Berkeley will keep on doing lecture capture, just not for the rest of us:
- We will no longer make recorded lecture videos available to the public
- We will make recorded lecture videos available to enrolled students via CalCentral and bCourses
They’re still proud of what they used to do, as they should be:
For the past 20 years, recorded lecture videos have been available to students as well as the public. In more recent years the Webcast Classroom Capture program has broadened the window of access into UC Berkeley’s intellectual riches through distribution partnerships with YouTube and iTunes U. Each year we capture and publish nearly 4,500 lecture videos and each video requires an average of 15 minutes of staff time to prepare for public distribution.
But don’t worry. Berkeley’s still making MOOCs.
Once again the current economic situation damages American higher education. And open still struggles with sustainability.
