Technology-based teaching approaches such as flipped classroom and blended learning are becoming increasingly common as educational technology takes root. Lecture capture is one of these approaches; and using lecture capture, lecturers either share their lessons online or make necessary changes before they are made available for review by students. However, while this application has become widespread in teaching syllabi, it has prompted further discussion concerning the pedagogical impact of lecture capture on lecturers and students, including lecturers altering conventional teaching methods during recording, the intellectual property rights of materials used during lecture capture, student absenteeism, and the impact of lecture capture on students’ success rate. This study investigated the perceptions of professors within a College of Education about their experiences and opinions regarding advantages and disadvantages in the lecture capture approach as well as their suggestions with a special focus on the pedagogical use of this approach. A qualitative research design based on the principles of the constructivist paradigm was used to explore professors’ perceptions of lecture capture. The findings indicated four themes: attendance and participation,
professional development, academic freedom, ethical/legal issues and institutional policy. The professors, in general, found the use of LC positive and useful. However, the findings suggest that the professors have concerns about academic freedom, student participation in lessons, ethical and legal issues, and institutional policy.
