Digital Video Recording by Students

The Clinic has started this semester having students use a Logitech webcam connected to a laptop to record a practice interviews/negiotations.  The students save their videos onto a flash drive and return the flash drive & the laptop/webcam to the professor.  The students at a later time, retrieve the flash drive (with videos & MediaNotes tags) and a headset, and on a lab computer,  they watch their videos and critique them using MediaNotes. (see photo below)

Is this the start of things to come?  Will other professors abandon the video tape and go digital???

BTW: We made the CALI spotlight:
