Catch up with lecture capture – now available on your mobile and tablet!

It’s trimester break next week. That also means you’re almost halfway through the trimester (eeek!).

If you’re wanting to make the most of your break and ensure you’re on top of all content, why not use Lecture Capture to watch your lecture online?

Generally, your lectures will be recorded using Echo360 Lecture Capture technology. You can access these recordings online via Learning@Griffith, or on your smartphone or tablet with the brand-spankin’-new Echo360 app!

To access lecture recordings online:

  • Simply log in to Learning@Griffith with your Griffith University username and password, head on over to your course site, and you’ll see a link to your lecture recordings on the left hand menu.

To access lecture recordings on your smartphone or tablet:

  • Download the app from iTunes for Apple, Google Play for Android or the Microsoft Store for Windows.
  • When logging in, don’t use your regular student email address (e.g. john.citizen@griffithuni.edu.au), but rather your sNumber at griffithuni.edu.au (e.g. s1234567@griffithuni.edu.au). This is actually an alias to your regular email address and linked to your usual email address in Learning@Griffith.
  • Note that you’ll need to click through each Echo360 link from each Learning@Griffith course you’re enrolled in at least once. This single passthrough into the Echo360 session establishes the connection between you and the course. Once you’ve done this, the course will appear in the Echo360 app.

You’ll find a range of awesome features with Echo360:

  • Access recordings anywhere and any time.
  • Take notes alongside the video recordings (not available on the app).
  • Bookmark important sections – super helpful for revision! Did the lecturer just say this would be on the exam? *bookmark*!
  • Increase the speed of which you’re listening to the lecture, if you want to power through it.

There’s also a download option that allows you to save a copy of the recording files (mp3 and m4v) to your device and play it without an internet connection.

Maybe you’d like to play the lectures while you sleep. Not cause the sound of your professor’s voice actually puts you to sleep. No, no. For the hope that the information will disseminate into your brain subliminally while you snooze.

In fact, a study by Arzi and colleagues (2012, p. 1460) found that ‘during sleep, humans can strengthen previously acquired memories’. Crikey, we may have just solved all of your time management problems!

Your intro to Learning@Griffith

It’s the first day of Trimester 1, and if it’s your first week at Griffith, you may be feeling a tad overwhelmed. Don’t fret though, we’re here to help.

We’re full of wise tips, like:

  • don’t pay for Microsoft Office–download it for free as a student,
  • don’t start binge-watching the second season of 13 Reasons Why during study week–you won’t do any study, and
  • if you want to look at gifs and memes without feeling guilty, follow us on Twitter. Totally educational.

We’re also here to talk you through the essentials, like Learning@Griffith.

Learning@Griffith is your online learning environment. Each one of your subjects will have a course site in Learning@Griffith–to get there simply log into Learning@Griffith, and select your course under My Courses and Organisations.

Typically, this will take you to the course Announcements page. On the left-hand navigation menu, you’ll see links to all the important stuff you’re gonna need for that subject over the trimester.

Your course convenor controls these folders, and will upload any important information and content you’ll need such as lecture notes, assessment details, supplementary readings, your grades and so on. While the folders may look slightly different for each of your courses, they’ll generally include the following:

  • Course Profile–This will provide an overview of the subject, learning and teaching aims, content and assessment.
  • Course Content–Your Course Content is mostly broken down by teaching weeks. Just click the relevant week to access all resources for that period.
  • Staff Information–Find contact details for your teaching staff.
  • Assessment–Your convenor will upload relevant assessment information here.
  • My Marks-View your grades for assessment items.

If your subject has lectures scheduled, they will be automatically recorded, and you’ll be able to access  your lecture recordings via this menu too with our Echo360 technology.

Similarly, if your subject has assigned readings, you should be able to find a link to all required and recommended readings here under Readings.

If you need any help accessing and navigating Learning@Griffith, simply click the little question mark at the top right to open the Learning@Griffith Support Centre, or you can Ask Us or ring the IT Service Centre.

You’re a student. You work hard, study hard, and enjoy a diet of mi goreng (and hopefully some more substantial food, too).
