Lecture Capture

The Secret to Campus-Wide Lecture Capture – How University of Leeds Did It

Best practices from the largest automated lecture capture implementation in the world

No one in the world does automated lecture capture bigger or better than the University of Leeds. Launched in the fall of 2014, the university successfully deployed more than 250 rooms at once. In the first four months alone, they created 16,500 videos that were viewed 185,000 times – and those numbers have been multiplying ever since. The initiative has catapulted Leeds – chartered in 1904 – into a modern, digital campus, and has had immediate positive impact on teaching and learning. In this web seminar, originally broadcast on June 23, 2015, Neil Morris, the Director of Digital Learning at Leeds, described the project, from planning to practice, and how the institution launched the world’s largest automated lecture capture initiative with Mediasite as the foundation.

How Bloomsburg University Achieved Campus-Wide Video Capture

The right video technology can create a searchable video archive, rich lecture-capture content and enable long-distance learning

Faculty and students at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania have been using Mediasite technology for six years to record lectures for flipped instruction, classroom projects and special guests. The events are recorded and automatically fed into a video management and creation platform, My Mediasite. Some classrooms are equipped with multiple cameras to capture a fully immersive, multi-angle video experience to deepen engagement, whether the video is live or on-demand.

Lecture capture: Privacy, please

Colleges work to create policies and guidelines for instructors

While the benefits of lecture capture and the flipped classroom model have caught widespread attention in higher ed, it is crucial to note its risks—particularly in the area of privacy and copyright violations.

How to coach for distance learning and lecture capture

For an increasing number of faculty members, class prep has gone high tech. It’s not about simply reviewing notes and planning course exercises. It also involves stepping in front of a video camera. Whether it’s for distance learning programs or flipped classrooms, colleges and universities now need faculty who are able and willing to teach on camera.

Following are 10 ways to increase the odds of engaging and connecting with students through video.

Accessibility from a distance in higher education

Today’s digital learning platforms come with varying degrees of accessibility for students with disabilities

The technological revolution sweeping higher education may not be carrying all students with it equally. MOOCs, lecture capture, and other digital platforms are being designed with varying degrees of accessibility for students with mobility restrictions, hearing and visual impairments, and learning disabilities.

Accessibility features embedded in lecture capture

Lecture capture platforms can accommodate human-generated closed captions, and are compatible with screen-reading software

Unlike MOOCs, lecture capture platforms are used widely in for-credit courses. Providers of the technology have built in many accessibility features in the past several years.

Lecture capture platforms designed by Echo360, Panopto, and Sonic Foundry, for instance, can all accommodate human-generated closed captions, and are compatible with screen-reading software used by students with visual impairments. Students who cannot use a mouse can use keyboard commands to navigate the platforms.

Preparing Your Campus for the Future of Academic Video

Academic video will soon become an integral part of the higher ed learning experience

“Generation C” is demanding video in all aspects of their lives, including in their learning experiences. Universities ought to harness the power of academic video not only to meet these expectations, but to realize the power of lecture capture, personalized education, and flipped classrooms. In this web seminar hosted by Sonic Foundry vice president Sean Brown and originally presented on August 20, 2013, JD Solomon of University Business presented some findings from a new white paper about how academic video is at a tipping point and what its future looks like.
