Last Tuesday, on 13 November 2012, ATiT organised a workshop together with KU Leuven (Teaching and Learning Department) about lecture capture in the context of the European Lifelong Learning project REC:all. The workshop called “Lecture Capture: current best practices and future developments in universities” was held in Heverlee, Belgium and was attended by over 60 people and included a mix of people from different countries (Belgium, Estonia, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, UK, Singapore, Japan, South Africa, USA) with various backgrounds (academics, industry experts, students, ICT staff etc.).
The first part of the day included presentations that highlighted best practices in lecture capture in different institutions: KU Leuven (by Roman Verraest), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (by Daniel Tan), Estonian Information Technology College (by Marko Puusaar), Universitat Politecnica de Valencia & the TransLectures project (by Carlos Turro-Ribalta), University of Manchester & Opencast Matterhorn (by Stuart Phillipson).
After the presentation sessions the participants took part in a World Café where pedagogy, technology, IPR and organisational issues where discussed in small groups.
The agenda also included opportunities for one-to-one discussions with industry experts from Polycom (Marci Powell), Techsmith (Anton Bollen) and Mediasite by SonicFoundry (Matt McCurdy).
The day ended with a final panel discussion which included a strong message from industry representatives: “please give us more of your feedback, so together we can improve products to better meet your needs”.
Recordings of the workshop will be online very soon on www.rec-all.info.
