Multimedia Tools

Assessment is a critical component of any learning environment. There are various methods faculty can use to gather information on student learning and determine student progress in understanding material in a course of study. One of the key motivations for assessment is to gain insight into student learning in order to improve the quality of learning and teaching effectiveness. Seton Hall utilizes a number of tools including Blackboard to implement assessments at the course, department, school and institutional level. Listed below are some of the tools utilized by faculty and administrators to initiate and analyze assessments at all of these levels.

Lecture Capture Tools

Lecture capture tools allow you to record lectures as you deliver them in your classroom for later replay, or you can pre-record sessions for online delivery. They are very helpful in allowing students to review content, and can be used to deliver content for online courses and for face-to-face classes when a meeting is not possible due to weather or other scheduling conflict. For more information about recording classroom lectures on campus, contact Media Services at media.services@shu.edu.
