Unattended lecture recording: the VIDEOAPUNTES project

Carlos Turró, Jaime Busquets


Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (UPV) has developed a pilot program for automated recording of lectures called Videoapuntes during the academic year of 2012-2013. In this project we have recorded up to 36 lecture halls, from which students in the pilot courses have access to a high quality recording of the lecture comprising audio, video and the screen from the computer used by the teacher. Students access this content through the virtual campus platform. This recording has been made using the technology developed by the Opencast international consortium, in which UPV is an active member.

Results from this pilot have been very successful, both in terms of quality and the number of recordings and in terms of student feedback, with more than 85% of the students valuating this resource as helpful or very helpful. In this paper we will present the plan, the technology that we are using, and the results we have obtained from the student feedback.
