Mainstream use of video in Higher Education

Plenary / learn

Lecture capture is one technology that has certainly gone mainstream in many universities. However many people question its value in terms of innovation and much still needs to be discovered and implemented to make it really effective including how to ensure it is open to as many students as possible. And lecture capture is not the only video-based service that is going mainstream. Join this plenary session to discuss the implications of campus wide video based services in general.

Coffee Break

According to wikipedia, the 'coffee break' allegedly originated in the late 19th century in Wisconsin, USA with the wives of Norwegian immigrants - but in conference terms it has come to mean the time when you meet old friends and catch up on news and developments.

H5P tools to enrich interactivity of online videos

Workshops / learn

Interactive features can prolong the life of an online video. H5P content such as games, multimedia, questionnaires and social media can be layered on the top of your own video or any YouTube video without changing the original video. In this workshop, participants will get to know H5P tools and create at least one video featuring H5P interactive elements. Participants need to bring their own laptop.

Student produced video

What lecture capture needs to be a useful tool for learning

Workshops / learn

Mere video recording of a lecture, even if it is a very interesting and important one, is not sufficient for learning from it. Some additional content is required as well as navigational and other tools. Workshop participants will discuss in small groups the variety of learning needs where lecture capture might be handy. Next they will try to identify additional content needed. Finally those new insights will be integrated in a proposal for Rich Lecture Capture content and potential tools. One such tool will be demonstrated.

What works? Do It Yourself Concepts for Higher Education

Discussions / talk

Explore and discuss a range of different concepts and approaches to production that are being adopted by universities across Europe ranging from complete DIY to other variants and practices.

Discussants include:
