KentPlayer - applications and case studies

Whilst KentPlayer is primarily used to record lectures and make these available on Moodle, there are many other uses of KentPlayer, including brief pre-recorded presentations, module introductions, live webcasts, student presentations, assessment feedback and software demonstrations. You can view videos from some of our staff on how they are using KentPlayer, and from some of our students on how they are benefitting from the recordings. We have also provided information on the potential applications of lecture capture and literature on its use.
