Opt-out process

Following Academic Board endorsement, since 2016 the University follows an opt-out model for the Lecture Capture service.

Lectures and seminars for all subjects scheduled in the central timetable will be automatically captured and live-streamed if they take place in Lecture Capture enabled venues. For more information regarding this decision see the Lecture Capture practice guidelines document (PDF 174.4 KB).

Staff may request to opt-out of automated recording and/or live-streaming for their subject. Associate Deans (Teaching & Learning) or equivalents in Faculties and Graduate Schools will oversee opt-out requests. The following process applies:

1. Download and complete the Lecture Capture opt-out form

Academic staff applying to opt-out of automatic lecture recordings are required to print and complete the Lecture Capture opt-out form (DOCX 1.1 MB) and submit it for approval to their Faculty or Graduate School’s Associate Dean (Teaching and Learning) or equivalent.

2. Submit the completed opt-out form to the Learning Environments support team

Once approved, the form should be signed and submitted as a service request to the Lecture Capture support team at least 5 business days prior to the scheduled date of the session or series, to allow sufficient time for updating the schedules in the system.
