Lecture Capture

5 innovative ways to use lecture capture technology

Supplemental lessons, solution examples help students and staff at Seattle Pacific increase efficiency and engagement.

As lecture capture has become more widespread, users have learned how to expand the capabilities and uses of these systems. Simply recording a full lecture live and posting it online isn’t necessarily the most effective way for students to learn, and not the most effective way to get the most out of your lecture capture investment. In fact, the term ‘lecture capture’ is misleading, as this technology can be used for much more than just capturing lectures. This web seminar focused on five innovative ways to use this technology that are employed at Seattle Pacific University.

Better Use of Lecture Capture

Recently, McGraw-Hill Higher Education issued a white paper, “The Tipping Point in Development Education” stating that adaptive learning technology in higher education can bridge remedial education gaps.

The report noted that technology-enabled developmental education programs that are designed specifically for underprepared students entering or returning to college can improve educational and other outcomes. These benefits can include increased retention and completion rates, a more accelerated and efficient process for students bound for college, and greater affordability.

Digital Treasures

Monetizing digital assets translates to revenue potential, but an institution’s leaders must weigh the challenges and risks of charging for access to captured audio, video, and images.

Alternative revenue streams are increasingly attractive to higher education leaders struggling to live in the new budgetary normal triggered by the recession. Monetizing assets such as audio, video, and images an institution already has or is continually generating through digital asset management (DAM) can be tantalizing to those managing a school’s coffers. But in the academic environment, can officials look beyond the perception that for-profit endeavors cheapen a school’s reputation?

Student success with lecture capture in the classroom spurs Lawson State to extend use to professional development and administration

Sometimes you don’t even know you need a solution until one presents itself. At least that’s how Tegrity Lecture Capture grew from a classroom product to a tool embedded in nearly every aspect of Lawson State Community College. 

The college implemented Tegrity in 2005. With 60 percent of the Birmingham, AL, college’s students holding down full- or part-time work, the school hoped to increase engagement, improve its retention level and help working students with attendance issues, notes Academic Dean Sherri Davis.
