Video Lecture Capture in Engineering Classrooms with Free Open-Source Software ToolsTeaching and creating education content through the use of tablet PCs have gained popularityamong the engineering faculty. When screen capturing video tools are combined with tablet PCfeatures, it becomes a much more promising technology to increase teaching and learningperformance in both traditional and online courses. Advantages of using tablet PCs runningWindows operating system and commercial screen capturing software have been reported bymany educators in the last few years. However, the availability and use of free open-sourcescreen capturing video tools have not received much attention. Recent developments in userfriendly open-source applications offer quite appealing alternatives to tablet PC users inrecording lectures and making the video files available for students’ use. This article offers areview of free open-source software tools available for Tablet PCs running Linux operatingsystem, and a summary of lessons learned from the teaching experience of three civilengineering technology courses in a traditional classroom with a tablet PC and free screencapturing video tools.
