It was developed during 2016 and approved by Senate on 1st February 2017
At the request of the Academic Quality and Standards Committee (AQSC) a task-and-finish group was created in 2016 to review the current policy on lecture capture.
The Task and Finish Group reported into AQSC on 30th November 2016 with the Final Report.

Executive Summary of the Final Report
In response to staff and student concerns about the adoption of the Lecture Capture Service, a cross-university task-and-finish group was set up in summer 2016. The group discussed concerns and challenges in depth.
It has steered the production of a proposed Policy, Consent Form and Guidance. It has also produced some key messages to aid appropriate uptake of the service during 2016/17.
The group has made four key recommendations:
Warwick’s policy remains opt-in
Regulation 28 requires revision to support modern digital teaching practices
Staff require guidance on copyright
Staff require greater support in lecture skills
Some of these recommendations require further work beyond the scope of the Task-and-Finish Group.
Lecture Capture is a topic that attracts strong views from staff and students alike. It raises many issues of academic practice that cannot be adequately addressed by a Lecture Capture Policy alone. In autumn 2016 two WIHEA-funded projects reported on their evaluation of student use of lecture capture and found it to have a positive effect.
For the Review, the Group has aired these issues and aimed to ensure that the Draft Revised Policy, including Consent Form and Guidance is sensitive to those concerns whilst ensuring that the Service can operate. The University now needs to consider the revised policy and consider what else can be done to support effective academic practice in a digital age.

Terms of Reference
This is a fixed life task-and-finish group with the objective to create a formal Lecture Capture Policy
This will require the group to:
* identify and address areas of concern, escalating those that are beyond the remit of the Policy to solve
* take input from both within and beyond Warwick (a full consultation is not in scope)
* decide on the scope of the revised Policy
* draft key instruments of implementation such as consent forms
This group reports to AQSC.
