Following on from our research project we have now released four new videos and a series of example study workflows showcasing how University of York students have embedded the use of Replay lecture captures into their regular study activity. While most use of Replay occurs during the revision window, these resources aim to encourage students to think about how Replay can support learning during term time, as an integrated enhancement to their study practice. At a fundamental level, using the captures during term time has increased the opportunity for students to engage with the lecture content a second time. Students appreciated the value of attending the lecture to get an holistic view of the lecture content, being selective in note-taking and identifying where to focus attention in private study. The captures then allowed students to target their study time, following up on new or complex concepts in a variety of ways, engaging captures through note-making.
It’s important to note that the videos and resources were inspired and based upon the experiences of real students regularly using Replay lecture captures. Not all approaches will work for all students, so the videos aim to offer a range of study techniques students may wish to try out.
We are very keen to understand the value of these resources for students. Please do share them, include them in inductions (see student page on the York website), and please do encourage students to share their feedback online:

Studying with lecture captures
This video explores the role of lecture captures for study before, during and after lectures.
Four ways students watch lecture captures
Students use Replay lecture captures in different ways: to follow up on specific concepts, to supplement gaps in notes, speed-watch the lecture, watch the whole lecture again.
Making the most of your lectures
This video emphasises the importance of attending the lecture and making the most of the contact time with staff and other students.
From note-taking to note-making
Four approaches to improving lecture note making: written notes, annotated slides, mind maps and the Cornell method.
Seven approaches using lecture captures as part of studying practice that students shared during the interviews.
