Advantages of LCVS Classes
LCVS Classes Can Help You Succeed!
Lecture Capture Video Streaming (LCVS) courses are an ideal course format for distance learning students, part-time students and international students – really any student who can’t be physically present in a teaching room at a given time for any number of reasons. By providing the flexibility to watch the recorded lecture from any location, whenever they like, students have much more control over their learning.
A major advantage of the LCVS format is that it provides students with access to recorded lectures they can revisit when they need to, or even allow students to catch-up on lectures they may have missed. Having a library of recorded classes that are taught each week allows students to navigate easily to search for the content they need. This is particularly useful when they have to miss a session due to illness, timetable clashes and during intense revision periods. Being able to access recorded lectures seamlessly makes it particularly convenient.
Increased Student Perception Of Support
When we ask students to complete anonymous surveys giving feedback about LCVS classes, we find the students consistently report ‘Increased student perception of support’ as a very important factor in how students see LCVS as a highly beneficial course format. The majority of students feel that having a live class where the video is recorded added value to courses. They students feel that having the flexibility to consume course information in their desired format - and on the schedule that best meets their needs - lets students feel supported through their educational journey. This is also applicable to students for whom English is an additional language, for example.
More Opportunities For Interaction During Class Time
Viewing recorded material provides more opportunities for interaction during class time. Since students can preview course material or information-based tutorials in their own time, topics are illuminated during contact time by means of debates, interaction and more in-depth exploration of themes and better quality debates.
Facilitate Interdisciplinary Research
LCVS courses also offer new flexibility for students to pursue interdisciplinary research and get a more well-rounded understanding of their subject. For example, students can access content from other disciplines to support their coursework or research and educators can collaborate with colleagues to produce multidisciplinary courses.
