Have you thought about creating media for your teaching, research, and outreach? Does limited time and money subdue your enthusiasm for creating your own media?
Now your answer to quick and quality media creation is the Faculty Media Center (FMC) in Kidder 100 on the Corvallis campus. Your colleagues are already producing a variety of media for their courses, research, and outreach at FMC. You can too!
The FMC video and audio studios have been designed for your ease-of use. This is as close to one-button production as it comes. This approach puts media capture on the level with giving a lecture or presentation. Now you can turn your lecture and presentation skills into well-made video and audio.
Here is a sample workflow for creating a mini-lecture video at the Faculty Media Center:
- Schedule a consultation with FMC staff.
- Prepare your content (text and images).
- Make and capture your presentation in the FMC studio.
- Edit your video as needed online from your office (it may not even need editing).
- Publish your video to your Canvas course.
A review of the literature on instructional video in biology (Brame 2016) shows that:
- Instructional video helps students prepare for class
- Instructional video enhances focus on key points of the content
- Instructional video may serve as an effective means to teach some content independently – Instructional video works best in the context of an overall teaching strategy.
Come experience your Faculty Media Center to see what your colleagues are successfully creating.
