Lecturecast is UCL’s lecture capture system. That goes beyond the simple recording and viewing of lectures, allowing staff to transform their content into an interactive experience and enabling students to engage further with pre-recorded lecture material. Features such as notetaking, live streaming, captioning, bookmarking and posting questions.

Recordings are made available for students to interact with via their Moodle courses. Where Lecturecast recordings are used for face to face lectures, recorded materials can be used for review and revision purposes.
