Lecture capture technology allows instructors to record presentations and make them available to their students digitally. This study examined one program's implementation of lecture capture. Participants were undergraduate college students enrolled in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management courses at a public land grant university in the Southeast. Data were collected through an online survey. A five-­point Likert scale gauged general class satisfaction and class satisfaction with using lecture capture presentations. Additionally, open­-ended questions addressed presentation length, format changes, advantages, disadvantages, and barriers or challenges. Results showed that the majority of participants were satisfied with using lecture capture presentations as part of the distributed learning environment. Furthermore, participants considered the presentations an effective and valuable part of the course materials. Identified advantages of lecture capture included (a) enhanced learning style, (b) convenience and ease, and (c) usefulness.
