Did you miss the Lecture Capture Symposium in May this year? Fear not! You can watch the presentations here. Many thanks to all of our speakers, who represented the universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews.
Next semester will see the launch of new space for TELStA activities in the Gateway Building (formerly Seminar Rooms 4 & 5 in the basement of the building). This will be a specially developed and supported space where staff can come and try out new technologies to enhance their teaching, on their own or with small groups of students. Watch this space for more news on this exciting development!
We’re looking for a name for the TELStA space – you can make your suggestions here.
All our technologies are designed to support one or more of the learning activities described here.
Here’s a taste of one of the technologies you’ll be able to try out: the SmartKapp mobile whiteboard.

This year, we are participating for the first time in the JISC Student Digital Tracker. This annual sector-wide survey will provide us with useful evidence from students as we seek to develop technology enhanced learning across the University. It will also allow us to benchmark ourselves against the sector. Please encourage your students to access the survey at http://tracker.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/uosta.
TELStA welcomes Daryl Haynes to the team as Lecture Capture Co-ordinator. Daryl joins us on a one-year secondment from Media Services (so he will already be a familiar face to many of you). He will be working on technical implementation, training and communication around the Lecture Capture service. He is also happy to advise on other classroom-based technologies. Daryl can be contacted on email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
