Class video recording

Common reasons for having a class recorded include

  1. Sharing the video with students – for review or when students have to miss class
  2. Improving your teaching
  3. Building a teaching portfolio

An instructor of record may arrange for a videographer from the OIT to record a daytime class at no charge. Use this as an opportunity for self-examination, a way to document student presentations, or an addition to your teaching portfolio.

The university can’t feasibly provide enough videographers to record a semester’s worth of class sessions for many different courses. The OIT has been exploring “lecture capture” technology that can do this unattended.

The Kaneb Center offers a “Collaborative Teaching Reflection” service. First an OIT videographer records one class session, then a Center staff member observes a different session and reviews course materials, including the syllabus. The final step is to meet for an hour with the Kaneb staff member to discuss what is working, as well as potential areas for improvement.
