LectureMonkey Pilot for Professors

As an educator you are always looking for new, proven ways to help your students learn. Recent studies have shown that lecture recordings increase grades and enhance understanding. Not surprisingly, access to recorded lectures for review is very popular with students; even to the extent they prefer recorded lectures to class notes.

LectureMonkey is an iPhone platform for lecture capture for students, by students. There is no need for training, equipment, extra work or special preparation. All you need to do is give your lecture as usual, letting students use LectureMonkey to automatically capture all the important content through images and audio. Students can also add their own bookmarks and comments to the lecture.

Captured lectures are stored on a student’s smart phone and in their personal DropBox™ for playback and review. Lectures are not video and can be viewed only through the player in the app and www.lecturemonkey.com, keeping lectures safe from mass distribution on sites like YouTube™ or Facebook™.

With LectureMonkey, you can easily have lecture capture enhance your students learning experience for all your lectures, and in every classroom. LectureMonkey is a simple way to give your students the benefits of easy access to recorded lectures for review before a test or as a study aid (e.g. reversed classrooms).

We are looking for students and lecturers for a pilot. It is an opportunity to use the latest technology to enhance learning and get LectureMonkey for free.

If you have an iPhone and a DropBox™ account, it is easy to be part of the pilot:

1)     You and your students should download the latest version of LectureMonkey from the iTunes app store (search for LectureMonkey).

2)     Register for LectureMonkey (using the app) using your school email address. Every email registered during the pilot will receive free lifetime access to LectureMonkey. Only students recording must have an iPhone – everyone else can use the LectureMonkey website.

3)     We’d love to hear your feedback and comments at info@lecturemonkey.com (not a requirement for pilot participation).

Hurry up, pilot registration is open for a limited time only!
