Abstract

We present the Lecturus Mobile Phone based lecture recording system. Lecturus allows a group of students, connected via social networks, to collaboratively record, photograph and annotate a lecture in real time. A key motivation was to minimize attention to the recording process itself and maximize attention to the lecturer. This was achieved by A. breaking a complicated task of recording and annotating a lecture into simpler sub-tasks (recording audio, taking photos, adding textual annotations) and distributing those tasks among the participants. B. simplifying the tasks to minimize their cognitive load. C. Uploading and allowing participants to later view, manage, edit and share their recording via RESTful web services.
