Multimedia

Enhance your courses with a variety of multimedia. Whether you would like to use video lectures for a flipped classroom, podcasts to highlight guest speakers, or learn do-it-yourself techniques for authoring multimedia, the Teaching and Learning Centre provides support through our multimedia developers for all teachers on campus.

We can work with you to:

  1. Train you how to create your own online content
  2. Discuss how we can make a multimedia project for you

INSTRUCTOR EDITED VIDEOS

If you prefer to learn how to develop your own videos, we can teach you how to use:

  1. KALTURA - an extension inside of our learning management system where you can create a basic lecture with minimal editing.  It allows you to capture your screen, writing, voice, and face on your webcam while delivering your content.
  2. CAMTASIA - software that allows you to capture your screen, writing, voice, and webcam to create online content.  
  3. STUDIO RECORDING - We have a small studio space with professional lights, cameras, and audio equipment that you can book.

The above three types of content do not require a project initiation form.

If you are not sure whether to use Kaltura or Camtasia, below is a chart comparing the two screen capturing methods:

MULTIMEDIA DEVELOPER EDITED VIDEOS

Below is a list of different types of videos we have done in the past:

  • Guest lecture
  • Interview
  • Lab instruction
  • Tour
  • Simulation
  • Event
  • Creative

The more shots, graphics, and locations needed, the more time it will take to complete the project. If you prefer to plan a video, and have the multimedia team work on it for you, you will need to submit a project initiation form.  


MULTIMEDIA DEVELOPER CREATED INTERACTIVE TOOLS

We can also help you develop interactive tools like a learning module or interactive diagram.  The software we use is called Captivate.
