The desire and need for remote access to education has increased dramatically during the coronavirus pandemic, and it’s only a question of what changes will remain in the future. Programs have begun to consider changes and approaches that should be pursued. This commentary advocates that the use of lesson capture (LC) as a teaching delivery strategy is no longer just an adjunct to learning, but is now a standard of practice in teaching the professions of science. health. LC creates equity for students by providing them with additional opportunities to review material. Students can balance school work and employment, take care of their children or pay for groceries. LC allows students to acquire information at lower levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy at a time that fits their schedule, at a pace that suits them, and in a method that can best meet their learning needs. Students entering pharmacy school at this time learned from audio/video media (eg, YouTube, Ted Talks, podcasts) and non-traditional educational competitors (eg, Khanh Academy, Coursera, MasterClass). Students have become accustomed to learning through media technology and do so regularly in their daily lives. Students desire LC because it gives them the opportunity to review unclear, complicated, or missed concepts as part of the study process. Although its use is flexible, like any tool, LC should not be used in all situations. The pros and cons of LC for students, faculty, and institutions are described here.
