Teaching Spaces at IOE FAQs

The IT for IOE AV team provide teaching room support for ~80 centrally bookable spaces within the IOE, UCL's Faculty of Education and Society, along with general AV support for the local departments within the IOE.  We can also provide dedicated technical support for conferences and events.  Working closely with the Conference Office the team support over 150 external events per year. 

UCL staff and students can now make use of IOE’s learning and teaching spaces. ISD is working with the faculty to provide IT facilities within the IOE spaces but there are some limitations which you should be aware of.

When is technical support available?

Technical support is available 8am - 8pm Monday to Friday.  Outside of these times, a support ticket is generated and the AV team will look into the problem when they are back on-site.  If you need to extend these supported times, or need weekend support, please email IOE.AVSupport and we can discuss your requirements.

Who should I contact for technical support whilst using IOE teaching spaces?

  1. Schedule the recording of lectures timetabled in CMIS, using the Lecturecast Scheduler
  2. Make recordings available via your Moodle course using the Moodle Connector Block
  3. Edit and manage recordings using Lecturecast Active Learning Platform (ALP)
