Automated lecture recording (available for WiSe 22/23)

The automated lecture recording records all selected dates of your event and makes them available on ILIAS.

From September 2022, the automated lecture recording can be activated directly when creating the event in CAS Campus. Alternatively, this can be done at any time afterwards via the OpenCast Recording Administration (OC-AV). The service will be made available via the KIT library.

Procedure for use

  1. Activating the recording once via the link in CAS (for all or for individual appointments).
  2. Adding the recording series once to the associated ILIAS course.
  3. Release performed recordings in the ILIAS course - this can be done once as a lump sum or per individual recording.

Detailed instructions can be found in the OpenCast Recording Administration (OC-AV) (link will follow until WS 22/23).


How else can the recording be used?

You can also use the recording independently of your ILIAS course. Via OC-AV you can download the video, cut it or generate an embed code for other courses and KIT-internal websites. In addition, sharing to KITopen is available.

More details: reuse of own recordings; OC-AV link (from October 2022).

What is recorded?

In all equipped lecture halls the beamer and microphone signal is recorded. In some lecture halls it is also possible to add a permanently installed camera or to record a second beamer signal (e.g. for the visualizer). The respective options in the lecture hall are shown individually in the OC-AV during activation.

How are recordings provided and published?

It is your decision whether and how the recordings are shared. You can make the recording series available exclusively to your own students in the ILIAS course or open it up further step by step up to publication as OER. The settings for this are managed in OC-AV (link will follow at the end of September).

Which licenses have to be considered for materials?
An overview of the various conditions for the use of third-party materials in teaching or publication is presented here. The KIT Library offers detailed individual advice on this (link will follow at the end of September).
What has to be considered in case of substitution of the event?

This case is your own responsibility. You can either deactivate the automated recording for individual appointments or continue with the consent of the substitution obtained in advance.

Who all has access to the management of the recording videos?

Each series always has exactly one owner. This owner can unlock several additional editors to the series in OC-AV. You can find more information here:OC-AV link will follow at the end of September.

What should be considered regarding copyright?

The use of third party materials in teaching is subject to legal frameworks. In brief, the rules of good scientific practice apply to any use of copyrighted works, to clearly indicate both the source and the author(s). Tips and hints can be found here.

If a recording is to be published in addition, please consult the library. (LINK)

How can I tell if the automated recording is available in a lecture hall?

The respective equipment features and the associated recording options are displayed in the OC-AV as appropriate for the individual event.

What to do if automated recording is not available?

In rooms where automated lecture recording is not set up or there is a malfunction, self-recording is supported.

Are students also allowed to be recorded?

It is not allowed to record students (in image or sound) for privacy reasons. The automated recording is designed in such a way that students in the auditorium are not recorded. In the case of self-recording, it is the student's own responsibility to ensure that this is the case. Practical implementation instructions for this can be found on the self-recording page.

What does OC-AV mean?

Via the OpenCast recording management (short: OC-AV) the recordings in the lecture hall can not only be planned, but also managed and assigned to other series. In addition, subsequent use (assignment of an embed link for Ilias or H5P as well as use in KITopen) can be defined and other user:s can be given the rights to manage the media.

More information can be found in the section "Reuse and Publishing".

What does OpenCast mean?

In ILIAS courses, so-called Opencast objects are available to teachers for the provision of lecture recordings and AV media.

For this purpose, the KIT Library operates an Opencast system in which the media are processed and stored. All media of an Opencast object in ILIAS are mapped in a series in OpenCast. The OpenCast recording management serves as a simplified frontend for the administration of these series and media by the respective instructors. In the OpenCast object in ILIAS, instructors can determine for themselves whether course participants are granted the rights to only view content from the series, to download it, or even to upload their own content to a linked series.
