Trial Runs of a Flipped Classroom Using Speech-Synchronized Screen-Capture System for Students to Develop a Sense of Agency

The environment surrounding university education is changing significantly, as globalization and the spread of MOOCs (Massively Open Online Courses) enable anyone to receive higher education anywhere and anytime they want. To increase the value of education, universities must make the most of their resources. Students must also develop a sense of agency to survive in the global society. To support these needs, Fuji Xerox and the University of Yamanashi are cooperating on research aimed at improving the quality of education. By introducing a new educational style using ICT, the research focuses on educating students to help them deepen their knowledge and express their ideas, in order to develop a sense of agency by communicating with others. This paper reports the results of trial runs of a flipped classroom and active learning using speech-synchronized screen-capture technology and an internet delivery system, which showed significant improvements in performance among the students.
