The Recording rooms provide a professional look to video recordings by ‘immersing’ the presenter into the recording, making it more visually appealing to the audience.
These rooms are available to all staff on a self-service basis. All rooms have the ability to do video and audio recording. The studio at Sturt also has green screen technology, which replaces the green wall behind you with a backdrop of your choice (PowerPoint presentation, images, video, websites (live) or even Skype or WebEx calls).
No specialist skills are required to use these rooms, making high-quality professional-looking video accessible to everyone.
Benefits of using the rooms
There are many benefits to providing online videos to students in their FLO sites. These include:
- content or instructions are provided to students for review prior to face-to-face sessions, allowing for more interactive and collaborative tutorial or lecture time
- recordings can be paused and reviewed as many times as needed, suiting different learning preferences and language competencies
- provides flexibility to students in accessing learning and attendance requirements
- provides rich visual media to explain concepts to students
- are reusable for future delivery of other subjects and to other audiences.
Using the rooms for the first time
If you are unfamiliar with the room, a member of your local eLearning team can run a session in the room with you. This session should take no more than 30 minutes. Please submit a Service One request (Education > Recording room familiaristion session) to arrange this and a member of the eLearning team will book this for you at a mutually convenient time.
Tips and tricks are also available on the FLO Staff support pages.
