Attending a Live Streamed Lecture Online

A live streamed lecture allows you to watch a lecture remotely in real time. Live streaming is supported on the most recent versions of Chrome, Edge, Firefox and Safari.

The Echo360 mobile app does not support live streamed lectures. You will need to watch the lecture on a browser.

  • Login to Moodle, and select the link to Lecture Capture from the Module Dashboard.

  • This should open up a new page (if it doesn’t you may need to unblock popups) with a list of the lectures for the module that have been recorded and that are scheduled for recording and/or streaming.

  • If the lecture is currently live, you will see a green Live box as shown in the image below. Clicking on this will open a screen where you are prompted to see the livestream.

  • If the lecture has been scheduled to go live at a later time, you will see a grey Live box as shown in the image below. If you are in the live stream ahead of time, clicking on the link to the lecture opens up a screen with a countdown timer for when the stream starts.

  • Press the Show Live Stream option in the bottom right hand corner, and the livestream will display.

  • If you are experiencing lag, you will be presented with the option to catch up. Press the SKIP button to watch in real time.

 

While on campus, your lectures may be streamed to students who are accessing remotely. When accessing on campus, you can also access the PowerPoint and participate in the online discussion panel, make notes and respond to polling questions (where enabled).

  • Login to Moodle, and select the link to Lecture Capture from the Module Dashboard.

  • This should open up a new page (if it doesn’t you may need to unblock popups) with a list of the lectures for the module that have been recorded and that are scheduled for recording and/or streaming.

  • Scroll to the entry for the lecture that you are attending on campus.

  • Select the presentation icon to open the presentation and follow along on your own device.

  • Use the arrows to move between slides.

  • Your lecturer may hide slides to prevent you from looking forward while the lecturer is going on. You will see a grey ‘Hidden Screen’ if your lecturer has done this.

 

Notes

As you listen to the lecture, you can take notes online using the Notes icon on the top of the toolbar.

If other active learning features have been enabled, your lecturers will communicate with you on how to use these features. You will see a toolbar along the top of the live stream or PowerPoint that you are viewing.

 

Discussion Panel

  • While listening, if you press the discussion icon, the Discussion panel will open on the right hand side.

  • Clicking 'Respond to this question' allows the students and instructor to answer a question previously asked by another student.

  • A text box will open up at the bottom, and this is where you can write your reply.

  • If you would like to anonymise yourself, press the ‘Post Anonymously’ option. Please note: This only hides you from fellow students. Lecturers can see your name, even if you choose this option..

  • When you are finished, click ‘Post'.

  • Click ‘Back’ to go back to the Discussion Panel section.

Questions/Discussion Posts cannot reference the video location.

In class polling/Post a new question

You may be asked to respond to embedded Poll questions within the PowerPoint. You will need to navigate away from the lecturer presentation to the PowerPoint source and ensure you are on the right slide. Select the correct response and press the Submit button.

 

Additionally you might be asked questions via the Discussion panel.

Clicking the double speech bubble opens the discussion panel. You can ask a new question using the bubble icon with a plus symbol. This will open a New question entry box, ready for input.

Confusion Flagging

By pressing the Blue Flag in the top bar, you can discreetly flag slides you don't understand. This allows Lecturers to see the slides which are causing the most confusion or students and can be done during or after the recording.
