Lecture Capture: Feedback requested by August 23, 2012

Monday, August 20, 2012

The university currently is looking at purchasing a lecture capture system to facilitate recording classroom sessions, lectures, and other live events for later distribution online.

As part of that process, Dell, Panopto, and McGraw Hill were invited to demonstrate their lecture capture products in the Friends of the Library Room on the Athens Campus on August 13, 15, and 17 respectively. During each of those sessions, Dr. Gene Geist, Ohio University faculty member and Interim Academic Technologies Director, recorded a lecture for comparison purposes.

Dr. Geist's recordings now are available for viewing online (see below for links). 

Interested members of the university community are encouraged to watch these videos and complete a short survey about the three products. Survey responses received by 5:00 pm on August 23, 2012 will be taken into consideration as the university moves forward with its RFP evaluation.

All three videos were recorded in the same room under similar conditions and are designed to allow you to test playback features like:
  • Search capabilities
  • Bookmarking
  • Variable speed playback
  • Note taking
  • Customizable screen layouts
Please keep in mind that the demo room did not have ideal lighting, sound, or atmosphere.
