REC:all collection is a service of the European Erasmus project REC:all and for the next two years will curate resources associated with the new pedagogies of lecture capture. For more information on REC:all visit http://rec-all.info or http://vital-sig.ning.com/ for UK visitors.
The Approaches to Knowledge course on Arts and Sciences BASc at UCL has now finished. For this module most of the lectures were 'flipped' - what were the lessons learned?
Written a couple of years ago, but still a great post from one of University College London's flip enthusiasts.
One way to develop your screencasting proficiency is to prepare storyboards in advance.
Structured approach using storyboards with downloadable Word files.
Some companies have made a living creating a sort of “virtual classroom,” allowing members to learn at their own pace when they have the time using video tutorials. The advantages of the classroom setting stem from a one on one experience and the ability of the instructor to show the ideas and theories rather than simply explain them. Screencasting, or sharing your virtual desktop via video presentation, has exploded in popularity with the advent of podcasting, and gives you the ability to bring the classroom feel to a media presentation that can be delivered over the Internet. The medium of screencasting is readily available to everyone and with a few tools of the trade you can be ready to produce your own.
A few good tips.
"Lecture capture is a no-brainer. Above all the students want it, and I believe they will demand it in the future. It has improved my learning experience and it is an extremely valuable resource for exam revision.
Once the fears of being recorded and the number of attendees dropping at lectures fades, more universities and their academics will see lecture capture as an asset to the overall lecture experience, not a hindrance."

From video learning bytes to video courses to video uploading via mobile devices - it is all about video. As such, LMS vendors will need to make changes to their platforms.
"Here is the one thing to remember - VIDEO IS GOING TO BE HOT. In 2014, I believe it will be the year of video for consumers in e-learning, specifically with content and as a one off on that – in the LMS." We are inceasingly seeing how video drives traffic into the VLE, which allows us to be more creative with the VLE itself...
What does your blended learning look like? Is it a mash up of unrelated pieces, an unstructured smorgasbord of learning content? Is it the rather tired ‘blende…
Saw this last week; I thought it was really good, and maybe worth 30' of your time (...or just look at the PDF notes)!
"Flipped learning model for effective blended learning"
Joanna Kori, a TATA e-learning consultant, uses Kolb action learning cycle to model the components of the flipped classroom. Gives a case study of an app-enabled CPD programme, but equally relevant (I think) for the research-based, e-enabled teaching the Provost is advocating.
A refelction on what has been learned through the roll-out of UC San Francisco's lecture capture system.
Good point by John DeAngelo:"An interesting phenomenon has been happening, particularly among those instructors who do make a point of watching their own lectures: a desire to move to the "flipped classroom." "They often come back to us and say, 'I don't want to capture my class lecture. I want to structure things outside the lecture, so that I can have students watch in advance of my lecture,'"
I’ve had several people ask me recently how I create the video interviews I do with authors on Skype. In this post I lay out my workflow in eight steps.
Have seen this approach working very well...
Excellent advice - ok so we're not wasting tape these days but the more time we can save editing the better.
Many have benefited from the possibility to record the screen of their computer. Online instructors rely on this feature to make tutorials and share them

The invention of fire and the wheel – nice. But from the first cave paintings to the beginnings of logographs, and then of course the alphabet, human achievement has been tied closely with how we put our thoughts across.

VideoTwo of the hot topics in education in the last few years have been Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and the flipped classroom. I’ve been experimenting with both of them. What I’ve learned (besides being able to use the word “pedagogy” in a sentence) !
How MOOC materials can be used in F2F courses. Not as easy as you might think!
EzPeasy, the most fully-featured application for flip-teaching. Wrap your videos with questions, glossaries, links, attach files and protect with passwords, then share with a single click.
Looks quite interesting for simple video + question lessons. Cloud-based but pretty cheap.
Some screencast tools, including free ones.
"Of course, lecture capture is still the primary use for Panopto at most universities, but it was fascinating to see how video is being used in ever more inventive ways to transform teaching and learning and offer students a more engaging educational experience." Student generation, and 'sofacasting.
Useful guidance, tool list and examples

Feynman Liang has finished more than 36 online classes, putting the 21-year-old in the upper ranks of MOOC veterans. Here are his tips for picking classes.
Liang's views on video: Some online courses offer highly produced videos with graphics and animations and artfully shot sequences, while others just stick a professor in front of a camera. But don’t dismiss a whole course just because the videos don’t seem up to par. An electrical engineering course he took on Coursera didn’t have great videos, but Liang said it was on of the best classes he’s taken online. So, what’s a better way to evaluate a class early on? Test out a class for a couple of weeks to get a sense of the professor’s personality and commitment level. Assignments and quizzes that just ask you to recall material covered in the video might indicate that the professor is doing the online thing because of a university initiative, not a real personal interest, while more thought-provoking questions and problem sets could show that the teacher is really invested, Liang said.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so a video must be priceless – and there are times when a video is more convenient and effective than simple words. Ever find yourself in that kind of position?
Includes a new one to me, Open Broadcaster Software a video streaming tool so others can view your screen in real-time. However, OBS has the option to do a “local stream,” which takes your “stream” and outputs it into a video file instead.

Swivl is the first and only iPhone accessory that lets you capture hands free video, following your every move and with a wireless microphone, your every word.
Many of our lecturers are looking for 'informal' video capture of small groups, away from our lecture capture systems. This looks promising....
Communicating visually is one of the most effective ways to explain complex concepts and relationships, both internally with your teammates and externally with your clients.
