His role is to promote and celebrate the educational use of active learning and lecture capture with Echo360, whilst also exploring how the platform can meet changing demands from learners, and evolving teaching and learning practices. 

Stepsphen has worked in education for over 20 years, initially as a teacher in the compulsory school sector, and then in Higher Education as a developer of innovative online programmes. He has particular experience in curriculum design and development to meet the needs of learners in the workplace and the use of inquiry-based approaches to learning, and patchwork text as a form of assessment. He has developed and managed numerous projects in higher education working with colleagues to develop new taught provision and improve institutions educational systems and processes using action research and systems thinking.


According to a recent survey of UK HEI’s, lecture capture has now been adopted in over 80% of institutions (UCISA 2016 – Much of the demand is driven by students, and understandably so, as it is a valuable support for note-taking, revision and learners with special educational needs, though coverage across subject disciplines remains fragmented. Capture technologies have been continuously evolving over the past 15 years to improve the quality of audio-visual capture, the instructor in-class experience, and how students can interact with recordings, but how can these support a new demand for flexible access and improved student engagement?

This TweetChat will explore how the next generation of capture technologies, featuring polling, social interactions, and analytics, can be best adopted for active learning in lectures, flipped learning, blended in-class learning, and distance learning. Fans of lecture capture, skeptics and agnostics alike are invited to share their thoughts!

Stephen Powell (Manchester Metropolitan University) and John Couperthwaite (Solutions Engineer, Echo360 EMEA) will lead this #LTHEChat session.​
