Lecture capture is any recorded lecture, audio, video or screen capture, used to relay course content and lectures for playback by students. The main types are personal lecture capture, classroom lecture capture and screencasting, or recording audio over an onscreen presentation.
The finished captures can be used in traditional courses, online courses and hybrid course environments. At UAA these recordings can be uploaded to your Blackboard course shell for easy student viewing access.
Recording a lecture is very different than giving a lecture in a live classroom. There are many new issues to take into consideration in the planning process.
You will need to begin with a script, plan the length of your recording, consider what images or places you will be showing online, do you own them, and/or do you have copyright license permissions for materials you are using?
- Review available software tutorials
- Practice recording and playback for quality checks
- Use a headset with microphone
- Create script of lecture to follow during recording
- With video think of your surroundings and clothing choices
- Chunk material into 15 minute (30 mins max) length videos
- Know what type of file output is needed
- Use pictures and graphics
- Don’t read your slides, lecture as if you are talking to students in class
- Post video scripts and lecture notes for your students
- Make sure posted captures contain closed captioning
- Be aware of using copyrighted documents or audio within the recording
