Who We Are • Presenting perspectives of two institutions University of Maryland – Dental School • James Craig, Professor and Educational Consultant Coppin State University • Sadie Gregory, Provost and V. P. of Academic Affairs • Ahmed El Haggan, CIO and V. P. of IT • Habtu Braha, Dean, School of Management Sciences • Chris Brittan-Powell, Asst. Professor
Session Goals • Provide brief overview of lecture capture systems (LCS) and their place in the academic marketplace. • Describe our experiences at our institutions. • Give hard data on effectiveness of LCS.
What is a LCS? • Lecture Capture – term used to describe a set of technologies to digitally preserve both the visual and audio aspects of a presentation. – Typical Capabilities • Publishing of presentation • Asynchronous viewing • Remote viewing
LCS • Applicable across course formats – f 2 f – Hybrid – Fully online • Can be used to provide – Pre-lecture (or lab) preparatory material – Tutorial information / trainings – Extra material • Recordings can be used as learning objects that are utilized across semesters and educational settings.
Benefits of a LCS • First present data on the benefits as found at both our institutions: – University of Maryland Dental School – Coppin State University
Research on Student Attitudes Toward Lecture Capture Dental School University of Maryland, Baltimore
Educational Technology • Lecture halls - Crestron, Telestrator, 2 video cameras (front and back), audio • Laptop requirement Dental 1, 2, 3 Hygiene 1, 2 • Control room - remote control for lecture hall technology – make it easy on faculty • Curriculum - Blackboard, Mediasite, Questionmark
Integration • Dean – embraced technology and curriculum change • Introduced lecture capture technology to faculty and campus IT group. • Requested on-site trial for hands-on opportunity. • Developed list of functional considerations • CIO made it happen • Did many presentations demonstrating the technology in other
Typical Course Offerings • • Cell and Molecular Biology Microbiology and Immunology Gross Anatomy Neuroscience Physiology Dental Anatomy and Occlusion Operative Dentistry General Pathology
Nature of Courses • Highly visual • Lots of terminology • Need for “front row seat” for clinical demonstrations • Need opportunity to review content 24 x 7 • Classes held in multiple rooms or locations • Accommodate students where English is a second language
Student Attitudes Toward Lecture Capture • Dental (122) and Dental Hygiene (33) Students Years 1 & 2 (11/2007) • 111 had viewed more than 25 captures • Prefer to watch alone without distraction • Prefer to watch streaming using telestrator with slides
Capture Statistics Lecture Captures Times accessed • • • Fall 2006 - 42 Spring 2007 – 194 Fall 2007 – 637 Spring 2008 – 556 Fall 2008 – 692 (through today, 12/19) Fall 2006 – 4, 415 Spring 2007 – 15, 790 Fall 2007 – 49, 562 Spring 2008 – 50, 342 Fall 2008 – 77, 031
Student Attitudes Toward Lecture Capture • Slight preference for using Mediasite and attending lectures upon occasion vs. attending lectures and using Mediasite to enhance notes • Typical dental class is 128 students with about 35 to 40 attending a given lecture. • Dental Hygiene has attendance requirement so all attend except distance education students.
Does Lecture Capture Make it EASIER to Learn • 142 students (91%) responded strongly agree or agree that lecture capture made it easier for them to learn. • Given attendance level, performance equal to or better than straight lecture.
LIKED MOST • Stop, start, repeat, FF, RW or pause, take better notes • Anytime and anyplace • Speed control, to watch what you know faster or slow down to take notes • Clinical procedures can be viewed repeatedly
LIKED LEAST • Instructor not using telestrator • Instructor doesn’t wear mic or walks away from podium microphone • More speed options other than slow, normal and fast • Instructor’s don’t repeat questions from audience
Considerations • Establish an attendance policy when lecture capture is being used to avoid confusion and ill will. • Explore most effective use of this medium, e. g. some of our faculty give lectures “sans” students. • Use interactive technology such as “Turning Point Technology” to engage students during lectures.
