After reading through Jen’s post on lecture capture from a staff perspective, I’ve been hit with it from a student perspective. There is a class that is required for my doctoral program and it is only taught once every two years. It’s coming in Spring.
It’s at 1:30 pm. I’m at work until 2:45pm. I’d get to class at 3:15pm and it ends at 4:15pm. Needless to say, I’d miss nearly two hours of lecture which I simply cannot afford to do.
Please don’t rag on lecture, this is not what this is about. It’s not up to us to decide how she wants to teach. The professor is a wonderful lady but is a bit older and she does things a certain way. Truth is, I like her classes, and I enjoy the lecture.
I’d like to capture video of the lecture but am not sure how to do it without it being a huge pain in the neck.
If the class were shorter I’d just give my Flip camera to someone, but it only holds an hour of footage.
If I’ll get there at 3:15, that’s an hour and 45 minutes. The other solution is a second Flip? I suppose that’s possible.
I have a few friends in the class so I could easily get them to set up cameras for me.
Anything better? Something simpler than two cameras?
