Humanities and Social Sciences

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences became a Q-Review school and moved to an opt-out policy for lecture capture at the beginning of the 2014/15 academic year.

What does it mean to be a Q-Review School?

This means all the lectures taking place in Q-Review enabled rooms are recorded automatically unless a lecturer decides to opt out. A ‘Q-Review contact’ from each school has been identified (see below). A Q-Review tool will also appear on QMplus module/course areas to enable student access to their recordings once they are published.

Opting Out

To opt out of a Q-Review recording, individual lecturers must contact their Q-Review School Contact (see below) with the following information:

  • the module code(s)
  • the presenter’s/lecturer’s name
  • if the request is for an individual session rather than an entire module, they will also need the location, date and time

Q-Review School Contacts

  • School of Business and Management – Salman Uddin
  • School of Economics and Finance – Philippa Costello
  • School of English and Drama (SED) – Matthew Mauger and Richard Coulton
  • School of Geography – Sam Atkinson
  • School of History – Shima Ferose
  • School of Languages Linguistics and Film – Jill Evans
  • School of Law – Sue Sullivan and Sharon Watson
  • School of Politics and International Relations – Marlon Gomes

Once the recordings are scheduled, this schedule (including date, time and location) will be sent to the Q-Review contact in each school. This information is then collated and provided to Q-Review Bookings so that they may apply ‘do not record’ tags to any teaching activities which have been opted out of, so that they are not recorded. If you want your lectures to be released at a later date or want to make your recordings initially unavailable contact your ‘Q-Review contact’ at the beginning of semester so this is set up correctly. If you decide to make this change part-way through the course then you may request this via the IT Helpdesk.

Please note that empty sections for all the SITS taught modules are created within Q-Review at the beginning of the academic year. We also get the Module Convenor information from the SITS, but sometimes this information is not up-to-date. In this case, the person who is attached to the section within Q-Review will receive the notification after a recording is made, but they may not be the actual presenter. We suggest that all departmental administrators should send a most up to date list of their modules and module tutors to before the beginning of the term / academic year.

The recordings for these modules can be accessed via QMplus by a Q-Review link added by the module convenor/s. If you for any reason do not see the link, see the guide: Adding Q-Review lecture recordings to QMplus.  This link will not be removed when opt-out requests are actioned and will need to be deleted by the individual lecturer.
