Possible Mediasite (Lecture Capture, Webcasting) applications at UW-Sheboygan
Supplemental Course Material – Instructors create 8-20 minute recordings (sometimes called desktop capture) of short, focused content. Instructors can then post the links on their D2L page, or distributed any other way they see fit.
Time Shift and Flexibility for Students - Recording face to face lectures is useful for students to be able to go back and double-check something, or for students who need to miss class.
Time Shift and Flexibility for Instructors - If an instructor knows they will not be able to make it to a scheduled class, the lecture can be recorded ahead of time for students to watch.
Widening the Student Pool - Recording some courses and giving the instructor the option of letting students not attend all the time (or possibly at any time). This allows students who live far from campus the option of taking a class they might not have otherwise taken.
Flipped Classroom - The concept of using lecture capture to deliver some content and then to use lecture time to have more give and take, to cover tough material, to encourage students to arrive at lecture prepared to learn.
Live Streaming – Geographically displaced students can watch the presentation live, and interact by asking questions via PC texting. The presentation is, of course, recorded for later viewing.
Other Uses – Presentation recording for distribution to committee members not able to make the presentation due to time or geography, staff training and how-to’s, or administrative information distribution.
