iLectures - D ESIGNING AND DEVELOPING INTERACTIVE LECTURES USING CLOUD - BASED BROADCASTING SOLUTIONS John Busch QUB Belfast School of EEECS
Context - CSC2024 Web Tech & Programming Web Programming Software Development PHP(MySQL) ASP.NET (MSSQL) Mixed Cohort
Traditional Lectures – should contain more active learning rather than passive learning Programming Hard skill-base
Interactive Lecture– developed term Large lab Tutor Demonstrations Students replicated actions Screenleap.com
What I learnt – students loved the approach but… Playback option Other students Framerate problems Mic & speakers Firefighting Tutor too fast
Playback Delivery via browser Better Framerate (60fps) Digital audio On/Off Campus Free Improve? – use a cloud-based broadcasting (screen-casting) approach
iLecture – built web UI to host live broadcasting stream
iLecture – Access on of off campus
iLecture – BROADCAST - passive
iLecture – BROADCAST - active
iLecture – communication Text-based, AJAX Student respond to queries Student identity Peer support
iLecture – PLAYBACK- passive
iLecture – PLAYBACK- active
iLecture – issues Only one session where students experience streaming problems Not automated (recording/hosting) Some lag (10 – 30 seconds) Lots of firefighting comments Students find it difficult to keep-up
iLecture – benefits viewed off-campus Students viewed same day but after live broadcast No plugins for PLAYBACK Revision support Record of student activity (module) Learning by doing Increased attendance compared to traditional lecture
iLecture – early evaluation Do the interactive lectures enhance my learning experience?
iLecture – early evaluation Have you any issues with the ilecture experience?
iLecture – early evaluation What are the most positive learning features of the iLecture.
iLecture – early evaluation Do you think you would have done better in 'project01' if the traditional lectures were only used?
iLecture – early evaluation Did you view the live iLecture broadcast off-campus (e.g. at home) ?
