Should I Record My Class meetings? Effects of Online Videos on Student Attendance, Engagement and Performance
The present study aims to determine the relationship between providing online recordings of in-class meetings and several educationally relevant variables, such as attendance, overall performance and course evaluations. Meetings of three traditional courses were captured on the classroom computer and videos were posted to the course management website. We will discuss the pros and cons of recording meetings, the effect videos had on student engagement and the barriers that prevented or discouraged some students from viewing the class recordings.
