This technology adjunct enables the recording of very high quality asynchronous modules which will be put into the Ensemble video library of the faculty member so that they can then place that content into their Moodle classes at any time.
See below for a quick demo video of what content recorded in this space will look like:
Faculty members wishing to use this space will be assisted by a student “lightboard technician” who will assist them with the technical details of the recording aspect, perform basic edits to the recorded video (basically, cutting the video into “clips”, adding in a title at the beginning, and ensuring that the audio is good), and then upload the video to the faculty member’s Ensemble library.
Some quick recommendations for a successful experience in the Lightboard Studio:
- Arrive 15 minutes ahead of your scheduled time to maximize your recording time in the space.
- Wear dark clothes without any jarring patterns or text.
- Think about best practices for asynchronous content — even if you’re in the studio for 2 hours, you should not think of recording a 2 hour video, you should be aiming to record “modules” of maximum 10-12 minutes each. The demo video above is just under 10 minutes.
- It will create the most fluid video if you don’t need to refer to notes as every time you look away from the lightboard that will be recorded in the video.
Alternative “Stand-up set” with Teleprompter
ITS has also created a 2nd “set” in the studio space for faculty to record high quality content in front of a camera using a teleprompter for your text so that you can continue to look directly at the camera as you’re recording. You can be recorded in front of standard black studio curtains or optionally a green screen if you wish to do further processing on the video yourself.
