Live Annotation Capture

For a number of years the ReCap team have carried out extensive research and evaluation with the aim of enabling written content, delivered during lectures, to be captured by the ReCap system.

During our research we have tested a number of solutions from cameras pointed at whiteboards to commercial, software based, digital capture systems.  Whilst we are still working on finding a solution which meets the needs of all stakeholders we are now able to provide staff with a number of options to capture their written material if they so wish to.

If you would like any further information on any of the solutions offered then please contact the ReCap team. Training can be arranged by request.

Document Cameras/Visualiser

All centrally supported teaching spaces have a document camera (or visualiser) which is essentially a digital version of the traditional ‘overhead projector’.  Using the document camera, you can project either pre-prepared/ spontaneous written material (or objects) via the main display in the room, which is captured by ReCap.

It is also possible to zoom in to ensure that the text is legible for all students.

Interactive Displays

A number of centrally supported seminar rooms have large, wall mounted interactive displays with technology to allow digital annotation. When delivering your teaching session you can use a stylus or your finger to annotate existing presentation material or use whiteboard tool to deliver written content which is captured by ReCap.

Touch Screen Monitors

We are currently trialling a new solution in larger teaching spaces using interactive PC monitors and annotation software which is accessible from the desktop on the teaching PC.  When delivering your teaching session you can use a stylus or your finger to annotate existing presentation material or use whiteboard tool to deliver written content which is captured by ReCap.

Touch screen monitors are provided in the following rooms:-

  • Law Lecture Theatre
  • Herschel LT2
  • Dental LT D
  • Cassie 2.32
