- capturing generic lessons such as demonstrations, practicals, interviews with experts;
- students can use it to catch up on missed lessons;
- eteachers can use it in their appraisal process; capturing sessions for teacher pd;
- authenticating student work such as oral language presentations, & practicals that can be performed in front of VC
I think this is a great tool for our online learning toolbox but still a little ahead of our time for seamless operation with our still limited bandwidth. The biggest barrier is the huge files sizes - a 2min clip is about 35 mb. A typical VC is likely to be an hour.... you do the math.
Asnet will copy recordings to DVD & post out to schools but to realise the full potential we should be able to stream or download quickly on demand - still away off for us who in the rural remote areas (which is most of the VLN schools) are a long way off joining any high speed loops anytime soon.
