Since 2007 the ICTO Social Sciences team has actively been recording lectures on video. These recordings can be used for multiple educational purposes. One of the main applications of this service is the integration into Blackboard courses, which allows students to watch the lectures again at their own convenience. This is especially helpful during examination periods and icidental absence. Another useful aspect is that teachers are able to use the recordings to improve their presentations or use them for their own purposes.
With the help of Mediasite software lectures can be linked to (Powerpoint) presentations used during the lecture. Based on the Powerpoint slides an index will be created, which allows people to skip to specific parts of the lecture.
The lecturer is personally not required to make any additional effort as we both record and publish the lectures online. If desired we can provide the lecturer a DVD containing all the lectures at the end of the semester.
The ICTO social sciences team offers this service to all interested lecturers. To request this service, send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
