    Annual Lecturecast Archiving

    By Rod Digges, on 4 August 2014

    At the end of the academic year – All Lecturecast recordings located under available/unavailable tabs will be moved into the ‘archive’ category within the Lecturecast system – at this point they will become unavailable for viewing. Unless you have specifically requested otherwise your content will be included in this process.

    It is the responsibility of content owners who want recordings available from one academic year to the next to move their content back from ‘archive’ to ‘available’ once the archiving process has been completed

    This year, archiving will take place take place between 8.00am Thursday the 7th August and 8:00am Friday the 8th August. During this time the Lecturecast service should be considered unavailable. Please do not log into the admin interface during this period.

    Once the service is restored you will receive an email informing you that archiving is complete, content can then be un-archived – this is straightforward and details are given in the Lecturecast Guide here http://bit.ly/17m3JOX

    Next academic year the usual monthly content deletion cycle will commence in October, according to the Lecturecast Archive Policy http://bit.ly/11nfZKw

    PLEASE NOTE: Archived material will only be deleted two years after the date of its capture/recording. Thus it is critical to move old material out of the archive if you want it retained for viewing

    If you have any questions or concerns surrounding this procedure please contact ele@ucl.ac.uk
