LITEbox - Santander Technology Fund announces first funding awards

The LITEbox team is delighted to announce the first three successful awards from its new Santander Technology Fund, launched in November 2017. Supported by Santander, as part of the company's wider support of a range of initiatives across the University, the Technology Fund was established with the aim of continuing to create an environment where the University at large can learn about new and existing technologies to support learning and teaching, and share experiences.
These selected projects are supported with funding to include hardware and software purchases and range from £1500 to £4500 per project with a maximum of two years duration.

The first three successful awards are:

  1. Project Name: Uni-LAB (Undergraduate Innovation Laboratory) 
    Led by: Dr Peter Sloan, Lecturer, Dept. of Physics and Mr. Keith Brown, Faculty of Science Learning Technologist
    Duration: February 2018 to September 2019 (three Semesters)The “UNI-LAB” an UNdergraduate Innovation LABoratory" is a maker-space where students especially in the Physics department can work together, designing and building with 3D printers, laser-cutters and cheap Raspberry Pi computers. This space will encourage envisioning the next state-of-the-art technologies including making robot devices, automated telescopes, fusion reactor, sound synthesiser, and ideas for advanced computer programming.
    For details here.
  2. Project Name: Interactive Whiteboard  
    Led by: Ben Metcalfe, Lecturer, Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
    Duration: February 2018 to February 2019This project aims to enhance existing good practice by increasing the engagement of all types of learners with active learning during lectures and tutorials. The primary aim is to introduce a technology that permits real time capture of diagrams and equations, encourages student engagement through assistive learning techniques, and improves accessibility at all levels.
  3. Project Name: Circular Economy Toolkit 
    Led by: Alisha Tuladhar, PhD Researcher, School of Management
    Duration: February 2018 to February 2019This project is centred around a program-specific subject: the ‘Circular Economy’ (CE), which is usually taught in Sustainability, Innovation or Design and even Business Management Courses. A circular economy is a regenerative system in which resource input and waste, emission, and energy leakage are minimised by slowing, closing, and narrowing material and energy loops. The project will collaborate closely with ‘Circular Economy Club’, an international non-profit organization who are already planning to organize ‘Circular Economy Mapping Week’ around the world and contact the best events or entrepreneurs, study them and produce knowledge resources. Materials and toolkits will be produced: well-crafted case studies and concept videos would be the main project outcomes. This would benefit both academics and practitioners in the CE field.

    As part of the first bidding round, there were also three other interesting projects, all of which the LITEbox panel were keen to support. Further discussions, and an opportunity to revise and edit bids, are now underway with these bidders.

    The second bidding round for the Santander Technology Fund is now open with a closing deadline of 28 February 2018. Find out further information about bidding. Alternatively, you can email the LITEbox team directly with any questions or for an informal discussion.

Applications for Santander Technology Fund - Now Open

  , , ,

📥  Uncategorized


The LITEbox Team is pleased to announce the availability of funding for technology-related projects, open to all students and staff. Santander have teamed up with LITEbox and the University for the first time to offer a total of £30,000 across two years for innovative and inclusive ideas to facilitate progression in teaching and learning. By providing funding and visibility, the LITEbox team wishes to encourage staff-student collaboration to support change across teaching and learning to enhance the student experience.

While the project will be judged on a case-by-case basis, projects submitted under the following categories are more likely to be successful.

How does this fund differ from other funding sources?

There are very few funds that allow the purchases of equipments such as iPads or 3D Printers for example. This fund is aiming to provide a different type of support to enable further and deeper exploration of what technology has to offer in enhancing the student experience and bringing teaching and research closer together. It is important to note that successful bids for equipment will be funded on the agreement that the equipment becomes part of the LITEBox Digital Playground following project completion.

Staff-student collaboration, to include students at all levels is a key aim of this fund and, in particular, student-led projects.

To maximise this opportunity, there are rolling deadlines throughout the academic year with three deadlines during the academic calendar, as follows:

Round 1 - 8th   December 2017

Round 2 - 28th February 2018

Round 3 - 31st May 2018

Please note that successful applicants will be asked to contribute to the LITEbox community through seminars, blog posts and/or "cafe style" introductory/dissemination events. Santander may also contact the applicant for personal information, and an impact report to understand the outcomes and impact generated from the project will be required.

