Capturing staff views on lecture capture

Academic staff are being asked to take part in a survey on the University’s Echo lecture capture system.

Lecture capture is available as a learning resource in all lecture rooms on campus and via personal lecture capture on staff desktops or laptops. In its standard format it provides video, audio and screen capture of a lecture session. Material can be edited or simply uploaded in its raw state.

Lecture capture has been available at Loughborough for a number of years, which should enable staff to provide evidence-based feedback on the positive and any negative aspects. It’s hoped that the survey will facilitate a better understanding of the possible barriers to and enablers of the adoption of recording lectures. 

Part of a Teaching Centre project, the survey asks staff to consider the benefits and any drawbacks of the system and whether these are technical, pedagogic or personal. There are 10 questions and it should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. 

You can access the survey online until Friday 9 May.

The outcomes of the research will be fed into the Learning and Teaching Committee, to enable an adoption strategy to be formulated.
