Lecture Capture at CSUDH

What is Lecture Capture?

Lecture Capture is the process of creating video instructional materials from faculty lectures. This can take a variety of forms, but the technologies supported by CSUDH Instructional Technology are Camtasia Studio, Camtasia Relay, and Blackboard Collaborate. These software products allow you to capture your voice and the content of your computer desktop and turn them into videos that can be viewed online by your students.

Why Lecture Capture?

The most commonly held idea for using lecture capture is to create instructional materials for online classes. Lecture capture can also be used to create instruction that can be view and reviewed outside of class so that class time can be utilized for other methods of instruction. One of these methods is called “flipping the classroom” where lectures are viewed online at home and class time is used for supervising students doing what would normally be thought of as homework.
