Lecture capture technology allows lecturers to record a lecture and provide this digital recording to students, usually through the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Blackboard and/or Brightspace. Lecture Capture technology is also effective in a promotional capacity, recording and/or live streaming one-off guest and keynote lectures, career talks and high profile College events.
Benefits of recording lectures
- Closing the knowledge gap - Providing students with the ability to re-watch and reflect on a lecture helping them to identify and act upon knowledge gaps
- Catering to differing learning styles and abilities - Recording your teaching can support a range of different learning preferences and abilities such as students with English as a second language and students with hearing impairments
- Enabling broader approaches - Encourage independent and self-regulated learning by delivering some content prior to a lecture. This approach opens up the possibility of using contact time less for delivery of content, and more for increased peer interaction
- Supporting accessible content - Students can play, pause, rewind and review a recording, whilst engaging with the content on a range of desktop and mobile devices
- Flexible learning - On demand access to learning materials
- Analytics - Insight into how students are engaging with the recordings can help lecturers identify common student pain points
Example use cases for Lecture Capture include:
- Exam revision and assignment guidelines
- In class student group presentations
- Guest speakers / Keynote presentations
- Targeted Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs) content for difficult concepts and identified roadblocks
- College of Business events such as online open days and orientation
