Lecture capture research literature review
I’m frequently asked by colleagues whether there is any evidence that lecture capture ie effective, and this question is often accompanied by the assertion that the introduction of lecture capture must have a negative effect on attendance.
There is now a significant amount of research into different aspects of the use of lecture capture in HE, and here at Loughborough we have an increasing amount of data, such as the results of the recent survey conducted by Facilities Management into student experiences of teaching spaces on campus, which included questions on the ReVIEW lecture capture system. (I’ll pick up on this in a future post.)
Arun Karnad at the LSE has very helpfully compiled a report summarising the findings of recent lecture capture research relating to the following questions:
1. How do students use recorded lectures?
2. When do students access recorded lectures?
3. What effect do recorded lectures have on student attainment?
4. What effect do recorded lectures have on student attendance?
