"The flipped classroom is a useful technique that has moved lectures out of the class, and onto digital media. In doing so, teachers can drastically increase interaction time with their students... A number of tools are available that can be used to record lectures, including YouTube, Edmodo, Schoology, and Moodle. No matter what tool you’re using, recording and uploading lectures, then hosting them for years to come has never been easier."
