Replacing DVD/VHS & Doccam in the classroom
All of our classrooms are currently outfitted with the above equipment in addition to hookup for a laptop. Some have suggested simplifying our classroom setup by just using an apple tv and ipads. For some faculty, I’m sure this would indeed be a simplification and improvement, but for the digital have-nots and for our support team it seems it would be a larger burden. Someone has to convert the DVD/VHS/paper documents to digital format and make those accessible on an ipad. I don’t see the faculty doing that, and I don’t see us with the necessary labor to do it for them.
What have other institutions done in the classroom? Have any of you gotten rid of DVDs and doc cams?
On a related note, does anyone know of a service that will provide licensed clips from movies (yes, I’ve heard of youtube!)?
