How can we bring the lectures from our classrooms to our students’ homes? One possible solution is to use the smart pen. The presentation will show how to record such pencast lectures, how to upload them to the portal or embed them in any classroom management system like Etudes, and the possibility to have the lectures transformed to videos with close captions.
