Good morning colleagues,
I’ve been involved in an untethered lecture capture (ULC) pilot project on the teaching side of my work here at the University of Portland. ULC involves using an iPad pro and a lecture capture app like Explain Everything to prepare and capture all or parts of what happens during a class. The recordings can be posted later on the class page on the course management system (e.g., Moodle).
I’m currently writing a grant application to obtain a couple Surface Pro tablets and Surface Pens for tutors to use to capture parts of tutoring sessions. The tablet will act as a virtual white board to which new pages can be added, and it can also capture discussing and marking up of papers and assignments (either as pdf files or photos of assignments on paper. Since the technology captures both the voice and writing, I will be able to collect some important data on tutor interactions. What I won’t capture is the non-verbal communication aspects of interactions; that I will still do during personal observations.
I’m curious if anyone is doing any program assessment and professional development of tutors using this technology. Is there any research on tutor interactions that has been done using this medium? Lecture capture has been around for some years, but I’ve yet to read about anyone using it in peer assistance environments. If anyone is using this technology, perhaps we could create a community of practice around it.
As always, thanks for your collegial feedback.
All the best,
