New paper published: Lecture recordings to support learning: a contested space between students and teachers in Computers and Education.

lecture capture technology Neil Morris, Bronwen Swinnerton and Taryn Coop have recently published a major new study on the impacts of lecture capture on staff and students in the journal Computers and Education – the paper is available here: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compedu.2019.103604. Highlights from the study:

 

  • Students use lecture recordings during term time for learning, and for assessment preparation and examination revision
  • Students request more lecture recordings and quicker access to recordings
  • Students attendance when lectures are recorded is significantly lower
  • Staff have mixed views on the effectiveness of lecture recordings to support learning
  • Staff perceptions of the value of lecture recordings change over time

The publication of the journal article was covered by the Times Higher Education, including comments from Professor Morris. You can see the article here: https://www.timeshighereducation.com/news/accept-lecture-capture-despite-attendance-drop-says-dean