Online Engaged Teaching hub launched

📥  Uncategorized

Following a successful series of workshops showcasing good practice of using technology to facilitate public engagement within teaching at the University of Bath, a project led by Dr Jessica Francombe-Webb, Lecturer in the Department for Health, funded by the University's Teaching Development Fund (TDF), has successfully launched its online hub.  The online hub, which can be found at,  will be updated periodically with the remaining findings of the project. You are invited to make use of the ‘follow’ function available on the website to enable you to receive email notifications when updates are made. This project has built on LITEbox, an Alumni-funded initiative supporting the exploration and adoption of new and existing technology enhanced learning tools and techniques for learning and teaching.

You may also be interested in the project’s “The 3 W’s of Engaged Teaching” Public Engagement Map, which can be downloaded electronically Alternatively, you can email Ed Stevens in the Public Engagement Unit to obtain a physical copy.

The project staged three workshops, which took place between December 2016 and April 2017, exploring a range of different approaches and methodologies for using technology to facilitate engagement with wider audiences to enrich teaching within the classroom. These findings have been captured within the online hub, which will also form part of a new Learning & Teaching Resources Hub, currently under development by the Centre for Learning & Teaching.

Attending the final workshop entitled ‘Developing engaged curricula: At Bath and Beyond’, which included a webinar featuring different methods of engagement with different audiences and their role education, Dr Marianne Ellis, Associate Dean (Learning & Teaching), Faculty of Engineering & Design and current Chair of the University’s TDF Sub-Committee said:

“This was a fascinating workshop which reinforced the importance of continuing to use TDF funding to push the boundaries of our thinking, both in relation to research-enriched teaching and also what new and existing technologies have to offer us for our future curriculum development. Participating in a workshop of this kind which used the technology to bring in external speakers to stimulate debate was excellent. I would encourage colleagues to explore the ‘Engaged Teaching’ hub and consider ideas for how we might build on this good work through the Teaching Development Fund and in our day-to-day teaching practices.”

During this workshop the project team also launched its public engagement map, designed to help you plan more effective and engaging activities.

Workshop 1, entitled “Developing engaged curricula: The challenges of technology and reflexivity” showcased the work of Dr Fran Laughton (Director of Teaching, Dept. of Physics). The second workshop, entitled “Developing engaged curricula: Film as critical pedagogy” showcased the work of Dr Darragh McGee (Lecturer, Dept. for Health). The penultimate workshop, “Developing engaged curricula: Industry engagement and technology” included a panel discussion regarding the role of technology in enhancing student engagement with industry partners.

Dr Sarah Bonner, Public Engagement Consultant for the University of Birmingham and external speaker at the final workshop commenting on the project said:

“Working with the LITEbox team and their colleagues has been an important project for me both personally and professionally. After over 15 years working within the higher education sector I have been involved in a variety of public engagement projects, but the focus on technological facilitation that Jess and her team embarked upon showed innovation, bravery, open mindedness and an enthusiasm to ‘have a go’. The collaborative nature of the project was a real strength and it was clear that the team were willing to learn from different disciplinary perspectives in order to ensure that honest conversations were had that progressed the work in the short term but can also have an impact in the future both within Bath and beyond.”

The project team would like to express their sincere thanks to LITEbox, the Teaching Development Fund, and the Public Engagement Unit at the University of Bath for making this project possible. The insights highlighted have been innovative and inspiring, and it is hoped that the map and online hub can be used to continue documenting examples of best practice here at the University of Bath and inspiring new endeavours in technology-facilitated engaged teaching.

Panopto Re:View Event - Reflection (incl. Session Recordings)

  , , , ,

📥  Event Review, LITEbox Event


On Thursday 25th May 2017, William Gaffney and Dave Hannan from Panopto came to to the University to provide training related to the Panopto Re:View system. There were 4 main sessions, covering a variety of material relevant to all direct and indirect users.

