What is Lecture Capture?
The College of Business has invested in a state-of-the-art Lecture Capture system. Lecture capture automates the recording of your voice, screen and document camera, and combines this with a camera feed of you in your class.
The lecture capture system is available in the following classrooms:
- N111 (Lecture Theatre 1)
- Seminar Room 1 (Smurfit Exec)
- Seminar Room 4 (Smurfit Exec)
If you are teaching in any of these classrooms and you would like to schedule lecture capture to record your classes, then you should fill out the following site-specific forms:
What to expectWhat to expect
Once you have filled out the form the classes will be scheduled by one of the team members, and you will receive an email when this is complete. The LC system will automatically record your class, create a video (with transcription) and upload it to your personal channel on the media server. You will receive a system email when this is complete and you can then share the recording within your Brightspace module.
You are welcome to contact the Business eLearning team (business.eLearning@ucd.ie) for additional assistance. While we have the ability to live broadcast, where remote students can attend synchronously, capacity limits apply to this. Offering live broadcast of your lectures may give students an expectation that you are offering a hybrid-classroom delivery, and may discourage their attendance to classes.
Benefits of Lecture CaptureBenefits of Lecture Capture
Over the years students have responded very positively to having access to lecture recordings. Both our own, and research in higher education, shows that students benefit from being able to listen back to lectures more than once. Students like the ability to replay recordings at different speeds, search the transcript for key terms, and to optimise the different views available such as document camera or Powerpoint presentations. It also allows a way to enhance the learning experience for all students, including students where English is not their first language, or students with different accessibility requirements.
As we return to our classrooms, the lecture capture technology will allow students to enjoy one of the benefits from last year’s online learning experience: the ability to replay their online classes.
We encourage staff to record their lectures and provide these to students as an asynchronous learning resource. If you wish to offer live broadcast with the intention of including the remote learner and creating a truly hybrid class then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further, as we would be happy to pilot this with you.
