Re/Play upgrade Thursday 12 October – delay in publishing of some lectures

Re/Play was upgraded yesterday morning (12 October).  While the upgrade has improved playback performance, it unfortunately resulted in a delay in the automatic publishing of  lectures recorded from 5 pm on Monday until 6 pm Tuesday.

We have rectified this and made the materials visible.  Many apologies for the inconvenience caused.

To make a recording private:

  1. Go to the My Re/Play tab in Blackboard
  2. Find the recording
  3. Change the setting from ‘Viewable’ to ‘Private’.

 

 

 

Re/Play extension activity and maintenance this week (midnight – 4:00 am on both Tuesday 10 and Thursday 12 October)

This is a reminder that there will be two disruptions to service this week as we  maintain and enhance the service:

  • The Re/Play service will have limited availability on Tuesday 10 October between midnight and 4:00 am. There will be several short outages of 5 minutes during these hours as essential data centre work is carried out.
  • The Re/Play service will be unavailable for up to four hours between midnight and 4:00 am on Thursday 12 October. This work will improve playback for staff and students.

We are working to enhance and extend the service through a new program of investment, aiming to:

  • Simplify, standardise and complete recording equipment provision in centrally managed, large teaching spaces
  • Extend the scope of the service to better accommodate disciplinary requirements (eg record chalkboards and whiteboards, recording in smaller teaching spaces)
  • Develop, implement and evaluate case studies of media to enhance teaching and differentiate assessment.
