org):
- To schedule or book a new Q-Review recording – these go via Q-Review Bookings and can be done by emailing email@example.com or by completing the online booking form at elearning.qmul.ac.uk/learning-applications/q-review/q-review-booking-form-new (this also goes directly to Q-Review bookings team)
- To make changes to a schedule or booking which has already been scheduled, but not recorded – these go via Q-Review Bookings as well (e.g. Changes to time/date/presenter/room/frequency, or changes to what gets recorded – video/projector, or changes to how the video will be released – in QMplus, email links, RSS feeds, immediately etc.). If you raise your request for a change to a schedule via the ITS Helpdesk, the E-Learning Support team will try to assist and endeavour to contact Q-Review bookings on your behalf, although directly contacting firstname.lastname@example.org may prove quicker.
AFTER THE RECORDING – Queries go to IT Helpdesk and will be routed to correct team
- Problems with Q-Review I.E. no recording took place, audio missing (or for anything else that goes wrong) – these go through IT Helpdesk and will be routed to IT or AV technical team to investigate, ELU will also be made aware.
- Help with Q-Review recording (accessing Q-Review server, editing the recording, making it available/unavailable, downloading, distribution methods etc.) – go through IT Helpdesk to be routed to ELU
- End of year process (archiving, deleting, rollover) – go through IT Helpdesk
This is a guide only. There may be cases where a Q-Review query may need to be routed differently. Should your query not be routed in the way that you feel it should be, please contact email@example.com and send to the attention of Alysa Bramble.
