Lecture capture auto-publishing

From the 2016 - 2017 academic session, scheduled lecture capture recordings will be automatically published to Minerva 72 hours from the recording being processed.

Auto-publishing is applied to each scheduled recording as an 'action' that will change the visibility of the recording from private to viewable.  This will make the content visible to students and staff enrolled on all the modules that are attached to the recording.

The author can manually publish the recording to Minerva within 72 hours as normal. 

The author can also edit the action to publish at a later date or remove the action from a recording.
