Faculty can take advantage of a number of upcoming opportunities to learn about lecture capture software. Please join us for one or more of these sessions if you’re interested in using lecture capture in your teaching.
Introduction to Software & Pedagogical Uses: Using Lecture Capture as an Effective Teaching and Learning Tool Lecture capture is a technology that allows you to record your voice along with what is being displayed on a computer screen. This often means capturing your spoken lecture along with the slides, websites, videos, or other media being presented with the lecture. However, the uses of this type of software go beyond simply recording lectures. Some faculty use lecture captures to provide material in advance of their lecture, to facilitate guest speakers whose schedules do not allow them to attend during class time, to provide students with rich feedback about their assignments and papers, and in other creative ways. This workshop will focus on showing participants the software and discussing pedagogy. No prerequisites—i.e. you do not have to yet have an account for GU’s new lecture capture software, Echo360.
Hands-On Software Training Instructor Lori Briggs will guide you in this course that begins with your first recording. You will also see where your recording uploads and what to do after the upload is complete. In addition, discover the steps of creating, saving and uploading your Echo classroom recording. This session allows additional time at the end for any individual questions and assistance you may require to successfully work with Echo360.
Advanced Editing of Captures
The Echo 360 software allows you to make easy edits such as snipping off ends or even snipping out middle portions. These easier edits will be covered in the “Hands-on Software Training” session. For more advanced editing the experts at Gelardin New Media center will provide training and consultation. Please schedule a consultation with a Gelardin New Media Center Multimedia Specialist (http://www.library.georgetown.edu/gelardin/consultation).
One on One or Small Group Consultation
For those of you who want to know more about using lecture capture, or simply have questions about using the software, CNDLS Graduate Associate Robert Wolfe will have consultation times available. Please email him directly to arrange a meeting: email@example.com
