This session will showcase technologies that will help you repurpose your
existing lecture materials to create reusable digital course content.
The session will show how lecturers in the Business School are using
screen recording software to create rich media content for presentations

‘Articulate’ to create rich interactive course content.
And finally, how both departments are recording lectures and repurposing
these recordings for revision and different audiences.
