Webcasts & Podcasts
- Staff can apply to have lectures / events recorded

Webcasts and podcasts are ways of ensuring that students are able to attend lectures regardless of circumstances. This is useful for large classes. Students also review webcast lectures to revise lessons. Events can also be webcast so that people who could not attend can still experience the event after it takes place.
Automated and fuss-free
When you send your request, you will be presented with a wide range of choices to suit your requirements. You can choose to webcast, podcast or both. There are various viewing rights to choose from, and webcasts can be shown live or delayed. Once the request has been confirmed, all you have to do is deliver the lecture. CIT will do the rest.
Features and integration
Webcast lectures go beyond showing a video of the lecturer. Presentation slides or the computer's desktop can be shown, enabling lecturers to demonstrate software or display live web pages. Presentation slides in webcasts also come with an index, which allows students to jump to specific points in the lecture. Webcast lectures are published within IVLE for convenience. If you are webcasting a public event, you can choose to publish to NUS on YouTube for greater reach.
