Abstract

The use of classroom capture systems (systems that capture audio and video footage of a lecture and attempt to replicate a classroom experience) is becoming increasingly popular at the university level. However, research on the effectiveness of classroom capture systems in the university classroom has been limited due to the recent development and utilization of the technology. In our study, a quasi-experimental methodology was used to examine the possible benefits of utilizing classroom capture technology as a supplementary resource in a traditional lecture-based course. Across four classes, two were exposed to classroom capture technology and the other two were not. The results suggest that exposure to classroom capture technology is associated with improved study strategies and positive student perceptions of a course. However, this investigation revealed no association between exposure to classroom capture technology and course grade.
