Student Perceptions 1Gareth Hall Students learning experience with Panopto Coursecast at Aberystwyth University In a student survey 98% of respondents indicated that they found lecture capture helpful in their studies. 81% of students who used lecture capture indicated that one way of helping them choose where to study in the future was if the University offered lecture capture. Over half told us that it helped them understand difficult concepts. 17. Student Perceptions 2Gareth Hall Students learning experience with Panopto Coursecast at Aberystwyth University Revise prior to exam (68%) highest usage To clarify concepts that they did not understand during lectures (63%) To make up for a missed lecture (51%) To help with assignments (35%) To review straight after lecture (19%) To help with English as a 2nd language (9%) Attendance not affected 18. Student Perceptions 3Gareth Hall Students learning experience with Panopto Coursecastat Aberystwyth University I do accounting and sometimes you go through a number of examples and write them down () they go so fast it is nice to look back and actually hear what the numbers mean () when you put the lecture capture on you can hear what she was saying cos you cant really write your notes and numbers at the same time [Focus group 1, line 177-183] You get too much information in lectures () but theyre saying a lot of stuff that is not on the powerpoints. So you have to get the powerpoint and get what theyre trying to say in one lecture. It just doesnt work. So if you listen to it [the lecture] afterwards you can go over it and over it and understand more what theyre trying to tell you [Focus group 7, lines 80-84] when you go back to revise [from Panopto] then its good to have a starting point () because if you cant remember whats happened in a lecture and you jump straight into a book, sometimes it goes straight off your head, so its good to start with something [Focus group 1, lines 226-229] its not a substitute, I dont think, its an extra resource but certainly not a substitute for going in and actually being in lecture, even if it is pre-recorded... [Focus group 1, lines 532-534] 19.
