A literature review is a comprehensive summary of previous research on a topic. The literature review surveys scholarly articles, books, and other sources relevant to a particular area of research. The review should enumerate, describe, summarize, objectively evaluate and clarify this previous research. It should give a theoretical base for the research and help you (the author) determine the nature of your research. The literature review acknowledges the work of previous researchers, and in so doing, assures the reader that your work has been well conceived. It is assumed that by mentioning a previous work in the field of study, that the author has read, evaluated, and assimiliated that work into the work at hand.
A literature review creates a “landscape” for the reader, giving her or him a full understanding of the developments in the field. This landscape informs the reader that the author has indeed assimilated all (or the vast majority of) previous, significant works in the field into her or his research.
ReVIEW is Loughborough University’s lecture capture system. It allows you to record a teaching session, and make the recording available for students to view online through the LEARN platform.
ReVIEW allows for the simultaneous capture of audio, video and any computer application (including Microsoft PowerPoint) although by default, the recording includes only what is shown on the projector screen, and your voice. During a ReVIEW session, you have the option to pause the recording at any time if content is being explored which is not suitable to be captured. You also have the option to edit the video after the session, before the recording is made available to students.

In the spring 2019 semester, campus surveys were administered to faculty and students about lecture capture to help inform the committee:
In January 2019, the Provost approved a Lecture Capture Review process. A committee was formed with representatives from stakeholders, including every College, the Library, Walker Center for Teaching and Learning, and Information Technology. A subcommittee focusing on lecture capture policy was also formed.
The object of this lecture is to present an account of a technological development which has taken place within the last twenty years, from very simple beginnings founded largely on the pioneer high-pressure work of the late P. W. Bridgman, to a metal-forming process of considerable industrial interest. Extrusion, defined as the operation of producing rods, tubes and various complex sections by forcing a billet of metal through a suitable die with a ram, is a comparative newcomer among the industrial methods whereby metals are wrought into useful forms. It was first used to manufacture lead pipes, in the early eighteenth century, and for lead sheathing of electric cables about seventy years ago. The inventive genius of Alexander Dick, whose first patent was taken out in 1894, led to the use of hot extrusion for copper and its alloys and to the design of large machines with high throughput. Extrusion of steel has attained significance only within the past fifteen years.
