This week's round-up focuses on lecture capture technology.
- Learning about Lecture Capture Technology (EmergingEdTech)
"The use of Lecture Capture is expanding in both Higher Ed and K-12. What kinds of tools and technologies are being used to capture and rebroadcast lecture content?"
- EDUCAUSE Lecture Capture Resources (EDUCAUSE)
"Lecture Capture is increasingly becoming an important tool for faculty and students. It offers students a chance to review a missed class or an opportunity to review particularly difficult topics or detailed procedures. For faculty the use of lecture capture may lead to online course development. Many schools create home grown systems, but there are also commerical options."
- Podcasts: enhancing or replacing normal lectures? (Times Higher Education)
"Online lectures are no substitute for face-to-face contact," argues the UK's University and College Union.
- Lecture Capture Helps Riverside Meet Nursing Demand (Campus Technology)
"American colleges are benefitting immensely from increased enrollments in professional programs, especially those that promise financial stability, like nursing. But there can be too much of a good thing. For example, what do you do when 500 applicants are competing for 60 seats in your two-year nursing program? That's just what happened at Southern California's Riverside Community College. Administrators there didn't just want to turn those students away. Instead, they scrambled their technology leaders and launched a distance learning program--one that's built around lecture capture--to meet the demand."
- Echo360 Announces 2nd Annual Grants Program for Lecture Capture Research (Marketwire.com)
"Echo360, higher education's first choice for reliving the classroom experience on demand, today announced it is accepting applications for the 2010 Echo360 Research Grants Program. Now in its second year, it is the only international research program that provides financial support for institutions to quantify the impact of lecture capture on teaching and learning."
- Lecture & Lecture Capture (Online Learning, Univ. of Mary Washington)
"Yesterday, I gave a presentation on lecture and lecture capture options at the 2010 Annual Conference of the Association of Collegiate Computing Services of Virginia (ACCSVA).My presentation was subtitled, Emerging Technology vs. Institutional Memory."
- College 2.0: More Professors Could Share Lectures Online. But Should They? (Chronicle of Higher Education)
"There are good reasons to press the 'record' button, but uploading to the Internet might desecrate the classroom"
- Some Participants Criticize Format of Blockbuster Ed-Tech Conference (Chronicle of Higher Education)
"The TEDxNYED Conference that took place here on Saturday was like the Lollapalooza festival for education technologists. [...] In the blogging frenzy that followed the blockbuster conference, [the] constrained, no-questions-from-the-audience format seems to have generated as much online commentary as the speakers' ideas."
