Use automated lecture recording

Automated lecture recording is suitable when a recording is to be made available with a time delay. Thismeans that primarily the students present at the lecture are used and the lecture of the lecturer is recorded and made available afterwards.

In some lecture halls an automated recording is available (see list below). This records the spoken word of the lecturer and the beamer signal. The recording is automatically made available in ILIAS.

Since an implementation in the area has priority, so that the use of as many events as possible can take place, there are certain restrictions - for example, the blackboard cannot be used sensibly for a recording. Instead, the Visualizer is well suited for documenting results or elaborating on topics.
Similarly, there is no provision for recording interactive elements such as a discussion with students. This would contradict the mandatory requirements of data protection.

You commission this form of recording once and do not have to be active yourself on site in the lecture hall in addition to the actual lecture.

What is recorded?

As a rule, the recording consists of the beamer image and the lecturer's speech. To enable the recording of as many events as possible, there are certain technical restrictions. Instead of the blackboard, the Visualizer is used to develop and secure content. Likewise, a recording of interactive elements such as a discussion with students is not planned. This would contradict the mandatory requirements resulting from the topic of data protection.

The recordings start five minutes before the beginning of the lecture and continue for another ten minutes after the end of the lecture, so that the end is not missed even if the lecture is overrun.

What is the procedure if the recording is to be used?

Contact svenja.geissler∂ by email at least two weeks before the first session. Mention the dates as well as the lecture hall. You will then receive a response.

Systems in test mode - what does this mean?

In some lecture halls the system has not yet been tested for reliability under longer operating conditions. Nevertheless, this recording option should be offered to you here. In these cases you will be informed. In the first sessions you will be advised to record yourself using Zoom as a backup. Normally the automatic recording works and you can delete the self-recording. If the automatic recording did not work, you can simply upload your backup to ILIAS so that no recording is missing.
