- *Update* (5th February): the university now has a subscription to Box of Broadcasts (bob) which provides a huge archive of TV/Radio programmes & a recording service allowing you request future recordings. The information below is still correct if you want to obtain a DVD of a recording but for web-based access to recordings bob is the better service.
What? Recordings of live broadcasts from BBC, ITV, Channel 4, E4, 5 Television & S4C
How? Send requests to the library (Peter Williams email@example.com) who will arrange for a DVD to be created for use in the classroom
Some (ERA+) Limitations
- Only the above channels
- Educational use & audience only, ie University Staff & Students
- Extracts are OK but no ‘adapting’, including subtitles
- Full Licence details: http://bit.ly/eraplus (PDF) & Copyright & Video overview
The ERA+ licence allows for online delivery of the recordings. Unfortunately this isn’t yet possible here as the licence requires viewing to be restricted to the UK and the university doesn’t have a solution in place for this. It is hoped that the current SLE Multimedia project will enable this later this year.
This information was shared with SEMS staff at the recent Using Video in Education seminar organised by TED. You can watch a 3-min recording (but, to be honest, you won’t learn much more than is written above!)
A new HEA blog focussed on discussion of feedback practices in STEM subjects includes a thread on audio feedback.
The HEA STEM Feedback blog is an output of the Feedback in Higher Education STEM T&L Summit held in February. It accompanies a short Summary Report (PDF). The discussion includes an active thread on audio feedback, see What Types of feedback are most effective?, a topic we discussed at the last Informatics Learning & Teaching Forum in May.
Audio Feedback in Turnitin
One of the blog comments highlights a new feature in Turnitin Grademark for adding audio feedback when grading student submissions. Audio recordings are limited to 3-minutes which is a shame but it’s an easy way to record and distribute audio feedback that doesn’t involve creating and uploading files. The interface looks straight-forward and Martin King at RHUL has provided some step-by-step instructions. if you are interested in trying this feature please contact us or just have a go!
