Yes we thought about it. Several problems and difficulties come to mind. Number one, have you ever watched a poorly shot training program? I have, and its not fun and in most cases difficult to follow. Filming is very important and a single fixed camera in most cases will not cut it. Two; miking the instructor is fine but remarks or questions from the students is difficult to pick up. Three; even more difficult would be sessions that are hands on or mockups are involved. Four; it would probably take 3-4 camera's with mutliple mikes involved to get the angles and images including classroom response. Fifth; editing of all of the video shot to make one presentable video or dvd. One simple two hour session would probably take about 40 to prepare. Sixth; multiply the fact that at any given time during the session period that 5 other sessions are being held.
Logistics, very difficult. 18-24 camera's and operators required times three or four sessions per day. It's a task that we're just not ready to attempt yet, from a manpower or equipment standpoint.
Oh yeah, forgot about another point. Some of the instructors will be presenting copyrighted materials and when that happens, usually a high cost is involved for distribution purposes.
I hope this answers your question and if you have any suggestions we would be willing to listen and possibly take them into consideration for future events.
