Faculty, you may also wish to read the
Faculty Jump Start.
Simply put, Lecture123 allows instructors to present/record sessions with
voice, PowerPoint and whiteboard slides, and annotations. Publish the
session for collaborative playback on the web, anytime, anyplace.
Students click to ask questions during playback. Questions with
instructors' answers are seamlessly integrated into the original
presentation benefiting all participants. All content including slide
and questions/answers (QA) is searchable, e.g. as a study tool.
The Lecture123 product suite includes: (a) Presenter program to present,
record, and publish content; (b) web content management, usage
monitoring, search, and delivery platform; (c) Player with streamed
playback and collaboration; (d) podcasted content delivery, e.g.
for playback on audio and video iPods.
