DL Studio: August 2016 Online Learning Webinar

by Christine Scherer

William and Aaron hosted a webinar about uses for the studio. They demonstrated the following four features of the studio:

  • Ability to record multi-angle demonstrations
  • Capture handwriting lessons using a digitizer tablet or mini lightboard
  • Record high quality podcast audio or voiceover for screencasts
  • Replace green screen backdrop with custom graphic or setting to contextualize video

The webinar audience included local instructors who are able to visit the Chicago campus or are designing a course that will be taught on campus for Chicago campus students to do an activity in the studio. Recommendations for studio uses at this time include:

  • A short welcome video for Fall 2016 (there‚Äôs still time!)
  • Videos for Winter 2017 courses, work with your assigned learning designer to schedule a visit

Anyone who would like to view the webinar may access the BlueJeans Recording.

Non-studio video questions and activities were briefly discussed for remote faculty and a follow-up webinar in December will focus on remote video production options.
