@Mediasite by Sonic Foundry Dr. Bob van den Brand simply wants students to pay more attention in class. It’s such a small thing, really. But the impact can be huge. Engaged students get better grades and increase the pass rate for his courses.
Now that we’re coming to the end of the 2010/11 academic year, and with this being the first academic year of Panopto implementation, I felt that this would be a good time to review the server activity levels as a whole. This, not only to draw further insights into the use of Panopto, but also help to plan for the future...
Dr Bob van den Brand from Tilburg University in the Netherlands yesterday presented a fascinating webinar on “Improving student outcomes with lecture technology”. He uses the Mediasite system to capture his accountancy lectures and had devised a simple pedagogical wrapper which adds value to the recorded material, a framework he calls ‘i-Star learning’.
"Current web-based lecture technologies are capable of much more than simply recording and distributing a live lecture." Results of a university study aimed to discover what teaching staff are currently doing, and what they would like to be doing with WBLT for learning and teaching. Findings indicate that teaching staff want to innovate in their use of recordings and need to be supported to do so.
"I was converted because I realized the potential that lecture capture had to change the way that content was delivered and, therefore, change the way a large, introductory level class could be taught. It was clear to me that ...the opportunity to review lectures outside of class time enhanced student learning."
Dr. Jennifer Flatt taught for nine years in a traditional way - desks, students, the occasional PowerPoint. When lecture capture came to the University of Wisconsin-Marinette, she was intimidated at the thought of teaching on camera.
John Couperthwaite of the University of Birmingham has made available his extensive collection of 65 links to articles about the use of lecture capture on delicious, including plenty of research papers and case studies.
Universities who really use the potential of the net (like, say Open University or Athabasca University) have had to invest an awful lot of time and resources rethinking how they teach and plan courses.
Interesting set of papers from a major provider: The Event Webcasting Toolkit; 101 Academic Perspectives on What Works in Lecture Capture; Evaluating the Impact of Mediasite Lecture Capture on Retention, Recruitment & Student Satisfaction; Successful Strategic Planning for Your Lecture Capture Initiative, etc.
The uninspired label “lecture capture,” according to Janet Russell at Georgetown’s Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship fails to convey the disruptive potential of this tool.Professors can use lecture capture software to animate their markup of students’ papers, recording verbal comments and tracking the cursor as they annotate and assign a grade. Giving face-to-face feedback to students is still crucial, but “depending on how big your class is, you’re often only going to do that for one draft.” Now Russell uses Echo360 to record comments on second drafts to offers students a “high touch” experience. “They see and hear me responding to their work in a way that feels personal”...
" At the very least, I figured [lecture capture] would level the playing field and let everyone have equal access to the class lectures. What I did not anticipate was how this decision would revolutionize my approach to teaching this particular class, and to teaching in general...."
A microlecture is a short recorded audio or video presentation on a single, tightly defined topic. Microlectures are typically produced by an instructor, who might begin by drafting a rough script that includes an introduction, a list of key points to cover, and a conclusion. Public microlecture sites such as Khan Academy and TED-Ed have made the format a familiar staple of informal learning. These short lectures encourage a self-directed model of learning, allowing students to select lessons to watch and to move through them at their own pace. Microlectures are easy to integrate into the curriculum because they can be used in a variety of ways and are short enough to fit almost anywhere, and they offer an appealing option for mobile learning.
