Lecture capture allows instructors to create audio/video recordings of their lecture. The captured lecture is then made available to students for web-based playback.
There are several reasons to consider using lecture capture. By having a recording of your class, students can go back at anytime and review the material that was presented in class. An instructor can also use lecture capture to create supplemental material to be made available to students between lectures. This technology can assist with the implementation of online and hybrid classes, or if the instructor or student cannot attend class. Additionally presentations can be recorded for playback at a later date.
Camtasia Relay software captures the instructor’s computer screen, voice, and can also include the instructor's webcam. When students watch the lecture they see your recorded computer screen and hear your audio.
TechSmith Fuse is a mobile app for iOS and Android that works with Camtasia Relay. It is easy to use; you can record videos from wherever you are and submit them to the Camtasia server where the recordings are automatically published.