The event was recorded via Panopto, and the training sessions can be viewed by clicking on the links below:

Basic Recording, Editing and Publishing Features:

The first of the 4 sessions focused on the basic functioning of the Panopto desktop client; and the session included methods of accessing the Panopto hub, recording manually and selecting different sources of recording (i.e. internal/external audio or visual devices). Demonstration was given on how to access the hub via the desktop (although assistance from IT services may be needed to download this on networked machines), as well as coverage of the differences between the video, screen and slide recording states.

The customisability of different features were discussed, including the enabling of hotkeys, allowing you to Start (F8), Pause/Resume (F9) and Stop (F10) recordings at the press of a key. The session then moved onto folder options, and storage of recordings into specific areas, with each Re:View profile having a “My Folder” by default, and within that sub-folders can be made with titles specific to their content i.e. Recordings 2017 - a useful feature in keeping recordings organised. Other coverage regarded stopping/starting the recording when outside of the Panopto environment, i.e. browsing a webpage, as well as the ability to set default authoring for a session (i.e. automatic or pending approval).

Throughout the session the groups were given opportunity to break out and try the newly learning skills for themselves in a simulated environment, with the first session providing an excellent "whistle stop tour" of the key features and functions.

Advanced Editing and Publishing Features:

The second of our sessions covered advanced editing and publishing features, focusing on post-production capabilities. The ability to crop videos was a popular feature, with many of the group knowing the mechanism for removing wasted recording at the start and end of a lecture capture. However the session also covered methods of editing specific source content, whereby audio can be cut, slides deleted and video shortened at desired points throughout the recording, not just limited to the start or finish. The “Publish” button allowed the user to save these changes, however importantly the original content was still retrievable – in case one was over zealous with their editing.

The session then covered the different functions of the task bar, and in turn the captioning service (a.k.a. transcription), which completes automatically from the microphone recording with at least a 70% accuracy rate (although the algorithm is always getting better). This transcription can then be edited to ensure coherence to the presentation. The final editing feature discussed was that of slide duplication, illustrating the process of re-inserting slides at points throughout the lecture, as well delaying the end of slides, which are useful in aligning with audio references.


Using Panopto to Capture Student Work:

The third session covered Panopto from the student-interaction perspective. Basic features including filtering by date, duration and name were covered, alongside the widely underused “Notes” feature. Despite its presence from the start of the Panopto implementation within the University, usage of “Notes” are largely ignored by students. Available on the viewer’s sidebar, notes can be made and timestamped next to specific parts of the recording to allow easy revisiting, they can be made public or private (private by default), grouped into different channels for group work or personalised communication, and a similar “Discussion” tab can be selected to promote communication both amongst themselves and with the lecturer.

The use of Panopto as a video assignment function was also covered, allowing the creation and access provision of “assignment folders” for specific individuals or groups of individuals. This would facilitate both individual and group work, alongside the ability to provide video feedback, creating a video trail of communication. Methods of providing access inherited from registration to groups on Moodle facilitates specific module based work, while access transference of the folder to fellow teaching staff for moderation and second marking was also demonstrated.

New/Extended Functionalities:

The final session provided opportunity for Dave Hannan to demonstrate the new features and functionality possible within Panopto:

Panopto App: 

Released very recently, the Panopto App, available on IoS and Android, allows the management of videos within your Panopto profile environment. Recordings can be downloaded and viewed through the App, and basic recording can be accomplished through the phone/tablet speaker-video system. This is ideal for managing and viewing content on the go. It is worth noting that this does not work in tandem with Moodle, therefore should be used more for a portable management tool, as opposed to downloading videos for external use and dissemination.

Adding quizzes:

The next new feature was that of Quizzing. Accessible on the post-recording edit hub, a Quiz can be inputted to test the knowledge and understanding of the viewers at certain points. These can be in the form of Multiple Choice, True/False or Multiple Select (i.e. select 2 of the following that are correct). Quizzes can be customised to prevent the viewer moving on until it has been answered, or until it has been correctly answered, and the results can be downloaded to Excel for performance tracking. Contextual explanations for right and wrong answers can also be provided by the user, which will automatically show when complete.

An interesting question, aptly related to quizzing, was in relation to open text quizzes. Currently only MCQs, quantitative approach questions are possible, as it facilitates automated grading and marking, however the possible introduction of open-answer quizzing is under consideration.

