© eLearning Support

The e-lectures project is working to install recording equipment in the lectures halls of the University of Münster in order to record lectures and other events. This allows professors to document and post excerpts of their lectures online with additional materials for their students. The instructors can record themselves alongside the beamer images (PowerPoint slides etc.), or choose to simply present the slides together with the audio.

The decision to record a lecture is up to the professor. Lectures may only be recorded if the professor submits a corresponding request in advance. To have an individual lecture or an entire semester of lectures recorded, the professor must submit his/her request to the e-lecture support team. On the desired date(s), the lecture is automatically recorded and then published in a corresponding Learnweb course. Recorded lectures are only available to students who have registered for the respective Learnweb course.

The project exclusively uses the University's own technical infrastructure. The recording and processing of the videos take place on the Opencast platform, hosted on the ZIV servers, and the software processing is managed by the e-lectures support team. All data is contained within the University's own systems. In the lecture halls, so-called "capture agents" and cameras have been installed to process the A/V signals and transmit them to the Opencast platform (for equipped lecture halls, see map). The recordings are then processed further and edited on the platform itself.

Support and contact

The e-lectures support team can assist you with any questions or problems you have with regard to recording lectures. We would be happy to advise you on how to utilise and produce recordings of your lectures. If you wish, we can make a test recording to give you an impression of what your videotaped lecture would look like.

If you wish to have your lecture recorded, please fill out the following "Declaration of consent" form. You can return the form by University mail or email.
