Category: Lecture capture
If you attended any of the educational technology conferences in the last few weeks, you probably heard at least one consistent theme: how do we measure the impact of technology on learning?
CBS News Channel 5 KGWN-TV Cheyenne, Wyoming, did a neat story this week on Mediasite at the University of Wyoming, where lecture capture is known as Wyocast. They highlighted a student survey, the results of which I think our readers and Mediasite users will most enjoy:
77% of students used Wyocast to watch lectures to review for quizzes or exams
I’ve talked about the importance of reporting before, but I’m betting you’ll find Joel Goble’s view on how reporting helped prove the value of what he was doing with Mediasite pretty interesting.
When you show people the ramifications of their decisions, they change their behavior.
We get asked a lot if lecture capture affects in-class attendance. The EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research released The ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology.
