1 Enhancing Lectures Through Automated Capture: more a way of life than simply capturing lectures David Morris: June Echo360 Conference: June 2009

2 Enhancing Lectures Through Automated Capture Echo360 Conference: June

3  JISC funded  £300k  1 October 2008 to 31 March 2010  Under the “Institutional Exemplars” programme  One of a raft of projects brought together under the broad banner of “institutional exemplars” Echo360 Conference: June

4  Exploring the application, implementation and affordances of “new” technologies at an institutional level  Emphasis on organisational change, policies, strategies etc  One stage beyond small scale piloting (so not proof of concept, we have done that)  Judged not by our “success” per se but by what others can learn from the project (so no KPIs of lectures captured or watched or.....)  Bulk of the money comes from the (JISC) Learning and Teaching Committee so.... Echo360 Conference: June

5  “Business facing”  Single city-centre campus  Wide range of partners (Overseas HE institutions, corporates, schools and colleges)  17,000 students  Four faculties  Relatively little pure online activity  Large proportion of non-native English speakers 5Echo360 Conference: June 2009

6  Unbundling the VLE  CUBA – the blogging environment  CURVE – the institutional repository  OCEP – open educational resources for employability 6Echo360 Conference: June 2009

8  Have been around for a long time  Are still around  Have evolved over time  Occur in a wide variety of forms  Are global  Are likely to stay around for a bit longer yet  Are easily forgotten when there are more exciting things around 8

9  Groups in the university (lecture theatre managers; IT services; dispersed faculty; learning and teaching fraternity; e-learning units; cost-conscious administrators....)  Organisational problems (repeat lectures; students who do not/cannot turn up; faculty who do not/cannot turn up; lack of space....)  Improving learning and teaching (revision; international students; making good use of “stars” ) 9Echo360 Conference: June 2009

11  Not about content  Increasing access  Making lectures available for revision, filling in gaps, helping students whose first language is not English etc  Running blogs or other linked environments  Helping staff improve lecturing style  Exploring and recognising the differences between captured and live lectures  Finding out what students do with lectures Echo360 Conference: June

12  Technology problems  IPR (both ways!)  Lousy lectures are lousy lectures  Who makes the decisions?  Who makes policy?  Will lecturers want to play?  Water cooler gossip  It’s this on top of everything else  Workload models  Why bother with live lectures? Echo360 Conference: June

14 UTILITY RESOURCE  Warts and all  Throwaway  Private  Supplementary  Support value  Examples: revision; emergency planning  Higher production values  Legal/QA cautions  Reusable  Repurposable  Shareable  Pedagogic insertion  Examples: learning objects; cohort management; distance learning; active learning (wrappers) 14Echo360 Conference: June 2009
