Lecture capture pilot
There is considerable demand from students for lecture capture and the University of Leicester is behind many other universities in not providing a solution. Research in other institutions has shown that providing access to lecture capture
- is particularly useful for students for whom English is not their first language
- does not have a significant effect on attendance at lectures
- enables students to
- concentrate more in lectures
- review sections that they had trouble understanding
- use the recordings when revising
Lecture capture is the process of recording lectures and other teaching materials and making them available digitally. The University is piloted and evaluated two systems: Echo360 and Panopto. Feedback was obtained from staff and students in order to plan the next steps.
The project will ran during semesters 1 and 2 of the 2013/14 academic year, ending in June 2014.
