Improving Lecture Capture to Increase Faculty Adoption and Student Engagement

Tech Smith

TechSmith recently published a case study on how the Office of Information Technology consolidated lecture capture technology to increase student engagement and faculty adoption, and save $350,000 each year.

In our ongoing efforts to standardize classroom technologies, we found the multiple lecture capture solutions in use due to decentralized decision-making were causing confusion for faculty, difficult to manage by technical support staff, and unable to accommodate flexible learning environments. Engagement with students was on a downward trend.

These multiple solutions were also costing the University an enormous amount of money each year.

By moving lecture capture to TechSmith Relay, we replaced hardware with software, thereby reducing onsite support costs. Lecture captures are now hosted in the cloud, eliminating the need for onsite hosting equipment. We can now make lecture capture available in any general classroom. Faculty now have consistent, streamlined tools available to edit and manage their content.

As a result, not only are we saving $350,000 annually in support, licensing, maintenance and hardware costs, but student engagement with lecture capture has markedly increased.
