Media Development Team Staff Survey

In order to better understand how we can work with staff across the college to promote the great research and events taking place I have created a short Qualtrics survey. We’re looking to not only increase awareness of what we do for the college and what support we can provide to academics and research groups, but also to see what areas we can include on the website as a general help tool. The results of this survey will help us to support the college better with it’s digital promotion. The survey is anonymous and should only take a couple of minutes to fill out and can be found at this link: https://unioflincoln.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_erm3rYQF77HriSx  

Your help in providing feedback on this is greatly appreciated.

In the meantime if you have any other questions regarding social media, blogs, corporate website updates, photography, and video please contact myself or my colleague Amy Gillard, or look through this which includes an FAQ, help guides and quick start videos on a number of topics.

Lecture Recording

Lecture recording facilities are available in all teaching spaces. There are two options for staff to wanting to record their teaching sessions:

  • Full automated Panopto recording with audio, video and slides

Nine teaching spaces have the full Panopto system. These record audio, presenter and slides. This is available within the following locations:

• Minerva: MB0312 Co-Op Lecture Theatre, MB0302 Cargill Lecture Theatre, MB1019 & MB1020
• David Chiddick: DCB1101 (250 Seat Lecture Theatre)
• Isaac Newton: INB0114 (500 Seat Lecture Theatre)
• Stephen Langdon: SLB0006 (250 Seat Lecture Theatre)
• Sarah Swift: SSB0103
• LPAC: Studio X

Recordings in these spaces need to be booked in advance. If you have any sessions you want to record in these rooms, email digitaleducation@lincoln.ac.uk with time, module code and room details. A member of the team will be available to provide support for the first session.

  • On-demand recording with audio and slides only

This system is available in all other teaching spaces across campus. These can be identified by a circular black microphone attached the front of the podium. There are two stages to using the self-service system:
Before the session the module has to be provisioned on Panopto. In the Help and Support >Panopto section on Bb there is a guide on how to do this.

At the start of the session you need to open the appropriate Blackboard module site, click on the Panopto menu button to launch the application. In the Help and Support >Panopto section on Bb there is a guide on how to do this.

If you have any questions about this process please email digitaleducation@lincoln.ac.uk and a member of the team can be available to provide support for the first time you use this process.

Qualtrics Survey Software

Free survey software is a great tool for allowing and increasing engagement across the University but did you know that many sites no longer comply with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)? To remedy this the University now offers free access to Qualtrics for all staff and students.

Qualtrics is an easy-to-use online survey software that’s powerful enough to to perform even the most sophisticated research, capture insights for process improvement, module feedback, and more. With Qualtrics, project creation is simple. You can easily collaborate your projects and share results with colleagues or other students on campus. Unlike other free online survey sites Qualtrics is compliant with General Data Protection Regulations, therefore is recommended to you by the University.

Staff Reminder: Profile photos

QTwoOTn

As the University’s corporate website has been updated, staff are being reminded to update their profile pictures on the staff directory so that they are up-to-date, and higher quality image files.

If you are a member of staff in the College of Social Science and require a professional photo for your staff profile or to accompany any material you are developing, please remember that this is a service that we in the Online Media Team can help you with.

You can either contact myself (spalfrey@lincoln.ac.uk) or Amy Gillard (amgillard@lincoln.ac.uk) to arrange a convenient time.
