The classroom of today is evolving at phenomenal speed. Institutions are moving to blended learning environments, using technology to extend learning far beyond the limits of traditional lecture halls. Online learning tools, such as lecture capture, are essential to making this possible.
Lecture capture technology provides a platform for instructors to record or stream lectures and integrate presentations, videos and other multimedia materials to complement the lectures. Students can stream these live or recorded lectures on their own time, from any location using a variety of mobile devices. Collaborative features — such as email and live chat — allow students to interact directly with instructors and classmates.
Lecture capture technologies can help institutions:
- Ease overcrowding from over-enrollment since students do not have to be physically present to access lectures and interact with professors.
- Improve learning outcomes and graduation rates with flexible learning options that give students access to specific content when they need it.
- Encourage student collaboration among themselves and with instructors through interactive tools.
- Recruit students by offering differentiated education solutions that enable students to learn and engage anywhere, at any time.
- Generate new streams of revenue through distance learning offerings.
