I have lobbied for recorded lectures with the University because I know that we can't always attend all lectures and 100% concentrate in every lecture. Therefore recorded lectures of the slides and discussions would work wonders during my assignment writing and revision. The universities response to recorded lectures was:
"We wouldn't want students not turning up to lectures if they think they can just watch the recording after the lecture has taken place"
I think this is a fair comment to say, but attendance monitoring is in place and it is up to students on their attendance and students at a disadvantage should not miss out on lectures. Recorded lectures will also improve academic attainment.
