Schaffhauser, D. (2009) Lecture capture is getting campuses talking Campus Technology, June 10
Another article on lecture capture (see also ‘A review of lecture capture systems’), this time with more details on the technology and costs.
I noted in the article that half the users are distance learners. I hope that this is an ‘extra’ for them, and does not constitute the main content of their courses – there are much more effective ways of providing content digitally than recording lectures, which essentially shifts convenience from learners to instructors. (It may be convenient for students to get a copy of a lecture, but ‘deconstructing’ it is much more time-consuming and frustrating than working through a well-designed distance education ‘module’).
