Class Video Recording

Common reasons for making a video of a class include

  1. Sharing it with students – for review or when people have to miss class
  2. Improving your teaching
  3. Building a teaching portfolio

An instructor of record may arrange for a videographer from ND Studios to record a scheduled session of a daytime academic class at no charge. Use this for self-examination or to document student presentations.

The Kaneb Center offers a Collaborative Teaching Reflection service. First, a videographer records one class session, then a Center staff member observes a different session and reviews course materials, including the syllabus. In the last step, faculty member and Kaneb staffer meet to discuss what is working, as well as potential areas for improvement.

Lecture capture

The university can’t provide enough videographers for multiple courses to record a semester’s worth of class sessions. As an alternative, Notre Dame has explored lecture capture technology and equipped a few spaces especially for this purpose. The OIT can also install Panopto software on any classroom computer, allowing you to capture the computer screen and record audio.