Live notes:

Although the note taking facility was already in place, live notes is now present, allowing viewers to access a live recording and take notes as they go. These will be recorded in real time, and have the same capabilities i.e. public/private, channels, as the post-production note taking discussed previously.

YouTube Embedding:

An important new feature due to be introduced on June 10th is that of YouTube embedding. This allows the user to take a YouTube video and embed it into the recording post-production, without having to simply reference the link for viewers to access independently. This again is customisable, with the option to keep the YouTube controls for pause/resume, as well as select the start and end point desired within the video. This has positive implications for ease of use and Copyright, discussed below.

Following demonstration, audience members were given the ability to try out these features in their environments, and the event ended just before 3pm.


Key Considerations:

Closed Captioning: An important consideration was that of Closed Captioning. With Panopto offering a free service that provides at least a 70% accuracy rate, this still leaves potentially 3 in 10 words possibly incorrect, which could make the entire transcription meaningless. While this is due to improve with time, and there is more expensive software that can provide this service more accurately, it is recommended you check and change your transcription when available. This assists with student learning, with all viewers having the option to turn on Closed Captions when they access the recording. Transcription can be uploaded manually, either via the editing of the automated service, or the upload of a pre-written transcription file.

Copyright Considerations: Another important topic discussed was that of Copyright limitations, that currently prevent the user from being able to continue recording while viewing a video on YouTube or Vimeo, for example. Although still not possible, the new embedded YouTube feature will allow a useful work around, effectually pausing the Panopto recording and playing the YouTube video in real time – directly from YouTube. The functionality of this on the Application is still to be confirmed, and currently this is only limited to YouTube, however this does provide a useful alternative to the stop/start method currently employed. It is also useful to remind you of the BoB service (, which has an extensive archive of aired television and radio programmes that can be edited down to small clips, and inserted into your presentations – without any copyright limitations.

Relationship with Moodle: As discussed throughout, the access and rights are largely transferred directly from Moodle based upon the linkage between the two. Access to Panopto itself can be done through Moodle or directly through their Re:View Portal. The two dedicated pieces of software do work in tandem, and the current system ensures recordings are directly uploaded to the selected Moodle page. To illustrate this, access to the student assignment folders, for example, will be selectable from the list of enrolled students and staff to the module Moodle page.


Further Help/Advice:

The event was organised superbly by Sacha Goodwin, part of the AV Team. This was the first Panopto training event offered, and it is suggested that if you need any further support implementing any of these features, please submit a ticket item to AV team via and fill out a "General Inquiry".

BoB TV and Radio Workshop - Reflection

  , ,

📥  Event Review


On Thursday 11th May, Alex Morris from Learning on Screen visited the University to give a presentation on the capabilities of BoB, Learning on Screen’s Television and Radio Archive.


The session began with Alex giving a background on the development of “Learning on Screen”, the company behind BoB, and discussed the role they play in facilitating teaching across a host of UK Universities. The session then moved onto the capabilities of the BoB service, with BoB providing the ability to record television content from 65 channels at the click of a button, including a large selection of Freeview and foreign language channels to choose from. These can be selected from an archive of past BBC and selected programmes, or up to 31 days in advance of their air date. The ability to access old television and radio is not only useful for personal information purposes, and the utilisation of these recordings in teaching and learning can be innovative and compelling.

Alex then ran through the process of clip creation, allowing the condensing of key programme content into short clips and allowing the incorporation of these into teaching slides. Clips can be made from a variety of programme types including documentaries and news reports, and with copyright protection through the University, providing these clips have been created through BoB, they are useable with Re:View (Panopto) lecture recording software.

The session finished by considering some of the other key capabilities of the BoB system, including the ability to search the archive via keyword, transcript content, date and channel, as well as the formulation of academic citation for both entire programmes and clips for referencing in papers and assignments, in turn aiding the confusion surrounding media referencing.


