University Library Suggestions


Record video lectures in the capture system

I know you guys don't do the audio visual stuff for lectures but can you suggest that the university starts considering video recording lecturers as opposed to just the powerpoint content? Curtin videotapes nearly all lectures and lets you view the lecturer. It follows them around the room. And on top of that it records the two projector's output like we do!

It's so much better than what we have!

Blackboard Mobile Learn Not Working

Blackboard Mobile Learn does not work properly on iOS. Currently it does work but it does not adjust to mobile devices and does not send push notifications. The current Blackboard is also not intuitive to use. Please fix this as it makes me very sad.

Echo360 Subpar?

Being From an hour and a half away makes me want to do all the work I can from home as ill get more done. When where paying upward of $1000 per unit, I would expect better online lecture recording solution. When the lectures show a few slides and the rest of the class is on the blackboard its extremely frustrating to try and piece together the material. Honestly why are there no cameras showing the front of the room, I cant imagine it would be a great expense and would be extremely useful in most cases, as shown at other institutions.

LCS playback speed, only audio is allowed to be played at a different speed, can you please extend that to the visual as well?

First of all thank you for listening to the students' suggestion to allow users with the ability to control playback speeds.

It is a very very useful feature and I can't thank you guys more for that.

However, when I choose the media playback speed at a speed that is x2 (twice the original speed), the video window stops working when the speed is other then 1.0.
i.e., only the audio content is allowed to be played at a different speed.

Therefore, may I suggest CATL and IS to allow the video window to be played at a higher speed?

Extend Echo Recording Time

Your name: 

Hi there,

Is it possible to extend the Echo Recording times on lectures?

At least 90% of my recorded lectures are cut off because the recording time of 48 minutes is not long enough.

Thanking you for your consideration,


There have been a few times when the lecture has recorded the audio but not the visual

Your name: 

There have been a few times when the lecture has recorded the audio but not the visual. That is, you view a blank screen, not slides, when the lecturer talks. A recent lecture on 3/04/14 at 1:00pm in physics: ross lecture theatre (G41) failed to record visual for the unit anhb2217. It makes it impossible to follow what the lecturer is saying half the time because he uses the drawing tool a lot to show pathways and structures during the lecture (which shows up on the recording usually). Is there any way to fix this before tuesday so that students can catch up before the next lecture?
