Advanced capture technology has become almost ubiquitous in higher education: If an institution does nt have it, chances are that it is trailing the competition. Students want it. Tech-savvy teaochers like it. And blended learning environments practically demand it. The most commonly touted benefit of these systems is that they are student centered. Capturing, indexing, publishing, and storing class lectures in online repositories, vendors say, provide students with a resource that improves learning outcomes. But one rarely hears about the effect this technology is having on the people "in front" of the camera. Has lecture capture changed the way instructors teach? And, if so, has it improved the quality of their teaching? In this article, faculty discuss how lecture capture is changing the way they teach, spurring in-class dialogue, and forcing them to become better instructors.
