    • Capture system (Cam, Mic, and recorder) captures you session and/or makes a live session.

    • Recorder FTPs the session to the server

    • Session will be published

    • Students can start viewing the sessions in few minutes

    Classroom Capture Technology Process

    Distribution Methods

    • Live presentations.

    • On-Demand presentations.

    • Publishing presentations to a file folder or CDs.

    • Podcasting

    Classroom Capture Reports

    Server Activity

    Incentives to Adoption of Classroom Capture(Students).

    • Enhance comprehension

    • Improve study and review for:

      • Homeworks

      • Reviewing for exams

      • Refreshing knowledge in preparation for other classes

    • Reduce language barriers

    • Catch-up in the event a class is missed due to illness.

    • Accessibility: sessions are automatically posted to course pages where students can retrieve them alongside assignments, references and other course information.

    Incentives to Adoption of Classroom Capture(Students).

    • Choice :(face-to-face and/or online) sections

  • Play segments of video rather than the entire video to Maintain interest

  • Universally viewable

  • Breaks the requirement for students to either:

    • pay attention

    Campus Administration Role

    • Funding and infrastructure

    • Support for both staff and faculty.

    • Integration with other entities within the campus.

    • Faculty Encouragement

    Administration and Faculty Involvement

    From the beginning they participated in:

    • Attending several vendors demos including Mediasite

    • Studying technical aspects

    • Studying quotes

    • Getting feedback from faculty

    • Announcing the plan ahead of time.

    Obstacles to Adoption of Classroom Capture.

    • The perception that a drop in student attendance will occur because:

      • Students think that no need to be in class

      • Any inconvenience can be a reason to stay home

    • Attendant loss of interaction in class

    • Decline in note taking

    • Faculty resistance because:

      • Permanent recording of class

      • Loss of control over content

      • Random evaluation by administration

    Faculty Resistance

    • Paulo Freire (1973) once said that “The answer does not lie in the rejection of the machine but in the humanization of man” (p.35).

    • Freire (1972) also said "It is not the media themselves which I criticize, but the way they are used" (p.136).

    Dealing with Faculty

    • Involving Faculty from the beginning

    • Insuring Privacy

    • Tutorials

    • On trial basis

    • Requests from students services

    • Working with some students

    • Edit some sessions as requested by faculty members

    • …..

    The Challenges

    • Convincing all faculty members to be recorded and use the recorded sessions in their WebCT courses

    • Managing 30+ classrooms

    • Enhancing whiteboards capturing (Math)

    • Enhancing Sound Quality

    • Ability to interface new devices

    Future Improvements

    • Enhancing science classes whiteboards writings sessions clarity

    • Using multiple cameras without operator

    • Automatic Integration with WebCT

    • Enhancing audio quality

    • Convincing all faculty members

    • Documenting H/W & S/W troubleshooting.

    Some Research Findings

    Source: Insights regarding undergraduate preference for lecture capture UW-MADISON ONLINE-LEARNING STUDY

    Future of Classroom Capture

    Recent research indicates that lecture capture integrated with other instructional technologies will be one of the cornerstones of pedagogical advancement over the next decade.

    • Learning Objects

    • Metadata SCORM

    • Optical character recognition(OCR)

    What are the Learning Objects?

    • Learning Objects are defined here as any digital resource that can be reused to support learning.

    • Learning objects can be described in terms of their:

      • Reusability derived from the concept of reusing small programming segments in computer science.

      • Granularity that means the scope and size of a learning object.

    Learning Objects Environment

    STEM Center

    • Learning Objects Environment that will host:

      • Simulations

      • Discussion sessions
