Hi, I'm MD Rabbi (he/him) and I'm your VP for Education and Deputy President for the 2021/22 academic year. I am an international student from Bangladesh studying Accounting and Finance at LSBU.

I am passionate about you, your voice, your campaign.

    What's the big idea?

    Whilst we have all lost out on that crucial university experience during the pandemic, I'm sure many of us (especially 2nd years onwards) recognise the good things that have come out of this experience. Recording all our classes has been immensely useful for all students, whether or not you watch the live class, watch them later, watch them again or use them for revision. Having 24/7 access to all our classes has been a game-changer and is essential for studying in the modern-day.

    How will it benefit students?

    In terms of on-campus lectures: The university has been promising for years that lectures will be recorded and are still saying that now. We need to at least start taking concrete steps toward this happening. There is no better time than now when the campus is closed, and the lecture halls aren't being used. Even if this is expensive, the university needs to ensure this happens now. Enough is enough! As soon as lectures start taking place on campus again, they must be recorded. This is an absolute must and is required if we're going to keep up with modern universities.

    Updates

    Following early conversations around lecture capture on campus, I'm seeing many problems and no solutions. There does seem to be resistance to this kind of infrastructure on multiple levels within the group.
