Personally, I would download lectures, open it up on iTunes and go from there. I find it much easier and faster to pause, rewind, and play etc.

But because the files are quite big, and take forever to download – some of you may have no choice but to listen to the lectures straight from lectopia.

So here are some tips and tricks to make your lectopia experience just that little bit more bearable!

Use the ‘scenes’ option

When you are on lectopia, hit the ‘scenes’ button to your right.

OOOH MAGIC!

The ‘scenes’ button sorts the lecture recording based on the individual lecture slides!

So for example if you need to re-listen to something in slide 10 – you can go straight to the section of the recording of that particular slide instead of playing around with it till you eventually find it!

Pretty cool!

Keyboard shortcuts

Press P if you need to pause/play

Press B to go back a lecture slide

Press N for the next lecture slide

I don’t know about you, but the rewind button is a necessity for me! And I can’t quite rewind on lectopia without stuffing up the entire loading thing, and waiting for it to buffer again. Most of the time it rewinds way too far back anyways.

So again, I would recommend downloading the lecture recording and play it on your computer’s media player!

I hope this helps you!

p.s. Using imgur to upload pictures on wordpress doesn’t quite work. Sad face!

  1. I know what you mean by downloading…but i find that downloading it directly to your computer at uni is WAY faster than downloading it at home. I mean you have 1gb of data to use at uni, so why not make the most out of it? :D
