® Lecture Capture: More than Just Capturing Lectures Bill King
What is Lecture Capture? Lecture Capture is the use of a set of technologies to capture and then enable time-shifted and place-shifted viewing of the Lecture Content.
Lecture Capture is Not New: Past Capture Approaches Note Taking Video capture Personal audio capture Audio podcasting PPT+audio / Camtasia / Impatica / Captivate PC-based Capture Appliance-based Capture
Why is Technology-based Lecture Capture exploding now? Technically feasible. Capture Technology Audio/Video Convergence Processor Speed Memory Storage Bandwidth The Internet
Why is Technology-based Lecture Capture exploding now? Students need it. By the time today’s students go to college they will: Have sent 15k text messages Have played 10k hours of videogames Do not have the discipline to read books Demonstrate different brain wave patterns of discrimination Consume technology Collaborate differently Educause Study: Educating the Net Generation Mobility is taken for granted Attention spans are short and interrupt-driven “Just in time learning” replacing “Just in case learning” Graphics and “high resolution” are minimal standards
Does Lecture Capture Help Students? UMASS Lowell eliminates bi-modal grade patterns – 10% reduction in Ds, Fs and Ws in feeder calc course University of Western Australia – 58% respondents with learning disabilities use Lectopia because they are ‘unable to take notes’ – 64% of students with any disability said class capture was “essential” Boston University – Strong positive feedback from students, including quotes like: – My study group uses the site when we don’t remember exactly what the professor said and we can go right to the part he/she talked about and double check that Central Wyoming College – 6.5% increase in exam scores with podcasting
Other Types of Campus Challenges Campuses are competing for students: recruit, retain, matriculate Student Athletes, including NCAA compliance ESL students and teachers: language fluency Special Ed needs (including 508) “Non-Traditional” students are now traditional! (working students) Hybrid and Distance Education Moving beyond Lectures!
New Types of Capture Class (not just Lecture) Capture – the use of a set of technologies to capture the audio and visual elements of class time, to enable time shifted and place shifted viewing. Labs, discussion, student presentations – all of it! Personal Capture – the use of personal computers like laptops to capture rich media (audio, video, materials) whenever and wherever the professor might be. To create and easily publish “learning objects.” Other Media Upload – (new in December) the ability to upload other video files for publishing and management.
Moving BEYOND lectures Classic: Capturing class time for review Repurpose for hybrid and Distance Education Capture class time for assigned reading, so you can do OTHER things in class Inverted Classroom Use personal capture to build learning objects, remedial work, and use it for you to catch up on lost time Use external media upload to support field and lab work, or to capture chalk talk
Faculty Issues I’m nervous – Won’t my students stop coming to class? – Isn’t the institution trying to take away my job? – What exactly is intellectual property, anyway? – Does this mean I have to dress better to class?
You HAVE to do this! You HAVE to do this – Your students are going virtual – If you can be replaced by a talking head, it’s not “if” but “when.” ADD MORE VALUE! – Be careful with intellectual property, but GET YOUR OWN BRAND OUT NOW! – Figure out how you can use these tools to be part of where education is going, not where it’s been.
Summary Lecture Capture has been going on for 1000s of years The technology change has accelerated, and so hasn’t lecture capture We can now capture lectures and play them back 24X7 But, we can do so much more. We need to think more broadly than just “lecture” capture You have this ability today (and with the new version coming out)
