Lecture, Video, and Screen Capture

The process of recording and archiving the content of al ecture, conference, or seminar, consisting of hardware and software components that work in synergy to record audio and visual components of the lecture. It also includes screen image capture software that can record activity on a computer screen. Videos can be made using this software and the computer for uploading into LMS platforms or other content management systems. Recent studies have demonstrated that recorded lectures improve student engagement and achievement by providing individual control over the pace of learning and the ability to review complex topics.
