Recording Oral Lectures

In an effort to assist students with specific learning needs the University allows this group of students to record lectures in accordance with a set procedure.

It is important to note that if you need to record oral lectures the content of an oral lecture remains the property of the lecturer delivering it. If recording a lecture, the recording must be used only for your own personal study; you should not reproduce it or pass it on to anyone else other than for transcription purposes.


ReCap resources are created by your lecturers to provide valuable additional learning resources. Any recordings made for you will usually be made available via the Virtual Learning Environment i.e. Blackboard or the LSE.

It is important to understand that not all teaching sessions will be recorded and there are a number of reasons for this including:

  • Lecturers may not choose to record their sessions if the content or delivery is not appropriate.
  • Lecturers may decide to only make their recordings available during a certain period of time (e.g. revision periods)
  • In team-taught modules, one lecturer may choose to record their lectures whilst another might not.
  • The session may have taken place in a teaching rooms which isn't ReCap enabled.
  • There may have been a technical fault in-venue which may have prevented a recording from taking place.
