Lecture Capture

Latest information about our Lecture Capture project.

Lecture Capture will enable Manchester Met’s ambition to enhance our teaching and learning digital capabilities, improve engagement with our students and support their independent learning. 

What is Lecture Capture?

Lecture Capture is a system that captures lecture content (audio and projector output only) which is then available to students in Moodle within 2 working days. From September 2018 Lecture Capture will be in enabled in the Lecture Capture locations

After feedback from staff and UCU we are operating Lecture Capture with an opt-in to automatic publishing process. More information about this process is available on our training and resources page. 


At Manchester Met, we strive to create an excellent learning environment and outstanding teaching experience, placing our students and their success at the heart of the University.

As such, we are introducing Lecture Capture at Manchester Metropolitan University to meet the needs of our staff and students and build on our technology enhanced learning offering. Students and academic staff have raised Lecture Capture as a service which would improve the effectiveness of teaching, giving students a vital learning resource.

The key benefits of Lecture Capture are:

Improved opportunities for learning – Lecture Capture will enhance learning by allowing our students to replay and revisit their lectures, supporting their own independent learning and improving inclusivity of our key resources.

Enhanced brand and reputation – Lecture Capture will ensure that we keep pace with the sector in terms of enhanced learning provision, as Manchester Met continues to  drive improvement through innovation in learning and teaching. Our students have asked for Lecture Capture and we are delivering.

Please note: Lecture Capture is not intended as a replacement for attending lectures and not every lecture will be captured. 


We are introducing Lecture Capture in the following phases:

The pilot trialled Lecture Capture in a small number of locations. Staff and students involved in the pilot have helped to feed into process improvement for further rollout by identifying any issues and areas to improve.

When fully implemented, Lecture Capture will be available in the Lecture Capture locations across the University.
