Most higher education institutions use online flexible learning management system that supports the online delivery and administration of resources, communication, collaboration and assessment. One of the main objectives of online delivery of a face-to-face unit is to embed iLecture in the learning management system. The iLectures contain the audio and the PowerPoint which enable students to learn in a mobile environment and combine working part-time with university study. But the traditional iLectures do not capture any physical demonstration of lecturer and thus students face difficulties in revision. A tablet or document camera may be used to capture the hand-writing demonstration (Derting and Cox, 2008) but it looses the PowerPoint. This causes another problem of having only one in the screen while both are needed at the same time for better demonstration of the engineering concepts. In order to solve these issues, an auto-tracking camera may be used in the lecture theatre that captures white board demonstration and at the same time it embeds with the PowerPoint in iLecture. It has been reported that many students found recorded lectures as a useful learning tool because they can use it to catch up the missed lectures and also as a revision tool for exams and assessments (Karnad, 2013).
