  • The concept of lecture capture is certainly nothing new. Faculty and institutions have been using various methods of recording classroom activity for years.
  • As I said, the concept and practice of “lecture capture” has been around for decades. But it’s a new breed of advanced tools that have emerged in the past 10 years that have given rise to talk about institutions implementing a “lecture capture” system. These tools are similar to screencasting tools, but are pumped up with more features and automated processes that make the recording, processing and publishing aspects a lot easier for instructors. For some, the instructor simply hits a record button when beginning their class and a stop button at the end. For others, where recordings are scheduled by facilities, the instructor does absolutely nothing. In either case, when class ends the recording is automatically uploaded to a server which adds institution branding and converts the recording into a format that students can easily access online. The system then published the recording to the location of the instructors’ choosing. This could be a course website, Blackboard, screencast.com, etc. It may even send students a notification that a new recording is available.
