Brief description

Recording of courses and video on demand

Examples of use

LectureTube allows you to record courses with little effort and make them available as a multimedia learning resource in TUWEL. The recording includes the content on the screen of the presentation laptop, the audio signal of the auditorium sound system and, optionally in some lecture halls, a camera image of what is happening in the auditorium. Furthermore, a document camera is ready to record real objects, for example experiments or handwritten elaborations on paper. The recording can be added to a video stream. At the end of the course, the recordings are automatically sent to the LectureTube server, where the individual channels are combined into a multimedia, searchable learning stream.

Examples for use:

  • Recording lectures
  • Recording exercises
  • Recording learning units in the lecture hall

Instructions & How-To

Questions & Answers

The Teaching Support Center offers LectureTube as a platform for recording and/or live-streaming of your lecture. Video on demand is also an option.

Videos can be made available individually or in a series, only within TU Wien or world wide.

The recording starts automatically at your pre-ordered time slots, after the programming is successfully completed in TISS. No additional user interaction in the lecture hall is necessary.

We collect frequently asked question and answers here. Please check whether your issue is already on the list and a suitable answer is given. Thereby, you help to reduce the currently significantly increased workload for support by the Teaching Support Center.

 I have already used LectureTube to support my lecture (LVA). Does anything change for me now?

Nothing changes for you. You continue to lecture in the usual (but empty) lecture hall at your usual time. Be aware that you have to use and turn on the microphone and beamer! Your videos will be provided within a short time span, as they were usually up to now as well. (The time span can be a bit longer than usual, due to increased workload.)

 How can I program my LectureTube recording in TISS?

You will find all necessary information at the website of the Teaching Support Center under "LectureTube":

Instructions on "LectureTube Programmierung in TISS" can be found at the TUWEL Tutorials Course or in TU coLAB: 

 Can I resuse my recordings form last year? If yes, how?

Certainly, that is a good solution in the current situation. In order to achieve that, you only have to freshly connect the series ID with the Player ID in your current TUWEL course (this works also for single videos of this series).

There are 2 steps to follow:

  • Step 1: Open your last year's TUWEL course and go to the settings of the videos (external tool). Copy the IDs from the section "General" (Allgemeines") / "Show more ..." ("Mehr anzeigen ...") / "Custom parameters" ("Angepasste Parameter").
  • Step: 2: Now you have to re-connect your IDs within your current TUWEL course of this summer semester. How to achieve this, is explained starting from step 7 of this instruction.

 I lecture at a lecture hall equipped with LectureTube. How can I use LectureTube?

You will find all important information about "LectureTube" on the website of the Teaching Support Center listed concisely under "LectureTube". This information is also briefly summarized here in this PDF. Please note that this information is available only in German at the moment. 

 I hold my lecture (LVA) in a lecture room that is NOT equipped with LectureTube. What do I have to do to use LectureTube?

You need to have booked a lecture hall equipped with LectureTube via TISS. Please contact the "zentrales Lehr- und Lernressourcenmanagement". They will support you in any necessary re-scheduling and re-bookings due to streaming and are also there for your questions regarding lecture rooms.

As soon as you have a lecture hall equipped with LectureTube, you shall follow the further steps described at the question "I lecture at a lecture hall equipped with LectureTube. How can I use LectureTube?"

 Is my lecture hall equipped with LectureTube?

On this coLAB page in the room information section you can find a list of all lecture halls that are equipped with LectureTube.

 Can I upload videos I have produced on my own on to TUWEL?

No. We kindly ask you to refrain from uploading videos you have produced on your own to TUWEL. Please resort to make recordings in the existing lecture halls with LectureTube equipment or use the new TU-internal video platform TUpeerTube to produce teaching videos. Further information and instructions can be found after registration in the section Distance Learning Good Practice.

Should you have institute servers at your disposal, you may upload your videos there and then link them to TUWEL. Please note, the accessing by students may possibly cause a slightly higher load on your servers. Make sure your videos have been reduced by means of a good video compression.

 How can I transmit my lecture (LVA) directly into TUWEL?

Instructions for "Live Streaming" with LectureTube Live can be found on this page.

Starting on page 4 of this PDF tutorial, you will see how to set up the playback of the live stream in TUWEL. Please note that the live stream in the lecture hall must be started and stopped manually.

My question is not answered here!
