Are you being captured?

February 25th, 2011

Today I gave a presentation on lecture capture as part of a faculty forum on campus about teaching with technology. Stetson’s Associate Provost for Faculty Development Karen Kaivola helped put together this afternoon of faculty sharing the unique ways we use technology. It was a great event where a lot of ideas were traded among colleagues, some of whom wouldn’t normally get to share techniques with each other. I was especially interested in the way Tandy Grubbs is using casual gaming to teach Chemistry concepts and the use of FaceBook groups in Andy Dehnart‘s first-year seminar.  They gave me some ideas to follow up on.

Since the presentation was on lecture capture, it made sense to capture it! For this task, I used ProfCast. This is the same software that captured the other enhanced podcasts you’ll find on this website. It is super easy to use and I highly recommend it.

I know this a bit different than my usual focus on electronic music and audio signal processing, but I figured some might be interested in the tools I use to teach. Let me know your thoughts.  As I usually do, I’ll post Flickr credits and links to the reports cited in my comments.
