I went to a rather interesting meeting this afternoon. The university is setting up a pilot scheme to test out lecture capture in Semester 2. With a bit of luck they will be capturing some of my lectures, which will be interesting. Later the plan is to roll this out across the years of study, depending on how popular it proves.
The technology looks very impressive. We can either capture on our laptops or use an lecture capture device installed in the theaters. The idea is that within an hour or so of the lecture the material could be available to view via the web or offline.
The system that we are testing comes from echo360. Should be fun.
