How to use a QR code to capture and store lectures
Posted September 09, 2019 04:03:20 Medical researchers have created a method for capturing and storing lectures and video lectures, as part of a series of lectures that have become increasingly popular on the web.
Key points:The new method captures lectures as they are being streamed or viewed on the internetThe system can be used to track the course as it passes through schools and collegesStudents can access the lectures via the website of the University of Western Australia, which is the first in the nation to offer the new systemDr Pauline Chantin of the university’s Centre for Health Security Technology and Management, said the technique was being used to help doctors in other countries and would allow them to track and store the teaching of medical subjects.
“The goal is to make it as easy as possible to track what’s happening in the lecture, in terms of where they are going and how they’re being recorded,” she said.
“So if the teacher doesn’t want to be tracked, they can opt out of the system.”
Ms Chantins team has developed a method of capturing lectures, which allows them to be saved and retrieved at any time.
“What it does is it essentially takes a lecture, a recording, a video, and captures them as they’re coming online,” she explained.
“That gives them to us as a platform, so if a lecture goes online, and it’s a video lecture, we can take that video and we can grab it from the university system.”
“If it’s an audio lecture, and that’s a lecture on audio, we’ll take that audio, and if we’re going to take it as an image, we want to take that image as well.”
In the case of the QR code method, students can upload the lectures to a website and scan a QR Code onto it.
The system will then send the videos to the school.
Students can choose to have the lectures recorded and stored in their own system or upload them to a site like YouTube or Vimeo.
“What we can do is we can download it, we don’t have to pay for the site, and we don.
We can store it and we’re not even required to pay to store it,” Ms Chantina said.
Students and teachers can also opt to have it stored in a database, which will be managed by the school’s IT department.
Ms Chanthin said she hoped the system would also be used in Australia, where there are about 20,000 lectures being recorded daily.
“When you think of the amount of videos and lectures that we get, and how often they are viewed online, it’s really an incredibly valuable resource,” she told ABC Radio.
She said it was also likely to be used internationally in the future, given that medical students were likely to have access to it on their own websites.
