Digital teaching resources
Minerva. Leeds' teaching system - the student's first contact with the module module. Can be used to email students, return grades...
Lectures Video Recording Mediasite: live lectures are recorded onto this automatically. Here you can edit, (un)publish, download and manage the lecture video recordings. Lectures are recorded by default, you will be emailed a link after your lecture (to make it accessible click the padlock icon), otherwise they become accessible to your students after 72 hours (change this behaviour).
OBS Opensource software which allows you to combine multiple video source (powerpoint, video, screen capture, multiple cameras) and stream at the same time as recording (i.e. to upload to MS Stream).
ffmpeg -i "2020-09-28 08-57-35.mkv" -vcodec h264_nvenc out.mp4
MS Streams. (sign in with UoL account). A streaming platform which works better than Mediasite, but without all the nice integration with lecture-theatre cameras. Faster upload/encoding/captions etc... Good integration with MS Teams.
Zoom is available for staff here. Click sign-in. I used this to run tutorials to avoid calling the entire MS Teams channel.
MS Teams is the default tool for running classrooms during Covid. I've had issues scaling (with 300 students the ever-reordering conversations becomes problematic. In computing there is a teams channel for each module.
Useful Stream Channels with tutorials on tools and technology:
Youtube downloader to embed youtube videos in slides etc... Make sure you have permission!
Gradescope. Useful tool for online exams/weekly pop-quizes, excellent smart exam grading UI (more automated/faster than Minerva).
