Statement on ListenAgain

A few weeks ago, the University agreed to make the recording of lectures through ListenAgain a mandatory requirement in all lectures where recording is possible. This represents a huge achievement for the student voice and representatives, who have actively pushed for such a decision for a number of years. Students at a recent Education Zone Meeting overwhelmingly backed a motion to support the roll-out of lecture recording across the University.

Introduced in 2010, ListenAgain allows for the recording of both audio and visual footage from lectures, this provides an invaluable learning resources to all students – not least those with additional support needs. In addition to the requirement to record, there is an expectation that staff will make these recordings available to students as soon as practical after the lecture has taken place. This will also tackle the unfair practice of password protecting audio files that has grown all to common in the past few months.

Work will now begin on drafting a formal policy, but it’s important not to forget the milestone we’ve crossed on the path to creating a truly inclusive University.
