Learning Capture is an over-arching term to describe various forms of recording teaching. It comprises Lecture Capture (recording of a live session with students present) and Personal Capture (recording of teaching without students). Recordings can be created by capturing a combination of audio, video and/or screen. Recordings can then be made available to students through the Blackboard VLE.
Learning Capture offers many benefits to student learning; for example, as a resource for revision and supporting students for whom English is a second language. Specifically, Lecture Capture also offers the ability to revisit parts of a teaching session students have not understood; ease the need for note-taking in class; and help students who have missed classes due to illness to catch up. Personal Capture recordings can be used as part of blended and flipped learning approaches.
