Abstract: As more university teachers embrace the pedagogical soundness of the “flipped” or “inverted” classroom – having students engage with course content online before participating in classroom activities – universities are also quickly equipping all classrooms with lecture capture systems. These primarily record the lecturer delivering a static lecture with slides or other A/V support. These strategies appear contradictory: If we are no longer presenting traditional lectures, what, precisely, will there be to “capture”? This session presents data regarding lecture recording activity at a large Australian University, and will suggest that the most effective use of lecture capture technology is to employ a “media production” approach aligning these learning objects to the classroom activities they support, not just recording all teaching activity. Academics must develop a sense of media performance and awareness of intended audiences when switching from lecture capture to flipped delivery.
