Weblectures and Knowledge clips


A weblecture is a recording of a presentation, lecture, seminar or workshop, that can be viewed online afterwards. Weblectures at Humanities are, in principle, recorded in the large lecture halls in the Lipsius building and in the Wijnhaven building. The International Studies lectures at Wijnhaven are recorded automatically. Lecturers from other study programmes will be contacted by ECOLe to inquire if their lectures need to be recorded. Other events (such as conferences) can also be recorded in the large lecture halls.
Have you made recordings before and do you want to reuse your weblectures? No problem! Please contact weblectures@hum.leidenuniv.nl for the links to the recordings.


In addition to recordings, it is also possible to livestream lectures in the large lecture halls, within office hours.

For all questions regarding recording, livestreaming and/or other questions you can contact weblectures@hum.leidenuniv.nl.

Knowledge clips

The faculty of Humanities is very active in the field of Flipping the classroom. A lot of knowledge clips are produced in this context. Knowledge clips are short videos, up to a maximum of 10 minutes long, in which a certain (difficult) topic is discussed. These clips are used to prepare and inform students for upcoming lectures, allowing you to delve deeper into the materials during class.

Lecturer’s tip

Notify students of when you will make the clips available to watch, as well as when you will close them again. A short timeframe increases the amount of views considerably.

Recording knowledge clips in the studio

Clips can be recorded at the office or at home, but the faculty also has its own studio with a cameraman/video technician available to support you with recordings. He can help you with the setting up, recording and editing of your clip. Ususally, knowledge clips are made for ICT&O projects, but ad hoc knowledge clips can also be made in the studio, if the space is available. Do make sure to contact ECOLe at ecole@hum.leidenuniv.nl.

Record your own knowledge clip or podcast

Are you looking to record your own knowledge clips? Use the video-toolkit to help you out in your preparation process and creation of the clips. If needed, a video camera, microphone or audio recording device can be borrowed from ECOLe: ecole@hum.leidenuniv.nl.

Note: Webcam sets for hybrid teaching can be picked up at the Lipsius reception. A reservation is not necessary.

Recording knowledge clips in a lecture hall

During the semester it is also possible to record knowledge clips in a lecture hall. Please note: this is only possible on request. Please contact weblectures@hum.leidenuniv.nl for more information.

Students recording clips

Do you want to have your students record their own clips? You can find more information in this descriptive manual for students on how to make video essays.
