Lightboard Videos

The Lightboard is an innovative tool that allows instructors to write while still facing their students. Using high-tech interior glass lighting, presenters can utilize whiteboard markers to draw on a glass canvas, allowing faculty to create engaging visuals that will help drive home instruction. For more information, please visit our Lightboard info page.

Video Production

High-quality video production using cameras, lighting, and microphones is offered by the Digital Studio. We are able to record and edit informational and educational videos that can be published online for the world to see. NOTE: The Digital Studio does not create promotional content, and does not provide support for recording video conferences.

Interactive Modules

The Digital Studio can create engaging interactive module to enhance your course content. These interactive modules serve as enhanced powerpoints, presenting important learning topics that include an elevated level of involvement for the student as well as creative assessment practices. For examples of previous modules we have created, refer to our Projects page.

Podcasting

All three of our Digital Studio locations have the ability to record and edit podcasts. We can also create intro audio, and add music to your podcasts.

Video Editing

We can provide assistance for editing video or audio that you have captured with a personal device. This type of editing can include graphics and animations, combining videos, and much more. NOTE: A Digital Media Developer is happy to help teach you how to edit in Panopto, but will not edit your Panopto videos for you.

Consultation/Training

If you have an idea for a project, but are not sure what might be the best option, please schedule a consultation to talk about your idea with a Digital Media Developer. Additionally, we are happy to provide personalized training and support for any of the media creation technology that we utilize in our studio.

FACULTY TESTIMONIALS

"The crew at the Digital Studio have completed a number of exceptionally large and complex digital projects for the University Libraries. This digitization work will help us to provide long-term preservation of and access to valuable resources. Their technical knowledge of digital file formats and their specifications, and their ability to troubleshoot issues with the capture of analog media assure us that they will take good care of our media. We highly recommend the Digital Studio to anyone on campus looking for a digitization service, or to anyone just looking to learn the ins and outs of digital files."

- Max Eckard, Mary Idema Pew Library

"This semester I had the pleasure of working with Justin Melick, digital media developer, on a read-aloud video for the Economics portion of my SST309 (Social Studies Methods) course. It turned out very well and the students who viewed it enjoyed this media alternative to using the document camera at the teachers station. The visual quality of a video is superior to the doc cam format of reading aloud to the class. I intend to use the video each semester from now on."

- Susan Laninga, History
