At the intersection of OIT operations and pedagogy, Learning Spaces Technology (LST) and the Academic Technology Design Team (ATDT) partnered to find out how instructors and students are leveraging the Classroom Capture Service for teaching and learning and make recommendations to optimize pedagogical use and the service itself.
Classroom Capture is CU Boulder’s branding of lecture capture, whereby instructors can record their lectures in select classrooms and share a link to the recordings with their students.
Classroom Capture positively impacts teaching and student success, as reported by instructor and student users. Additional findings:
We cover a lot on the first day of class--the syllabus, how the class works...and a lot of students miss it. I can just tell them, 'Watch the [recording], you won’t miss anything.'
I encourage students to attend class...the recordings are for checking their notes, reviewing before quizzes and exams, when they are out sick, snow days, etc.
Being able to use previously-recorded lectures was extremely helpful when we had a snow day and we couldn’t get behind. I also use [Classroom Capture] for personal development. I watch the recordings occasionally to improve my presentation skills and see how I respond to students’ questions.
We use Classroom Capture to let TAs practice giving a lecture and give them the opportunity to watch themselves teach.
These students write to remember, learn by doing, and/or take quality notes to reference for assignments and exams.
When there were parts I would miss, it would allow me to go back and clarify. It helped me confirm the notes I had taken with what the professor actually said.
Include the studious as well as those who wait until the last minute to study for quizzes and exams.
I appreciated that exam review sessions were also recorded when possible. I work three jobs in addition to full-time schooling so it’s often difficult to attend meetings outside of normal class hours.
Students who are in courses with complex, technical, and/or an abundance of content
It helped me go back and review certain concepts and topics that were challenging the first time around.
These students miss class for planned or unexpected reasons such as surgeries, medical illnesses, mental health issues, health or safety concerns, etc.
I had surgery and was able to miss any classes necessary due to that and still keep up with the course. I really appreciated having that as an option.
Feel more confident when they can learn on their own terms, at their own pace. These students self-manage their own learning, and some may request accommodation.
There are many distractions in lecture (e.g. students on their phones, laptops, students talking) that can make it difficult to pay attention or hear everything in lecture. Lecture capture has allowed me to go back and review things that were missed, in an environment without distractions.
Are balancing multiple responsibilities which take them away from class on occasion (e.g., student athletes, those with family and work commitments).
I was able to keep up with the class and the material when I was on military orders for 2 weeks. I could log in and watch the lecture, take notes and everything else I would have done in a class other than be able to ask questions, but with lecture captures I at least had those questions for office hours upon my return.
Based on these findings, our recommendations are focused on more effective use of Classroom Capture as well as increasing usage of the Service.
