  • WEBINAR | Does Lecture Capture and Recording Really Support learning?

    For this webinar, Sonocent’s DSA & Training Manager, Lucy Toffolo, explores whether providing students with a recording of their lectures is enough. Or is it how they work with those recordings that matter? And what value can learning technologies add to the mix?

    Date: Friday 24th March, 12:00 - 1:00 pm

    Session overview:

    Throughout the webinar, Lucy will refer to research that shows lecture recording must be integrated into effective study practises if it’s to properly support students with disabilities.

    You will hear about effective learning strategies with lecture recordings that are proven to lead to better grades, retention and student independence.

    The webinar will cover audio-centric study strategies with Sonocent software and Dragon NaturallySpeaking .
