Use of Videorecording Equipment as an Educational Tool.
Webster, Harold J.
The faculty at the DuBois Campus of the Pennsylvania State University are using video recording equipment in a variety of ways. Student performances are videotaped for different purposes in speech, marketing, and physical education classes. Professors in the Wildlife Technology Program are using portable videotaping equipment to record activities that occur at times and locations that prohibit students from viewing them. Factors which have affected the use of videotaping at the college include the location of equipment, faculty access, scheduling, the availability of a media specialist or audiovisual technician, the quality and availability of facilities (e.g., the sound studio and editing room), the training and experience of faculty, the quality of equipment, the availability of time to develop videotapes, and financial and administrative support for production. With acceptance by faculty and training in its use, the advantages of videorecording as an educational tool can outweigh logistical difficulties and can enhance the educational process. (LAL)
