Using video recordings can help free up lecture time and provide student feedback more efficiently.
These provide students the flexibility to access content when and where they choose and can also free up valuable class time for more active learning activities. By adding polls and quizzes to recorded lectures, faculty can assess student comprehension to more effectively deliver just-in-time teaching and intervention.
Given instructors’ demanding schedules and workload, providing students with effective and detailed feedback can be challenging. By using video capture software to record feedback, faculty can dictate instead of write their feedback, enabling feedback to be delivered more quickly. Students can also review the feedback multiple times to ensure understanding. More information on this technique can be found in the resources section.
UB faculty can use Panapto, available for free through UBIT, to record the screen and webcam from any computer, laptop or mobile device.
UB students can view recordings in Panopto but their ability to record is limited to an assignment folder.
