This series of short case-study presentations by academics across a range of disciplines at Loughborough will look at the practical, technical and academic issues around introducing a range of learning technologies, particularly automated lecture capture, and at whether the experience so far suggests that the application of these technologies has been effective. Presenters will focus on the impact on their workload of introducing these technologies at a time when institutions are looking for opportunities for efficiency gains.