Creating a BoB profile:

To sign up for BoB, a profile needs to be created, and verification made through your University email address. Once this has been done, the access is automated through your Single Sign On, therefore accessible with ease when at the University. You will then have full access to the BoB service, and this is available through the following link -

Further Help and Support:

For further help and support with using the BoB system, or other possibilities Learning on Screen have to offer, Alex suggested you can contact him directly on: or 020 7393 1515 and he will assist you however possible.

Once confirmed, a follow up post will be made confirming the time slots allocated to each session, and the planned schedule for the visit.



TurningPoint Lunch and Learn - Reflection

  , , , ,

📥  Event Review


On Friday 5th May, Robin Smyth from Turning Technologies visited the University to discuss the features of version 8 of TurningPoint Responseware, including numerous novel methods of promoting student participation while providing a mechanism for monitoring and reporting the progress of student learning.

The Session:

The session began with the audience asked to access the Responseware web address, or access the group via the Smart device application. The audience were then actively engaged in a demonstration of some of the key features that TurningPoint Responseware had to offer, and were to take the role of students participating, as they would in a teaching environment. Features discussed included non-competitive rankings and infographics to represent results, alongside competitive functions, including "team allocation" - allowing audience members to choose a team (in this instance Batman or Superman) to play for, "fastest responders" - giving scoring of the fastest correct responders to a question, and "most valuable players" - to show the most correct and efficient responders on each team. Different and visually appealing graphs and scoreboards were highlighted to give real time monitoring of team scores.



New features specific to TurningPoint version 8, due to be implemented across the University over the summer of 2017, were also highlighted, offering staff members the opportunity to increase awareness of the functionality ahead of the new academic year. These features included the use of Word Clouds - offering an infographic representation of keywords from responses, as well as bug fixes and general enhancements to smoothness in implementation.

The session broke for lunch where audience members had opportunities to sit down with a sandwich and coffee and discuss their personal experience in groups, as well as difficulties they had faced. This sparked discussion for the post-lunch Q&A session, and Robin fielded questions from several members about their experience using the software/hardware.

During the second part of the session, Robin further demonstrated the different techniques of implementing TurningPoint, via Powerpoint, Anywhere and Self-Paced Polling. Powerpoint Polling, the most popular style, allowed the embedding of polling questions into tradition Powerpoint slides, while Anywhere polling facilitates spontaneous and non-powerpoint based implementation (albeit the spontaneity comes at a cost of style). Self-paced polling was something the group seemed to be less aware of, with this feature allowing asynchronous administration of questions for a group. For example, setting questions with a 24 hour period to complete, and once this period is done, the poll will close and responses recorded.

The audience had opportunity to field any final questions, and the session finished promptly at 1:30pm.


The Audience:

The audience contained an array of different faculty staff members, from Computer Science to the School of Management, with opportunity to discuss their experiences in using the software in teaching and support. A pleasing observation was the different stages in the polling software lifecycle in regards to implementation across the audience members, with some new to the concept of interactive polling and investigating methods of incorporation in their teaching, while other "veterans" of the polling system usage seeking ways to clarify feature capability and gain understanding of the new system improvements. All audience members were able to offer a diverse insight into their experience and the possibilities present within their faculty.

The size of the group was near perfect, providing an environment where members were comfortable interacting and offering their experiences, answering each other's questions and interacted fluidly with both Robin and their fellow colleagues.

Next Steps and Support:

Should you wish to implement TurningPoint Responseware within your teaching, or are looking for clarification as to how to accomplish something - or even whether something is possible - there are a variety of different options for you to get the help you need.

Webinars are held often on a weekly basis on a variety of subjects, including the aforementioned Self-Paced Polling, Anywhere Polling and Powerpoint Polling, involving instructional methods to implement each of these with most impact. To access them, you will need to Click Here and select "Register" next to one you are able to attend. Once you attend the webinar, the video training will be sent to you to keep for reference.

Contact TurningTechnologies directly:
Robin suggested the best method of contact was via himself directly, either via email, at, or via telephone, on 028 9008 0182. This would allow him to answer any questions directly, and help with implementation issues while on the phone.

Other staff members:
Based upon the turn out for the session, it was clear that TurningPoint is used across a diverse range of faculties across the University. Should you know of anyone in your department using this technology, it may be as easy to ask them for help and advice in utilising this useful tool.
