DMU Replay – Equitable alternatives

There may be occasions when recording a staff-led session is not appropriate or practical. This hands on session covers the equitable alternatives to recording staff led activity using the DMU Replay software provided in teaching spaces. The session will demonstrate how the DMU Replay system can ingest and share more traditional video files that may have been recorded using faculty loaned equipment or colleagues own equipment in order to meet the DMU Replay policy requirements. Participants will try this for themselves and also explore the potential to enhance their teaching practise by using one of the suggested approaches or an equitable alternative of their own.
