King's has invested in a significant expansion of lecture capture technology over the summer of 2015. This means that you should find most of your lectures available via lecture capture.
If your classes are being recorded by lecture capture they will be available automatically via a link on the module KEATS page. This should normally be within a few hours of the lecture taking place.
Please note however that not all classes are captured; some smaller rooms are not equipped with any lecture capture technology, and some may not be equipped with appropriate technology to capture the teaching in your classes. Your lecturer should tell you at the start of term if the class is being recorded. There will also be some variance in what is captured, it may be audio only, audio and slides, or video, audio and slides. Lecture capture is also currently only being used for teaching that is in a lecture format, so it won't include tutorials, seminars or labs.
Rooms that are equipped for lecture capture will have a red light on the podium, usually close to the PC monitor –when the light is on and showing steady red, a recording is taking place. Your lecturer can pause a recording by tapping on the button on top of the red light. When paused, the light will blink on and off to indicate that the recording is paused.
The recordings are designed to augment a lecture rather than replace it, and should never be viewed as an alternative to attending in person. Attendance is still required as before. You will probably find the recordings much more useful as a revision aid and to help when going over your notes from a class. You should also be aware that while the recording system is very robust, it is not infallible, and that your lecturer may choose to opt out of a recording.
