The university invested in software to record lectures but most lecturers don't use the software. This makes it hard for students with disabilities who cannot always attend lectures as we cannot access the lecture.
As of now it seems a waste of money having the system when a majority of classes don't make use of it

9:46pm on 30 Jan 19 While I am not sure on the use of it to veiw from home (as attending the lecture is important to ask questions ect.) As a student with learning difficulties. the ability afterwards to go through the lecture, pause, make notes and listen to it in a comfortable area would be a huge boon.

4:05pm on 30 Jan 19 I 100% agree with this. I also think that more lecture rooms should have the Panopto technology, so that most - if not all - future lectures could be watched from home. This technology is really useful for if they have a personal emergency - meaning that they can't come in. Also for student parents, as it meant that the lecture doesn't have to affect childcare costs or what time their children are being picked up from school
