The Information Commons Productions Services in Hardin Library has released a beta edition of iLecture, the simple online lecture tool.
iLecture makes preparing an online lecture an easy process. Simply import your PowerPoint slides, plug in a microphone and record your narration. iLecture does the rest. It packages the images and audio, along with the individual timings for each slide, in a directory that’s ready for upload to any web server. Not only does iLecture offer convenient features to any instructor narrating an online lecture, it also makes viewing and listening to that lecture simple for students. Students aren’t locked in to a particular piece of software, particular file formats, or any specific computer platform (operating system). The online lectures created by iLecture can be viewed on any Internet connection in any web browser. iLecture is open ended, accessible and easy to use, unlike many products on the commercial market. iLecture makes the task of creating and viewing online lectures simple. Best of all–iLecture is free.
We invite you to download the beta edition of iLecture from the URL above and let us know what you think.
