Teaching underway with Media Hopper Replay

The University’s new lecture recording service, Media Hopper Replay, is available for teaching in 114 rooms across the institution from September 2017.

Replay is being rolled out at scale over the next three years.  Around 300 rooms will be equipped by the start of the 2018/19 academic year and, when roll-out is complete, the total number of rooms enabled to deliver lecture recording will be 400.

The aim of the new service is to enhance student satisfaction with learning resources and academic support.  It will also offer academic colleagues the opportunity to experiment with their teaching practice and ‘flip’ their classrooms, using contact time for more interactive sessions with students.

The Student Association is committed to supporting initiatives that put Edinburgh at the forefront of learning with digital.  We care greatly about student wellbeing, and the new Replay service enhances the options available to students to support their learning.

The Lecture Recording Programme is committed to making sure academic colleagues are at the heart of implementation as Replay is made more widely available.  As a user of lecture recording, I am interested in the pedagogical aspects of lecture recording and working with colleagues to make this initiative a success for learning, teaching and the student experience.
