Abstract
In recent semesters, we have piloted three low-cost ways to make classroom recordings: - Audio-only automated recording, where just the instructor's voice is captured in a large lecture hall with permanently installed hardware - Audio-only recording using a portable device, where instructor's and students' voices are captured around a seminar table in a small room - Audio recording plus screen-capture using Sympodium hardware, where a movie of screen activity, including PowerPoint, is created with a synchronized audio track of the instructor's voice.
We tracked the costs and labor involved with these technologies, and surveyed instructors and students both before and after the semester.
