  • Please cite as Sloman, L. (2013). Lecture capture research project: Project overview [PowerPoint slides]. Retrieved from…
  • The project focused just on lectures delivered in the Greenwood Theatre – used for core teaching to large student groups: Common Year 1 for 425 Biomedical Science students on various programs Phase 1 & 2 Medicine for 859 medical students (across 2 years)
  • Lectures in the Greenwood have been recorded for two academic years so far: Initially opt-in pilot, now opt-out Students are paid to check the quality and remove any private questions student ask at the end. A link is also sent to the lecturer in case they want to edit itRecordings usually available to students within a week after lecture.This year 416 of 613 lectures recorded = 68% (some opt-out, some technical problems, supplemented with some of last year’s recordings)
  • Students access the recordings via these links on the VLE,Virtual Campus (a bespoke VLE system). Often they have a choice of 3 formats:Real media: video, screen capture & audioVodcast: screen capture & audio (mp4)Podcast: audio only (mp3)
  • Scene feature (right hand side) allows viewer to scroll ahead/behind and jump directly to specific slidesWindows can be resized or closed
  • Left-hand visual input from screen – whether powerpoint, video or document camera
  • Highly competitive entry as expected for London-based medical degree. Also high non-academic expectations.Student body very multicultural. Foreign students have very strong English language skills. High proportion of graduate students (mostly in 20s)Entry to EMDP program may relax to BBB with interview for students at eligible non-selective state schools in London , Kent and Medway. Phase 1 & 2 covered at a slower pace, with greater support.
  • Equally multicultural with many graduate students.
  • The project was funded by the King’s Learning Institute’s Technology Enhanced Learning fund, based on a proposal by Ron Jacob and with guidance from a committee of staff & students.
  • 2 strengths of research design: time to use responses from lecturers to shape questions to students and vice versa comparison of self-report and behavioural data (server logs)NB server log data anonymous & students informed: only 1 opted out.(a) Lecturer mini-poll: 2 questions emailed to lecturers; 84 (66%) responded (b) Student server logs: 856 medical students (1 opted out) (c) Student pop-up survey: 1 question answered by 73% medical students on at least one occasion(d) Lecturer focus groups: 16 lecturers – divided into 9 enthusiastic/neutral & 7 unenthusiastic/neutral (e) Student term-time survey: 10-20min survey completed by 25% students(f) Student focus groups: 7 Yr2 medics (session with 3 Yr1 biomedical science students discounted)(g) Lecturer survey: completed by 31% lecturers (2 of which withheld data from external sharing)(h) Student post-exam survey: 5-10min survey completed by 20% students
