Automating Lecture Capture Using Opencast


Lecture recordings are being used more and more by universities. To be able to achieve a high coverage of recorded lectures this process needs to be automated. At the University of Münster this is being done by using Opencast in combination with fixed recording equipment in the lecture halls. The lectures are being recorded automatically and most of the video processing is automated as well. Although, not the whole work process is automated yet, there are ways to make this possible in the future by connecting a learning management system or a campus management system.
