1 The Proof is In… Why Technology Enhances Teaching and Learning Patty Kahn David Radosevich Courtney Volpe 2006 EDUCAUSE Mid-Atlantic Conference
2 Is This How You Feel When Working With Technology?
3 3 Major Challenges Faced By Faculty How Do I? 1.Integrate technology into the teaching and learning environment 2.Promote ways that learning can continue outside the classroom 3.Find an easy to use technology
4 Integrates technology into the teaching and learning environment Traditional pedagogy Face-to-face learning environment Instructor-focused yet increased student involvement Can be used in an online environment
5 Promote ways that learning can continue outside the classroom Students revisit lecture “snipits” seeing and hearing what was taught Students can visit presentation prior to class so the instructor can start the lecture with a thought provoking questions Students can ask the instructor questions directly on the recorded lecture Students can record their own lectures to share with other learners
6 Find an easy to use technology Ease of use for instructor Ease of use for student Accessed anywhere anytime Cross platform
7 One Solution to Three Challenges RecordPlaybackCollaborate
8 Other Benefits Continue learning even if class gets cancelled Student out ill and misses a class Reinforce lecture when the class is over Promote online discussion and collaboration Usage monitoring QA searching
9 A Faculty Perspective
10 Why Do I Use Lecture123? Easy to learn and use Provides feedback on own teaching style Engages students in deeper processing of information Better class management
11 Classes I Teach Using Lecture123 Psychology (grad & undergrad) –Theories of Personality –Industrial/Organizational –Tests & Measurements –Research Methods Business (MBA & undergrad) –Organizational Behavior –Human Resources –Principles of Management PSYC510_01FA05: Behavioral Science PSYC332_SP05: Carver Lecture
12 Student Outcomes of Lecture123 Out of a 7-point likert scale (1 = strongly disagree; 7 = strongly agree) students responded –Expectancy that I can successfully use the technology (Average = 6.03) –Belief that Lecture123 will be instrumental in helping me meet my class goal (Average = 5.37) –Satisfaction with Lecture123 (Average = 6.02)
13 Performance Outcomes 1 st Semester Average Without Lecture123 2 nd Semester Average With Lecture123 Personality Psychology Organizational Behavior Human Resources

15 A Student Perspective
16 Cognitive Resources Recording Information Comprehension of Information ?
17 Learning Styles Visual Audio Kinesthetic
18 “Lecture123 eliminates the need of constant writing and note taking in the classroom” “I have ADHD, so I miss part of some lectures when I am unable to concentrate for part of the lecture. It is a very big relief for the first time in my life to know that the material I missed is available at my fingertips for review, to fill in the gaps from class. I cried when I used this. Thank you!“ Student Comments
19 Student Comments Continued "As a returning student I cannot tell you how helpful the recording software has been. I have used the tool to review lessons, assist me in homework questions, and in preparing for exams. Additionally, I found the tool to be a great compliment to Blackboard's functionality. For a student like myself who holds a demanding full-time job, this new MSU has allowed me to keep up with the pace of the class.”
20 Let’s See Lecture123 In Action!
21 Promotes learning to occur both inside and outside the classroom But remember… The content of the course should always drive the technology and not vice versa In Closing…..
