Capture a Lecture to Capture your Students

This week's post comes from our esteemed Online Dean Of Faculty, Kristen O'Connell:

"Creating an interactive environment in your course is always a crucial component in connecting to your online classroom. Most students choose to take online courses due to their flexibility. This does not mean that online students do not crave the social and auditory interaction that they once had in their residential classrooms. One way to build the bridge between you and your students is to create an audio lecture in your course.

There are many websites that can help you to find the lecture capture software that works best for you. Some of the most popular free sites are:
Jing –>
Screencast-o-matic ->
Echo360 –  Twitter: @Echo360
Prezi:  Twitter: @Prezi

If you find a software that works for you, please share it with us. ☺

Still looking for a reason to create an audio lecture? Keith Bain, the international manager of the Liberated Learning Consortium and an adjunct professor at St. Mary’s University, recently presented at a Faculty Focus online seminar and said, 'At the very simplest level, record your next lecture. At the minimum you can create an auditory based learning object that will greatly enhance learning opportunities for many of your students.' "
