LessonVU: Effective lesson observation

LessonVU 2018-07-10T11:20:13+00:00

LessonVU is a non-intrusive classroom observation system that is controlled by teachers. Its unique technology allows for the complete recording of 360-degree video and audio, giving you a comprehensive view of the entire lesson.

Perfect picture
Video is captured using a high definition 360-degree fisheye camera. The recording is then converted using our proprietary software into a more traditional view. The simple, intuitive controls let you review, analyse and reflect on the key aspects of your lesson.

Personalised recording
As LessonVU is set to be always on, you’ll have peace of mind knowing every aspect of a lesson will be recorded. It gives teachers a safe, judgement-free and retrospective review of the whole lesson without the need to pre-plan recording.

LessonVU: Unique features

teacher ownership

LessonVU is for the sole benefit of the teacher and their mentors and, as such, access is controlled by the teacher.

Capture Everything

Live and on demand, inquisitive 360-degree review of an entire classroom scene is possible thanks to the unique high-resolution fisheye camera at the centre of the solution.

Personalised Recording

The option to have the system continually recording allows easy review and analysis of all lessons. Similarly, you can turn off the camera and audio in an instant if required.

Discrete not hidden

Non-invasive capturing of the classroom is key to removing the effect visual monitoring has on the teacher and student behaviour.

Software package:

the intuitive interface is accessed via web browser to present all your video securely in one place. The software is designed from the ground up with teachers in mind; the fisheye image can be fully manipulated to save specific views of the classroom either in live mode or from recorded footage. Multiple views can be configured to allow the comparison of different areas of the classroom. Security access is specific for different people, in different rooms, at different times, and has a simple to use clip creation tool to share sections of video with others either locally or via the cloud.

LessonVU Cloud functionality

Cloud Functionality:

cloud features are optional and at the control of both the teacher and the admin. All video can be kept on the Gateway, with access only from within the building, or on the LessonVU cloud, to access specific sections of video from another location or share clips with external people, such as mentors. Cloud storage capacity can be used to free up space on the Gateway, retain videos longer and build up collections of lessons or even full syllabus archives.

  • Create folders and subfolders to store key moments, keeping a review library arranged and organised
  • Set up and save several specific views if required
