REC:all held its final meeting in Valencia and prepares reports and final workshop

ATiT met its partners from the REC:all project in a final face-to-face meeting on 20 and 21 June at the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia, in Spain. REC:all is a transnational learning technology project supported by the European Commission under the Lifelong Learning Programme and aims to explore new ways in which lecture capture can become more pedagogically valuable and engaging, and is investigating a variety of learning design, technical and legal issues.

An important part of the meeting focused on the review of the 3 different reports that REC:all will publish by the end of the project (December 2013): a Pedagogy Guide, which describes how to use lecture-capture solutions at universities in a good didactic way. The second report, the Technology Guide, will give an insight into different technological trends and will provide an overview of the most important lecture-capture service providers. The third document is a Legal Guide focusing on the legal aspect, for example copyright and intellectual property right issues.

A final REC:all workshop will be organised as a pre-conference event before the Media & Learning Conference on 11 December where the community of practitioners together with lecture capture suppliers will come together to discuss the latest issues, needs and developments in the field. After the official end of the project in December 2013 the REC:all community website will stay active for at least 2 years and also after this period there are plans to find a new context to continue the exchange of information amongst European practitioners  in the form of a Special Interest Group in the recently launched Media & Learning Association. This group is made up of practitioners, suppliers, teachers, developers, educational technologists and others who share an interest and experience in the field of lecture capture and video for learning.
