    Depending on the length of the lecture and how much memory the tablet has, I would think that would hog up alot of memory no?

    Good points.

    The lectures are 2 hours long divided into hourly sessions.

    For me it would be an amazing way to review a lecture, even though the video part does not add much to the sound, it somehow it makes it much more interesting to follow when reviewing.

    I use "Tape-a-Talk" for all of my audio recordings. If the device has a good mic., you should get a good recording. I use this app a lot with meetings and stuff.

    I would think to do so you'll want a large memory card (possibly 2 to swap in and out between the sessions) and some sort of tripod stand. You will probably want a way to plug it in. Otherwise any video recording app should be fine to record it.

    I would be concerned with the heat generated by the camera itself, try videoing something with your phone for a whole and see how much or heats up. Video cameras are cheap.

    I'm sure a tablet can record many of hours of video, assuming it's got enough storage and battery power(in the absence of another power source).

    IMO you should be thinking about, can you hold a tablet steady for an hour at a time? Can you fasten it to a tripod, or something else that's solid?

    OK so you're going to have it properly set up. I envisaged you trying to hold the tablet up in your hands for an hour or so. :D

    lectures are just dumbed down version of your text book, unless you are one of those students who never read textbooks, I don't find any reason to video tape the lectures...?

    I take photos of answers to tutorial questions that's all.