COMMENTS • “have those (faculty) who are bitter about it (lecture capture) realize that students have their own ways of learning and that most of the people that are in class anyways are not paying attention (scan the room with the a video camera and you will see!). The only thing that matters is that we are learning and if they (the faculty) have failing or poor averages to show you to contradict this, that is because they taught the material POORLY, because everyone watched the professors lecture as many times as they needed to and could catch every detail thanks to Mediasite!”
COMMENTS • “You can watch and learn lecture material in your favorite setting, you can fastforward when going through material you are already familiar with, you can pause and rewind when you didn't hear or write down everything you wanted to, it saves time, and it reduces my stress level by giving me more free time. Also the fast setting for lecture presentations is great. ”
What does it cost? / Media. Site University of Maryland Dental School • 4 Mediasite units @ $20, 000 = $80, 000 • Serving Dental 1, 2, 3 (390 students) Dental Hygiene 1, 2 (62 students) • 197, 140 June 1, 2006 through December 19, 2008 / $80, 000 = >$2. 46 a view • 2099 lecture captures / $80, 000 = $38. 11 a lecture

Additional CSU Research Empirical Data of LCS Effectiveness • Research Question: – Does the use of a LCS influence key academic indicators such as students academic performance and/or retention? • Research Design – Causal-Comparative - Group Comparison • Follow up Correlational Analyses – Compare academic indicators for students experiencing different course delivery formats for the same course. – 3 year long study – Data Set
Group Comparisons Three Course Delivery Formats • f 2 f – Non-LCS Enhanced – Fall ’ 05 - 1 semester data (n = 34) • f 2 f – LCS Enhanced) – Spring ’ 05 through Spring 07 - 5 semesters data (n = 82) • Fully Online using LCS – Fall ’ 05 through Spring 07 - 6 semesters data (n=192)
Course Delivery Formats Comparison Outcomes Grades No significant difference in grades between: • f 2 f -Non-LCS Enhanced vs. Fully Online t = 1. 49, p >. 05 LCS makes ‘old’ static fully online model more dynamic and permits instructor to attend to class management issues and monitor students progress more closely via CMS
Course Delivery Formats Grades – Differences between: • f 2 f–LCS Enhanced and f 2 f Non-LCS Enhanced) t = 4. 36, p <. 001 - (Tegrity Enhanced – higher grades) – Tegrity adds an important educational resource to the traditional f 2 f classroom – Compensatory mechanism * Student missing class not as serious * Reviewing of notes, etc.
Course Delivery Formats Grades Significant Difference between: • f 2 f–LCS Enhanced vs. Fully Online t = 3. 27, p <. 05 - (f 2 f-LCS Enhanced – higher grades) Two key factors may explain this small/modest effect size. a) Additional instructional resources b) Self selection issues
Student LCS Viewing Time and Grades • Across Course Formats (f 2 f-Enhanced & Fully Online), Students’ usage of the LCS is positively correlated with their grades – f 2 f - LCS Enhanced Class r = +. 31, df = 80, p <. 01 R 2 =. 10 – Fully Online Class r =. 64, df = 190, p <. 001 R 2 =. 41
Student Retention • Student Retention Comparisons: – f 2 f (non-LCS Enhanced) 71 percent – f 2 f - LCS Enhanced 81 percent – Fully Online (with LCS) 83 percent • LCS is associated with roughly a 10% increase in student retention • Analogous findings in all categories have been found in other online courses using LCS

Jim Craig Functional Considerations for Lecture Capture System Integrate with Blackboard, the campus course management system. Provides catalog for organizing, referencing and accessing captured lectures. Start and stop captures from control room, remotely or within the lecture hall thorough the course management system. Collect statistics concerning number of lectures captured, viewing statistics such as who, when, how much viewed, how many times, etc. Do remote captures “on-site” for special occasions such as graduation, guest speakers, continuing education, ceremonies, “State of the School Address”, etc. Flexible viewing characteristics such as syncing audio with the selection of individual slides, control panel to accommodate viewer preferences such as increasing or decreasing image size, speeding up or slowing down presentation, adjusting audio level. Maintain image quality of dental surgeries, clinical demonstrations.
Jim Craig Functional Considerations for Lecture Capture System Convert video presentations to streaming media Ability to edit presentations, add titles, graphics, special effects or delete unwanted material.
