Help-Me-Watch is an online web application that presents videos of lectures and tutorials held using Zoom. It was developed as a response to student feedback on their experiences with online lectures and tutorials after the arrival of COVID-19. Students highlighted that they found it challenging to remain attentive during online learning sessions because of various distractions, citing examples such as sharing space with others, general noise within the home with family members working from home or other examples from answering the door to take deliveries to dogs barking! The system supports of streaming (now downloading and playback) of videos and generates usage-based visualisations of those videos showing which part(s) other students found most interesting and worthwhile.

Students review recordings of the learning sessions

Module Review Site for Students is the site for students to review recorded lectures.
