Explore Lecture Capture

EdTechRobyn Reese

Lecture Capture is becoming a ubiquitous educational technology in higher education because it allows students to have the flexible experience that they expect in a blended or fully online class. Lecture capture can take on a number of forms, and serve several purposes depending upon the pedagogical needs of the professor.  It can be used to record lectures for students who may miss class or need a review, or can be provided in advance of class meetings to front load content that may be needed for a lab or experiential exercise.  It may involve a classic, performative lecture led by a professor, or may simply be a demonstration of a crucial skill or technique that requires repetition for retention.

The Office of the Provost asked the Academic Technology department to investigate the use of lecture capture at FSCJ, for the launching of a pilot project in the Fall of 2017.  The presentation below is a summary of the team's findings, with information about how professors and lecturers can become involved, or obtain more information.
