As the availability of tablets both for lecturers and students increases and institutions of higher learning increasingly support a BYOD (bring your own device) strategy, the use of tablets and other mobile devices for teaching and learning becomes an exciting opportunity for lecturers.
Recording one’s lectures has a range of benefits, namely, making lectures available for students who miss class, and for those who would like to recap on the work covered. Mobile tablet devices offer lecturers the capability of recording their actual PowerPoint slides, their voice, as well as the notes they would draw on a whiteboard. Additionally, new wireless dongles allow the lecturer to show the class exactly what’s on the tablet, all while walking around the class.
Such new technologies offer lecturers a new form of flexibility inside and outside of the classroom; and by combining tablets with Blackboard, they provide effective ways of empowering students with the resources they need to become self-motivated learners. Recording one’s lectures can also be used for flipping the classroom and other innovative pedagogic practices.
In the session we will cover:
- Recording lectures with a tablet and laptop using apps such as Explain Everything for your ipad, REC screen Recorder No-Root for Android tablets and Electa live for your laptop (if Electa Live doesnt record audio on laptop you need to install Codec)
- Editing videos to suit different needs using video editing software such as MovieMaker
- Converting video recordings to podcast format and editing podcasts using Audacity (you will also need Lame mp3 encoder to convert our Audacity files into mp3)
