Re/Play – getting ready for the start of term

Over the next couple of weeks, the Digital Education Office are finalising preparations for the Re/Play service for the coming academic year.

  • During the week commencing 13 September, the Digital Education Office will be updating all Blackboard courses to ensure the correct tools are available to teaching staff, and links for students in the left-hand menu for automated room recordings are added.
  • On 18 September, Mediasite will be moving our service to a new data centre to provide an increase in service reliability and to support our live streaming provision; this work will take place between 12am and 4am. We do not envisage their being any outage during this period, but it should be considered an ‘at risk’ time.
  • From 19 September, staff will see two small changes to the My Re/Play Tab in Blackboard: the search bar in the top right of the frame will now be larger, and the “Add Presentation” button will move to the left-hand side. See the new layout (video)
  • Also from the 19 September, the student view of recordings from teaching spaces will change to be a more user-friendly interface with a ’tiled’ view.
