An evaluation of the use made by students of the audio recording of lectures
AbstractThe audio recording of lectures, particularly in subjects with large enrolments, offers a number of benefits to students, staff and facilities such as libraries. An evaluation of the use made by students of audio recordings of lectures revealed that students valued opportunity to listen to the lectures they had missed whilst also reducing the number of students seeking academic staff to ask questions. The ability to make copies of the audio recordings was used by students to learn away from the library which reduces pressure on library facilities. The study also revealed that few students deliberately missed lectures on a regular basis, even though they knew the lecture was being recorded. The results produced a number of insights into how students used audio materials in their learning.
