Lecture Capture

Recordings made in the Lecture Capture system can be made available to students via Minerva.

Publishing your content


From 2016/17, scheduled lecture capture recordings will be automatically published to Minerva 72 hours from the recording being processed. For further information see the guide

You will receive an automated email from the Lecture Capture system when your recording has been processed and is ready for approval.

  • Select the top link in the email ‘Manage this presentation via Minerva’
  • You will be redirected to Minerva where you will be prompted to login using your University username and password.
  • From the Mediasite pane select the shared folders link, locate and click on the appropriate module folder e.g. 201819_00000_LCTS0001. You may need to browse for the appropriate folder using the paging buttons or dropdown list. You can also favourite a module folder which will place it under the shared folders link.
