Lecture Capture Technology and Student Performance in an Operations Management Course
Sloan, Thomas W.; Lewis, David A.
Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, v12 n4 p339-355 Oct 2014
Lecture capture technologies (LCT) such as Echo360, Mediasite, and Tegrity have become very popular in recent years. Many studies have shown that students favor the use of such technology, but relatively little research has studied the impact of LCT on learning. This article examines two research questions: (1) whether the use of LCT actually enhances learning outcomes, and (2) how instructors can increase students' use of lecture capture materials. We address these questions using data from an undergraduate Operations Management course at a mid-size, public university. Results indicate that access of lecture capture videos is associated with higher exam scores, even after controlling for previous exam performance. In addition, efforts to promote the use of lecture capture materials increase their use. We offer several suggestions to instructors who wish to increase their students' use of lecture capture materials, which are equally applicable across all disciplines.
