Lecture Capture – can it help ‘hard to reach’ students?

Matthew Newcombe


What are the consequences of implementing Lecture Capture technology and how does it support students, especially those who are ‘hard to reach’? There is growing evidence about the benefits to students that lecture recordings provide and, in particular, about how they can directly support specific groups of learners.  However, it is not easy to balance the needs of students with academic concerns, technological barriers and policy issues which need to be overcome. This piece presents the author’s views, having supported the wide-scale use of lecture capture technology since 2008.
