REC:all is transnational learning technology project supported by the European Commission under the Life Long Learning Programme, it aims to explore new ways in which lecture capture can become more pedagogically valuable and engaging, and is investigating a variety of learning design, technical and legal issues.
Academics in more and more Higher Education Institutions are discovering the power video can have in terms of student learning and are producing their own videos on an increasingly large scale, sometimes these are full weblectures, in other situations shorter knowledge clips. But next to investing in the best video tools they can afford, institutions are increasingly required to provide training to their lecturers in order for them to be more comfortable with the tools and to improve the overall quality of the resulting videos.
In the first M&L webinar this academic year, Sonia Hetzner from the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Institute für Lern-Innovation (ILI), Germany will explain how she and her team are preparing their academics to use the new lecture capture system adopted by the university.…Continue
The infokit begins with a brief look at the pros and cons of using video to support teaching and learning, discusses video pedagogy and then moves onto the planning and writing of the content. It then considers the resources needed for the video, including personnel, locations and equipment, as well as the importance of establishing all of the steps needed to complete the production and their interdependencies.
Budgeting, scheduling and legal and health and safety issues are also covered to ensure that you can…Continue
Interesting project on OER: http://www.terena.org/activities/oer/
The initial idea of a federated Open Educational Resource (OER) portal service pilot tailored to the TERENA Community was born in TF-Media and it has now developed to the stage where TERENA launched a small pilot project in order to design, develop and deploy the first working prototype of a European-level metadata harvesting and aggregation engine as well as a pilot web portal being the main demonstrator of its value-added services at TERENA.
If you work at a (UK) HE institution you may be interested in the creation of the following email list:
There are already a couple of JISC lists for specific technologies, but this is a more generic channel to share knowledge and experience around the whole are of lecture capture. The list is open to anyone to join, so if you’re not in UK HE feel free to join anyway as long as you think it’ll be relevant to you (for example, if you are supplying resources to UK HE).
Discussion on future of lecture capture technologyfollow-up on the REC:all webinar held on 18 December 2013 with Abton Bollen from TechSmith, JJ van Delsen from Panopto and Andy Wasklewicz from…Continue
