The role of Screencasting in statistics courses

By Budgett Stephanie, Cumming Jocelyn and Miller Christine

Abstract

Recent advances in technology have allowed lecturers in the Department of Statistics at the University of Auckland to experiment with screencasting as a way of enhancing our students ’ experiences while studying statistics. A screencast is a digital recording of computer screen activity, often containing audio narration. This paper describes the thoughts, challenges and experiences of a group of lecturers during the transition to providing lectures on-line to a large number of undergraduate students. On-line lectures are not provided as a substitute for class attendance, but to assist students in choosing a method of learning that works for them as individuals
