What is Lecture Capture
Lecture capture is technology that allows instructors to record their lectures either in or out of the classroom. It enables students to review lectures, which can improve learning and grades. Instructors can also “flip the classroom” – take the lecture portion out of the classroom, thereby freeing up in-class time for more discussion, problem solving, and/or interactive activities.
How it Works
In classroom lecture capture enables the recording of all audio and video sources used in the room (see list below). Video from a computer (Windows or Mac), laptop, or document camera connected to the podium in the room will be recorded, along with any audio from these sources. Lecture capture will also record any audio picked up by either the wireless microphone or microphone built into the podium.
Benefits of Lecture Capture
Lecture capture allows students to review content, pause and rewind in order to deepen their understanding of difficult or detailed concepts. Students can also watch course material at their own pace or review lectures in preparation for exams. Also, lecture capture provides students who miss class with a convenient way to review the lecture. Instructors can also create content in-class and out-of-class for online course development.
