Free webinar on lecture capture and learning analytics

September 17th, 2014 in Announcements, Data Analysis, Echo360, Lecture Capture

Interested in capturing your lectures on video? The University of Ottawa is hosting a free webinar on the lessons from their more than six years’ experience with lecture capture technology, and from their use of learning analytics. The webinar will be September 23 at 2pm EDT. Their press release promises to discuss the following:

  • How a single early adopter transformed a lecture capture experiment into a world-class operation reaching more than 15,000 users per term, with an 88% satisfaction rate
  • See how lecture capture can help low-achieving students improve outcomes by as much as half a letter grade
  • Find out how video usage analytics reveals the differences between “deep learners” and “surface learners” in their study habits
  • The secret to inspiring a +90% class participation rate and the drastic post-test learning gains resulting from active learning

uOttawa uses the same Echo360 technology we use at BU, so their lessons are likely to be directly applicable. Register to participate in the event.
