Faculty Forum - January 21, 2022
From Andy Jones
For those unfamiliar with this service, Lecture Capture is available on request to those who teach in any of the 108 general assignment classrooms equipped to record lectures. These Lecture-Capture-capable rooms can record your audio, computer output, and the document camera; additionally, 43 of these (larger) classrooms can also record video of you and any board work you may do.
Lecture Capture recordings are saved to the relevant instructor’s account in AggieVideo, and can then be shared with an entire class or with individual students via a Canvas course page. You can find more information about this service, including a list of the Lecture-Capture-capable rooms, in the IET Service Catalog entry about Classroom Lecture Capture. Find answers to additional questions on the Lecture Capture page on the Keep Teaching site.
During the first long wave of emergency remote instruction, which left classrooms across campus empty and thus available for upgrades, multiple teams at IET were hard at work enabling more of these classrooms to be Lecture-Capture-capable. The result is that more than 30 additional classrooms have been enabled for Lecture Capture since the start of the pandemic. With the return to in-person instruction in Fall Quarter 2021, the demand for this service tripled as compared to Fall Quarter 2019, so we were all grateful for those additional rooms and for the hard-working staff who support the service.
We were joined for this Faculty Forum by the coordinators of the Lecture Capture program, as well as by faculty in Chemistry, Evolution and Ecology, and Psychology who had Lecture Capture stories to tell.
