TV and radio recorder

Image: Radio Times Cover

The University currently provides a TV and radio recorder service. This service is fully licensed and recordings from this can be used for educational use to domestic students (i.e. UK based). 

Programmes broadcast on many Freeview channels can be recorded for this purpose, and recordings can be scheduled up to one week in advance.

The above service is due to be phased out and is being replaced by ClickView which is a cloud-based TV recording service that allows you to go back in time up to 14 days and choose from thousands of TV programmes recorded from 24 free-to-air digital channels.   There is a video here which shows how to log on.

ClickView has a mashup within Blackboard which enables tutors to easily embed videos within Blackboard modules.  This video demonstrates the process.

The process for embedding ClickView videos in Mahara and other web pages is identical  to that for embedding Media Library videos in Mahara as this video demonstrates.
