        The best use of proprietary lecture capture
             “Require students to apply lecture material to a case study, problem
              set, or real-world application, instead of passively watching the
             “Include questions in lectures that students need to respond to. After
              reviewing the lecture, the student responds to questions on a
              discussion board. Students can respond to other students’ responses
              as well.”
   Live synchronous lecture capture at a distance
   Non-video lecture capture
   Voice Over PowerPoint (VOPP)
   Free online alternatives
        How can you have live lecture captures that are
         not in a classroom?
             Through the use of Web Conferencing
                    These are not free solutions for lecture capture
        “Incorporate a synchronous component in the lecture
         capture system through a tool like Wimba. This provides
         online students the potential to get immediate feedback
         to questions. In addition, this option provides a larger
         pool of diverse students in the class discussion. Online
         students from a broader geographical area can provide a
         diverse perspective.”
   Can record these a slide at a time
   This is good for editing at later times
   These can also be converted to Flash and
    played as a movie using iSpring
   Why use an MP3 for lecture capture?
   Free and very easy to use
   Does require the LAME encoder to produce
    MP3 files.
