Recording feedback as a podcast and uploading it to a VLE
Digital audio recording kits are available to staff for recording the audio from lectures and other activities. Recordings can be made in mp3 format and files can be easily edited using Audacity, then uploaded to Moodle or Equella. Kits are available from Teaching room support.
It is good practice to ensure that anyone featured in the video signs a rights waiver form, ideally when the recording is due to take place or as soon as is practicable after the event.
If your content is going to be made public (outside the University) then you should ensure that everyone (where possible) signs a rights waiver, even if they are members of University staff.
