How to use Encore

Encore has been designed to fit smoothly into the normal experience of delivering a lecture. By default, timetabled lectures will be automatically recorded and made available to students via Ultra after one working day. By pressing the light button on the lectern, lecturers can easily control which sections of a lecture will be published.

This page provides information on how to manage lecture recordings and optimise them for added benefits as well as helpful slides for staff to use when introducing Encore to students.
