Personal Capture refers to the recording of teaching without students. Recordings can be created by capturing a combination of audio, video and/or screen. This might be a recording of a narrated PowerPoint presentation or a recording of an on-screen demonstration of how to perform a task in a computer application. A recording of a screen is referred to as a screen-cast. Recordings can be made available to students through, for example, the Blackboard VLE, Personal Capture recordings can be used as part of blended and flipped learning approaches.
The following pages detail all aspects of planning, recording, editing, sharing and engaging students with screen-casts:
