Media production for hybrid teaching

You may want help and support to produce educational videos for your hybrid teaching courses. Find out more about the supported media production studios and how you can access or use this service.

To facilitate an increase in media production for Hybrid Teaching the University has expanded its suite of educational media studios and the media production capacity/team. These centrally supported studios are available to all University staff to help in the creation of high quality media for teaching and learning, and as a digital media training space.

For further information on the studios including types of recording, location and booking information  please visit the Supported Media Production Studios webpages.

Why use Supported Media Production Studios?

The studios incorporate cutting edge presentational technologies, fully supported by media operators and producers who can work with you to develop bespoke, engaging media solutions that will assist in the delivery of effecive online teaching that meets student needs.

Our approaches and support are research-informed and pedagogically-focused, helping to ensure that you produce the most effective media for learning and teaching.

Alternative to Recording in the Studio

Before deciding to use the studios you should first consider whether you could record at home. You can create videos at home using the Media Hopper Create desktop recorder. To do this all you will need is a webcam and mic plus a reasonable broadband connection to upload content. To find out more about this option and to view guidance and training visit the below link: Media Hopper Create 

If you feel that recording media at home is not going to meet your needs, or you require extra levels of support, then you may want to consider filming in the studios
