Are Concerns about Intellectual Property Blocking Adoption of Lecture Capture?
Everyone knows one or more of the many stereotypes in the world of academics.
Most individuals recognize the image of the absent-minded prof. Many educators are familiar with the eager beaver assistant prof who easily gravitates to emerging technologies. Still more recognize the grumpy professor with elbow patches on his jacket and pipe in mouth who looks down on the idea of bringing new technology into the classroom.
Indeed, the “grumpy” set presents a huge roadblock to introducing lecture capture, online video and other new tools into today’s learning environment. Proponents of new technology adoption need a game plan for addressing concerns from these educators on how technologies impact intellectual property issues and the way their knowledge is shared – both inside and outside of the classroom.
Typically, the grumpy professor will have two primary objections to trying new technologies:
1) I’ve never done it before, so why should I do it now?
2) Well, why should I allow my intellectual property to be archived for others to review?
