The following news item was included in the University of Bath Update for the 28 January 2011:

‘Lecture capture’ at Bath cited as example of good practice InAVate
An article on an AV website has featured Bath’s use of Panopto for recording lectures and delivering the digital content to students remotely. Simon Hillier (Deputy AV Manager) talks about why we chose that particular software-based product.

The article includes three case studies on uses of lecture capture systems. One comment that struck my eye:

Couperthwaite (manager of the Educational Technology Team at the University of Birmingham) likes Echo360 because it is more secure than software-based products because the content stays on the local server. This protects the University’s copyright and controls students’ access to the right material.

Interesting to see that content control is highlighted as an important aspect. An advantage of data lock-in?
