Lecture Capture pilot – feedback so far
Feedback from academics
The five academics who had participated in the trial at the time of evaluation all felt that Lecture Capture would benefit the students if it were introduced at the University.
The academics in the pilot commented that they need support when starting to record their lectures and found some aspects quite complex, particularly the editing. The trial has also revealed some technical problems that can be sorted out if the system is implemented at the University.
Feedback from students
More than 80% of the students who responded to the survey had watched at least one of the recorded lectures. The main reason for students not watching a recorded lecture was because they didn’t feel they needed to.
Of those who had watched a recorded lecture, more than 90% had also attended the lecture in person. 93% of students responding found listening to the lectures either helpful or very helpful to their learning, and all but one would like the University to continue using Lecture Capture. Students found the recordings enabled them to review topics that they found difficult and help them to understand the material better.
Students’ quotes from survey
The Lecture Capture pilot continues until June 2014. More evaluation will be done at the end of the pilot, to help the University decide how to proceed.
