Recording can improve a bad lecture! 7 surprising facts about recorded lectures

Donald Clark, Plan B, Sept 19, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I've heard it asked by more than one person why anyone would record a bad lecture. But bad lectures, writes Donald Clark, can be improved through recording them. Really? He summarizes "this wonderful little study by Pierre Gorrisen, delivered at the ALT conference":
1. Students watch lots of recorded lectures at home on their own time
2. No technical problems - we live in a YouTube world
3. Students watch lectures many times
4. Students don’t watch the whole lecture; they're smart, so they fast-forward
5. Students want ALL lectures recorded
6. Recorded lectures increase the pass rate
7. The fact that you can skip the bad bits, replay and watch it several times actually improves the experience.
