Faculty Comments

The following comments were taken from an East Bay Replay Lecture Capture Survey:

  • “It is the best technological advance in the classroom. I hope more classrooms get equipped.”
  • “The system required only minor modifications to my teaching style and I was happy to use it.”
  • “My students *loved* the east bay replay.
  • The main reason that I used it so many times was that firstly it was extremely easy to use, but secondly because they kept asking for it.
  • “When I had East Bay Replay available in my classroom, students were united in their appreciation of it. I polled them informally, and almost all indicated that they used it to study for exams.
  • It’s not a stretch to say that of all of the material that I made available to them, East Bay Replay was THE most valuable resource."
  • “In addition, the ability for me to re-use/recycle lectures that I’ve previously given is a very efficient teaching strategy. In addition, each archived lecture becomes a sort of “Best of...” resource. Grabbing an East Bay Replay lecture and posting it to Blackboard is a convenient way to present the topic.”
  • “It does not seem to impact class attendance."
  • Foreign students seem to appreciate it most. On one occasion I had a couple of panicked students when it did not record properly. That says it.”
  • “It was great for students who missed classes because they were travelling on work, and for all students to review material for the exams. It was not intrusive so did not hamper my teaching. I would like the opportunity to use it again.
  • “The materials were always available on Blackboard right away and easily accessible for my students.“
  • “I look forward to recording more lectures in the future “
  • “East Bay Replay … required little time and effort on my part.
  • This is the greatest tool I have ever seen (next to the ELMO doc cam).
  • The students, even when using Replay, attended lecture in the usual numbers. They told me they used Replay to check their notes. This is a fantastic tool, please expand to all lecture rooms.
  • “With regard to having the lectures posted, it is a big help. Not only can I refer students to worked-out problems that I have posted in written form, I can also refer them to particular lectures where I describe how I am solving similar problems. Also, when students miss lectures, I can always tell them to watch them online and ask if they have any questions.
  • As a professor of classes between 150 - 250 students over the past two years, being able to help students help themselves with readily available materials on BB has been key. “
  • “My general impression from the students was that it was very convenient for them to use and they liked having it available after lectures… overall I think it worked well with the course. I would use it again in the future for large lecture classes.”
  • “I am a strong advocate of making EB Replay more broadly available and can document that students find EB Replay to be an important tool in their learning.
  • I would experience a substantial reduction in the quality of my course if EB Replay were to vanish!”
  • “We love East Bay Replay. We plan on continuing using this strategy as long as it is available!”
