Abstract

Technological improvements in hardware and software now permit the easy recording of lectures in either audio and / or video via screencasting. More universities are taking advantage of this by making lectures available in digital formats using software such as Lectopia (2008) and Camtasia (Techsmith, 2008). However this technology can be used to support learning in other areas including student feedback, the vicarious observation of dialogues, responses to student questions, and administrative issues. This paper uses a teaching and learning framework as a basis for discussing how screencasting and audio can support learning. It outlines the practical issues for instructors and students and provides suggestions for making the best use of these current technologies. Some of the qualitative feedback from online surveys that have been carried out with students at a university in Australia is utlised to support the discussion.
