Traditional lecture content delivery should be pre-recorded, to take advantage of asynchronous learning designs.


CBE has reserved four lecture theatres for recording use by CBE staff during Semester 2. Pending the technology available in the lecture room users should have access to the following inputs:

  • PC Desktop (record anything displayed on the desktop)
  • Document camera
  • HDMI input – connect a personal device/laptop using a HDMI input (users may need an adaptor to connect the HDMI cable to their device)
  • Some lecture spaces are also enabled with Whiteboard capture. Tip: users should create initial test recording to confirm clarity – take into account lighting that creates glare, writing size, marker colour, how much of the whiteboard is captured by the camera etc.



Recordings can be made using Echo360 Universal Capture, Zoom, Microsoft PowerPoint or any other recording software. The table below includes links to ANU supported software and details some of their key features.

Note: a greater number of shorter recordings are more appropriate than traditional hour-long lecture blocks.

Previous content

Where possible, past recordings should not be recycled for semester 2, unless they are high quality and appropriate. 

Re-use a recording from a previous year or semester >>


Recorded lectures should be made available at a regular time each week.

  • For content uploaded to Echo360 availability settings can be included when sharing or copying content to your course site and amended at any time in the availability settings.
  • Availability for content uploaded directly to Wattle sites can be managed using access restrictions (available in the activity or resource settings).


If lectures are designed to include an interactive component, then live delivery is acceptable provided that the lectures are recorded and made available to all students.

Live lectures can be delivered using Echo360 Universal Capture or Zoom (Adobe Connect can also be used however is currently only accessible to students studying in Australia). The table below includes links to ANU supported software and details how they can support live teaching.
