Lecture Capturing and Other Streaming Video Applications
In this session we will discuss some of the mechanics of lecture recording and delivery: processes and pitfalls, technologies and traps, methods and migraines! But in addition to the mechanics of lecture recording we will focus our discussion on the pedagogy of podcasting. Is lecture recording an appropriate teaching/learning modality? How can we use this technology to improve the teaching/learning process and how can we help students to wean themselves from the didactic information faucet (“what’s going to be on the test?”) and instead use technology to help them develop expertise in information retrieval, information winnowing, and self directed learning.
