ALT-C 2009 Session: This Cloud has been set up to aggregate live blogs, comments, discussion and links for this session.
- Imperial College
- See video and slides of the lecture, can play, pause etc
- Early front-runners in field: University of california, berkely, purdue university, university of washington, university of western australia
- Most universities who have introduced lecture capture doing to support and enhance lecture not to replace them
- Lecture capture gives you greater control over learning - flexibility, ability to review, students with disabilities/non-native english speakers, students with family or work commitments
- Cost-effective way of developing additional resources
- Two programmes pilotted - Msc Management, MSc Allergy, the projects that lead on innovation
- Student Survey
- Is English your first language? Over 80% not for management, 42% not for allergy
- Why did you use the recording? Did the availability of the lectures change your attendance? Almost all no change.
- Normally one hour
- Use Echo 360 based on Lectopia
- Comment from audience: after few weeks reduces to 25% from experience at western australia. If make students sign in takes up lots of lecture time. Lecturers ask ‘should I be bothered?’ Found that they used the recordings selectively - didn’t use instead but as support mechanism to review
- Comment from audience: concerns about using audio-recordings as notes, reducing written note-taking. Face to face time precious - academics would prefer students don’t waste time taking notes but engage, ask questions etc.
