16% of instructors report wanting to improve their Asynchronous Content to Complement In-Person Teaching
Improving asynchronous course content can support instructors having more effective and engaging in-person class meetings.
Record lectures to be watched at home so that in-person time can be fully leveraged for discussions and collaboration.
Lecture recordings can help instructors teach more efficiently over semesters:
- If lectures are used in more than one class or across semesters, instructors can focus more on interacting with their students
- Recording content that is core theory to the course allows instructors to tailor in-person discussions on contemporary issues that change and may be more exciting and meaningful to students.
