Lecture Capture Information and "Flipping the Classroom"


What is Lecture Capture?

Lecture Capture is the process of creating and instructional and informative video based off a lecture. This can take a variety of forms, but the technologies supported by the CSUDH Academic Technology Department are:

  • TechSmith Relay
  • Camtasia Studio
  • Blackboard Collaborate

These software products allow you to capture and digitally record your voice and the display of your computer screen, and then publishing a video with that content 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. Articles on flipping the classroom can be found here:
