Lecture capture solutions enrich the tried and true learning environment, enabling the manual or automatic capture of lectures or presentations. Uploaded to an institution's website or course management system manually or automatically, recorded lectures provide flexible on-demand or live viewing capabilities to academic audiences. Students can view captured course content in the comfort of their own home, on-the-go via podcasts, or through mobile technology minutes before an exam. This flexibility provides reinforcement to students who attend class or can enhance distance learning programs for remote students.
