Weeks 1 - 4 Semester 1, 2020 

To support students impacted by the coronavirus, the University will generate automatic transcripts for all Echo360 lecture recordings for the first four weeks of Semester 1, 2020. 

While lecture recordings will generally be accessible for students in China, some students may be challenged by low bandwidth. Transcripts will be an important alternative for students where Echo360 video is not feasible.

As advised in the Guidance for teaching cohorts impacted by coronavirus resource, teaching staff must review and edit these transcripts to improve accuracy. It is also recommended that you provide your presentation slides, notes and a separate link to the transcript file.
