With more institutions embracing lecture capture technology, it is increasingly a familiar and everyday part of campus life. Automated scheduling facilitates consistent and reliable recording to simplify lecture capture for instructors. Many institutions are integrating new learning modalities using lecture capture; however, lecture capture offers some learning options that instructors and administrators may not have considered.

Saving and Sharing Guest and Expert Lectures

Many departments across university campuses host a variety of guest lectures or presentations, and courses may incorporate guest or expert lecturers from time-to-time. These conferences, presentations, and special lectures are often an investment of time and money. Guest speakers often provide the opportunity to learn from professionals in the field, or to gain an improved understanding of contemporary research. 

Record Presentations

Institutions can easily use their lecture capture systems to record presentations at  conferences and special events. Recordings can be shared with students and staff, or the general public. 

prepare special content

When a speaker is on-campus for a speaking event, it may be possible to have the speaker record additional content, including question-and-answer sessions or even special presentations to use in classes. 

Save and Share

Traditionally, speaker presentations are only available to students and staff able to attend. With lecture capture technology, speakers become available to all students and staff, both today and in the future.

Facilitating Language Learning

While lecture capture is a valuable tool for online learning, for flipped classroom structures, and for review and study, it is also an ideal way for students to practice language learning. Hearing the language spoken is a key part of the language learning process. 

  • Record conversations in the language for students. Even beginning students can benefit from listening to the language. 
  • Enable downloads of audio podcasts; this is a convenient way for students to listen to the language. 
  • Support students in creating their own language recordings. This facilitates interaction, and can increase student confidence in their own skills.

    Encouraging Student Production

    Lecture capture technology can also enable students to record assignments and share with the instructor or the course. This offers a creative alternative to traditional assignments, and can provide students with practice presenting in front of an audience. Video recording allows students to integrate presentation media, like a PowerPoint presentation or even hands-on visual aids directly into a recording. 

While formal assignments are one option, the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform also enables video responses within the Real-time Feed. For many students, offering varied options for learning and interaction can provide better understanding, retention and academic results.
