Lectures can be recorded using the service Echo360, see our webpage on using lecture recordings for more information
1. Check if you are teaching in a room that has lecture recording facilities – see our using lecture recordings page for more details.
2. Check if you are listed as a lecturer for the course – see the LSE timetables page for details.
3. Check that your teaching is classed as a lecture. Seminars are not automatically scheduled for recording as they may contain contributions from students who have not given their consent to be recorded.
Inquiries about existing schedules or one-off recordings should be made to LTI.firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you opt in for lecture recording you will be automatically be set up as an instructor on Echo360. You will receive an invitation from Echo360 to create an account but you do not need to set one up unless you want to carry out personal capture.
If any of your timetabled lectures are being delivered by a guest lecturer from outside of LSE then, please contact email@example.com for advice on obtaining their consent.
The official consent form can be downloaded and attached to the web form below.
For guest lecturers delivering lecturers which are not timetabled but departmental events or public events please see this flowchart on the process.
You can view your lecture recordings by setting up a link to Echo360 on Moodle see our step by step guide on how to set this up.
Your students won’t hear anything unless you use a microphone! In most rooms you can use the built-in microphone on the desktop, but in some you will need to use a radio microphone (provided in the room). In all cases, you have to make sure the microphone is plugged in and turned on!
A list of the microphone options for each room is on our using lecture recordings page. If you want to request a lapel mic or think that there is an issue with the podium mic please contact AV email: firstname.lastname@example.org, extension: 5300/5400 from any internal phone.
Please also note:
A podium mic has a range of approximately 2m from the mic, however the closer you are to the mic the better.
A lapel mic often has an on/off button, a mute button and also an indication of battery levels. Training can be provided at the start of the lecture (email email@example.com).
Boundary mics have a wider range, but sound quality isn’t as good as a podium mic when near the mic.
All safes have a digit access code. This is available by calling 5300/5400 from any internal phone including the one in the teaching room.
Lecture recordings can be viewed through Moodle. See our step by step guide on how to set this up.
Please note that your students must use the Echo360 activity in your Moodle course to access the recordings. You will not be able to distribute these links to your students by email, or on a web page outside of Moodle. Using the method above ensures that your students are correctly enrolled in your Echo360 sections. If you want to make recordings from other courses available to students on your Moodle course see our guide.

The ability to download lecture recordings is disabled by default. If you wish for your students to have the option to download the recordings, you can follow our short guide.
If you are teaching in a recording enabled room but have not scheduled the recording, you can start an ad hoc recording by following the step by step guide to setting up an ad hoc recording. This option can be used to record seminars as long as you have obtained written consent from your students to be recorded.
