Publishing your recording

Lectures recorded in lecture theatres are published automatically but you have to manually publish the lecture recordings made using Personal Capture (Step 4: Publish your Personal Capture Recordings).  An email (see image below) is sent to the lecturer/presenter once the lectures are  processed.

  • Lectures that are recorded will mostly be made available through QMplus. Look for the Q-Review Block within your QMplus course area, usually  at the bottom left of your course homepage.
  • If your lectures are being recorded but you cannot see them on QMplus then <add the Q-Review Block>.
  • You can also add links to individual recordings to your course area.  This method gives you control over when and where recordings are released to students, or to release audio only or audio and screen only. You can add the recordings manually as a resource in QMplus.
    • Select “URL” from the ‘Add a Resource’ drop-down menu.
    • Give a suitable title for the recording. In the “External URL” field,
    • Paste the appropriate URLs from your email
  • Lecturers/Presenters who receive emails after their lectures are published can also email the link(s) to their students directly.
