Evaluation and Research

As part of the expansion and development of lecture recording at Edinburgh, we are running a multi-year research and evaluation workstream. As well as continuing research, we are offering new research opportunities to academic colleagues through the Principal's Teaching Award Scheme (PTAS). This workstream is being overseen by the Engagement and Evaluation Group. Find out more about all these activities here, including how you might conduct your own research.


In the first year of operation over 400 courses were recorded. 18,812 individual students accessed the service and around 500,000 hours of content was watched.
