Why You Might Use the Studio

  • Explain a topic with a personal touch.
  • Record a video introduction for an online class.
  • Make a presentation for class.

How You Can Use the Studio

  • IMPORTANT: Bring a flash drive with you to save your recording.
  • At your confirmed time slot, ask a Service Desk TA in the Learning Commons to unlock the room for you.
  • When you are finished, take your flash drive and let the TA know you are done.
  • Unless your video is for personal use, we highly recommend that you allow the Center for Instructional Design & Technology to add closed captions. IDT can also edit your video created for academic purposes.
