As a consequence of this demand for flexibility, many universities have introduced web-based lectures, comprising learning tools which integrate sound and images and are designed to digitally record lectures for subsequent delivery over the web (Collis & Moonen, 2011; Gosper, Green, McNeil, Phillips, Preston, & Woo, 2008, von Konsky, Ivins, & Gribble, 2009).
Since students on the different courses were each provided with web-based lectures for different application scenarios, as shown in Figure 3, this study is conducted as a case study design to investigate students' expectations by means of an intake questionnaire (pre-test) and students' perceived benefits for learning by means of an exit questionnaire (post-test).
When using web-based lectures for this purpose, students experienced no technical problems (M = 5.33, SD =1.15, t(116) = 10.76, p < .001) and reported strong picture quality (M = 5.32, SD = 1.17, t(116) = 12.60, p < .001) and sound quality (M = 5.18, SD = 1.87, t(116) = 12.30, p < .001).
"The programme, which will have open lectures for
the general public and some for women only, will focus on an array of issues Muslims need to know about in their daily life affairs, particularly in the light of Quran as a guidance to humanity."
In some cases, the institution owns the content and can freely reuse the lectures for
its own purposes.
ISLAMABAD , July 26, 2011 (Balochistan Times): The National Press Club (NPC) has planned a series of lectures for
enhancing the skill of especially young journalists.
Moreover, given that teachers use CLP to signal important lecture content (Maddox & Hoole, 1975; Scerbo et al., 1997) and use the contents of lectures for
developing tests and quizzes (Putnam et al., 1993), it would seem likely that CLP often form the basis of many test questions.
Students favored lectures for efficiency and directing learning, while PBL was endorsed for breadth of learning and enhancing interpersonal skills.
Since students experienced traditional lectures for their basic science education in their first year of medical school and PBL for their second year of basic science curriculum, the second part of the questionnaire focused on students' comparisons of the two strategies in terms of achieving various educational goals.
There was less consensus on the relative effectiveness of PBL versus lectures for giving students a sense of what they need to know.
The instructor delivered 100% of the critical points delineated in the lectures for
each of the class sessions.
The initiative of using video capture in Electronics course lectures for
electrical and computer engineering students at the American University of Sharjah (AUS) started back in 2009.
"The tools are integrated into the software, so that someone like me who is not a video expert, nor a designer, can make good-looking presentations within a matter of minutes." The center's staff is already repurposing the medical lectures for
