We are pleased to announce that a number of ISLA rooms have been signed off across Northampton Square. These include: C302, C309, A214, D104 and FG05. At Bunhill Row, most learning spaces on the 2nd and 3rd floors are now ISLA enabled for hybrid teaching. Further ISLA rooms will be signed off later this term.

Co-Pilots

LEaD have run Co-pilot refresher training recently and have received positive feedback from staff relating to Co-pilots. We are now receiving more requests for Co-pilots for Bayes undergraduate courses and in support of Echo lecture capture LiveStream. In the next few months, we will be reviewing the process of allocating Co-pilots to Schools.

DALI +

In the last week, we have installed DALI+ in all lecture theatres in Centenary building. These rooms have microphones, located above students, allowing them to be featured in recordings, resulting in an enhanced lecture capture experience.
