This small, regional school on 150 acres of rural land overlooking the Rio Grande Valley is capturing more than 10 classes a day, streaming over 10 hours of content a day, with just 2 full time employees. The campus now provides lecture capture in almost every course, working from scratch to retrofit the infrastructure in these technology-enabled rooms to support academic webcasting.

Najib Manea, Ph.D., an Instructional Technologist and the Program Director of UNM Valencia's Teaching and Learning Center, has created one of the most prolific lecture capture programs in the U.S. for a campus this size. And he did it without overwhelming the instructional support team, sacrificing quality or negatively impacting the faculty experience in the classroom.


Najib Manea, Ph.D., is Instructional Technologist and the Program Director of UNM Valencia's Teaching and Learning Center. Najib received a B.S. from Yarmouk University/Jordan 1996, M.A. Extension Education 2001, M.S. Computer Science 2002, and a Ph.D. in Learning Technologies/Computer Science from New Mexico State University/ Las Cruces 2007. Current research interests include learning objects, classroom capture, and technology integration & adoption.
