Northern Iowa Automates Classroom Capture
The University of Northern Iowa, like a large number of universities in recent months, is deploying a classroom capture system to record lectures and make them available via the Internet. This one, though, is being used not only to provide access for UNI's students but also for an audience of K-12 teachers who will use the content to further their professional development.
The system, initially deployed in the College of Natural Science, Sociology and Behavioral Sciences and the College of Education at UNI, as part of two grant programs funded through the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense.
In the case of the former, UNI is providing K-12 education and certification through its Center for Education in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. In the case of the DoD-funded program, UNI is providing distance education to provide certification in math for teachers stationed at United States military bases around the world. Learners have been able to watch lectures, participate in chat sessions, and send e-mails to instructors during the live lectures.
