Educause - Lecture Capture Systems: Are They Worth It?

They seem to be using Media Site and Tegrity and retention improves but
sadly no data on whether the systems are accessible. We have used Impatica
and Camtasia and even Wink and Camstudio in conjunction with other software
to produce multimedia outputs, but accurate simultaneous transcription
remains the main issue.

I am wondering if anyone has tried CaptionSync?

Best wishes E.A.

>From what the salespeople said these systems are being used by may schools.

So to be more specific in my request. We are looking at Panopto, Echo 360,
Media Site, Apple Podcast Producer, Tegrity, Accordent to be used for
lecture capture at our university. I have been asked to get more
information on them and how accessible they are.

Are there others that we should look at?

Have you used any of these systems? What are the concerns for their use by
our students?
