The Office of Instructional Technology has been investigating a variety of solutions for capturing faculty lectures. The goal is to find a solution that is adds to the teaching and learning experience, is easy to use for both faculty and students, and is cost effective.
What is Lecture Capture and why should a faculty member consider using it?
As long as lectures have been given, students have wanted to capture them. Whether by taking notes in class, personal tape recorders, or other mean, students have demonstrated their need to preserve what they hear and see in class so that they can review it again later. Today, technology is available to assist faculty in capturing their lectures or snippets of lectures and making those available to students.
OIT's recommends and instructions
Which technology a faculty member chooses depends on a number of factors including
- how often lectures need to be captured
- how much of a lecture needs to be captured
- whether or not motion video of the subject matter or professor is needed and
- the environment in which the lecture is to be given.
