Effectiveness and Growth of Room Capture and Interactive Classrooms on Campuses Large and Small: Making the Business Case for your Institution

Lecture/room capture, interactive classrooms and recording classroom media for learning and teaching has established itself in advanced education to represent the expected standard for many institutions worldwide – for good reason. The effectiveness in providing searchable class lectures and interactive room sessions for fast, online review has accelerated the successful completion of challenging and complex courses like Pharmaceutical Sciences, Engineering, Business and Law.

The effectiveness has also been proven with research studies by Harvard, Leeds and UBC. Research has shown that the fears of diminished classroom attendance, job reduction, course redundancy are not reality. Some institutions now require all rooms be recorded, unless opting out in advance. Captured classes and sessions enable a wide range of schools to expand enrollment of both in-class and distance learning programs. Join us in a one-hour, interactive expert panel discussion to learn about advanced technologies in use at UBC (Collaborate (Blackboard), Focus (Panopto), Kaltura, Mediasite and others). We will provide the facts to help you create a business case for your institution’s technology investments.
