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.
Ready or not, schools are being forced to offer online or hybrid classes. AV Specialist Michael David Leiboff shares five tips to help colleges and universities prepare their classrooms for the lecture capture needs of today and tomorrow.
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.
In REC:all we are currentlt developing some infographics for the project and are impressed by the range of (free) tools on offer.
Our results show that students use recorded lectures as a replacement for missed lectures and for study tasks, like preparing for an exam. The quality of the actual lectures appears not to influence the use of the recorded lectures. Recorded lectures for courses that only use the blackboard are viewed less often.
Can online lecture recordings and physical attendance at lectures could be considered perfect substitutes? Based on the results here, the answer appears to be that they are not, highlighting the fact that lecture recordings are most beneficial when used for their original intention - as a complement to lectures.
Often called Whiteboard animation or Fast Drawing, VideoScribe replicates a stop-motion capture style of infographic drawing.
Just saw an excellent example of this....can't wait to try it out!
Two distinct sets of students come to class and review the lectures online. One, as you might expect, is the very, very motivated students who want to do absolutely well, and will do everything they can. The other group is non-native speakers of English. They find they can’t do without being there in class, but they do not come out of the class understanding the lecture fully all the time, and so their ability to review the recorded lecture is critical.
Another very interesting result: If you show students, who aren’t necessarily achieving the results they’d like, that other students are increasing their achievement based on some change—in this case by rewinding the lecture, using lecture-capture—then the students who want to do that are likely to follow them.
Refection on Paul Pintrich's notion of self-regulated learning. "What Pintrich has to say about student learning goes right to the heart of why I chose to experiment with the flipped classroom, and indeed I think he really speaks to the purpose of higher education in general."
A variety of cloud resources can help teachers who have (or are planning to) reverse the traditional learning sequence.
Very good collection of resources
I know this statement sounds heretical in the realms of education, but I think this is something we should rethink, especially since it is so widely taught to pre-service teachers. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. It certainly identifies the different levels of complexity. But its organizing framework is dead wrong. Here’s why.
A development of the 'flipped classroom' idea - learning through creating.
If you need to create an Infographic, PowerPoint might not be the most obvious choice. That being said, PowerPoint is likely on your office computer right now. Additionally, PowerPoint is often underutilized as a design platform and is surprisingly agile.
Mediasite's countdown of the most popular webinars of 2012.
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
Something that is trivially easy in Windows turns out to be more difficult than you'd imagine in iOS...
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.
Another interesting collection of graphic representation tools.
Possible idea for Junior Secondary HPE theory tasks?
A collection of 9 posts that provide tips and tricks to help you get the most out of the audio & video you use in your elearning courses.
How can we better enhance the user experience of using recorded lectures? Some data from paper asking "Reasons why students are not using recorded lectures?" and thoughts on simple ways of how we can overcome these challenges.
"Try it! You might like it!" is not a sufficient reason for initiating flipped instruction. What are the questions educators should be asking in order to ensure the best outcomes for students?
Yes. I can put your PowerPoint slides online. Big deal. Listen up. Getting content online is not e-learning’s greatest benefit. Consider what happens once you place content first, which is what you’re doing with your PowerPoint.
You’re saying, “Content is the most important thing.”
You’re telling learners what’s important (right and wrong) without them discovering it for themselves.
Very practical advice.
Mostly for schools and some quite familiar, but some new ones to me at least - Capzles, Creaza, Educreations and Planboard. My wife, a secondary school swears by Quizlet for her Spanish students.
We all learn to write in school, but video production is not standard curriculum. This blog post gives you screencasting & interview tips.
If you attended a university educator prep program, you’ve likely seen Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy. At the bottom of the pyramid, the most basic skill is remembering, built upon that is understanding, then applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating.
Interesting and insightful critique of the 'start at the bottom of the Bloom hierarchy' notion - Phillips argues that through creating we remember, understand and of course apply knowledge.

On Your Mark, Get Set, FLIP! Are you thinking about flipping your classroom? There are lots of different, interesting ways to flip a class. One popular, entry-level approach to flipped teaching isto deliver direct instruction (i.e. lectures) outside of class, using pre-recorded videos covering content. Instructors then spend class time on activities that students would normally do at home, such as homework problems. Flipped experts Bergmann and Sams call this the “flipped 101″ approach,
