Our University uses a number of technologies designed to enhance learning and teaching.

Lecture and Room Capture

Our current lecture capture system is Echo360, and is fitted in a number of rooms across the University, along with one portable device in Chelmsford. Contact IT Services and/or your Learning Technologists to organise a capture well in advance of the event. The videos can be embedded into your Canvas modules.

Screen Capture

Record yourself speaking over PowerPoint, or demonstrating something on your screen. Echo360's Personal Capture and Camtasia are commonly used across the University. Contact IT Services and/or your Learning Technologists to discuss your options. We are also happy to provide staff development in this area to help you get started. Contact Anglia Learning & Teaching.

Video and Audio Streaming

MyPlayer is our University's audio and video streaming server. Students can view videos and audio at home, on smart phones, on computers, etc. Staff can view and upload materials up to two gigabytes in size, along with pictures and Word/Excel/PowerPoint files. Staff can also record videos on their phone/mobile devices and upload directly to MyPlayer.

iTunes U

iTunes U offers a free infrastructure for the dissemination of university podcasts – both audio and video – and is affiliated to the world's largest distributor of music, iTunes. Most universities use iTunes U and we have a channel that has received many views. Contact us if you are interested in disseminating your audio and video materials.

Box of Broadcasts

Box of Broadcasts (BoB) allows all staff and students to access, edit, embed, share millions of TV/radio programmes that are aired on terrestrial/freeview TV, with the added bonus of not having to worry about copyright.
