Information

A Weblecture is a recording of a course related presentation, lecture, or workshop that can be viewed live and after the recording has taken place. This recording consists of a combination of video, sound, and what is projected on the beamer. We use the Presentations 2Go recording system to create the Weblectures. The basic principle behind Weblectures at Wageningen University & Research is that they should serve as a reference and are only intended for students in the relevant course.

We also provide recordings in the Aula of promotions, graduation ceremonies, inaugurations, and farewell speeches. Afterwards you will find the recording on Weblectures. The Servicedesk provides copies of these events, below you will find instructions for the request.

Next to course related recordings we also provide recordings on request, for example online training, conferences, press-conferences, and other events or meetings. You can send your request to the Servicedesk.

Is my course going to be recorded?

Lectures or tutorials are scheduled in rooms with recording facilities, the course coordinator will receive an email from team Weblectures three weeks before the period starts.

What about privacy?

Everyone who is going to lecture or present needs to give his or her permission to be recorded. If students are going to be recorded (e.g. student presentations) they need to give permissions during the recording. So, the lecturer who is present needs to ask the students at the start of the recording if there are any objections for a recording.

It can happen that students are recorded when they walk in front of the camera during the recording. In front of every classroom with recording equipment there is a plate that says: “lectures given in this room may be recorded for educational purposes. Events in this room may be recorded for publicity purposes.” If you do not want to be recorded make sure that you are not sitting within the range of the camera.
