Murdoch uses Echo360 for its Lecture Capture System (LCS) to provide streamed and downloadable audio or screen capture from selected teaching venues. It can also be used to upload selected audiovisual (AV) content for your students to view (see the list below for details).
All teaching classes/periods scheduled in rooms with an Echo360 recording capability will be recorded by default. Unit Coordinators have the ability to cancel scheduled recordings via a new “Opt Out” screen that is accessible from the MyTeaching home page.
As your sessions will be recorded when you are lecturing or undertaking tutorial or workshop activities in a venue with Echo360 ALP recording capability, it is very important to remember to ‘pause’ the capture whilst playing certain copyright materials.
Echo360 recording cannot be paused in other teaching venues; if you are going to play commercial AV content, YouTube, etc in a tutorial or workshop you must arrange to 'opt out' of the recording prior to the session.
