Using Video to Augment Classroom Topics
By Madeline Friedman
During the Fall 2014 semester, NYU IT, in coordination with the NYU Libraries, launched a new service that supports faculty in the production of instructional video modules (short, self paced media vignettes faculty create to meet learning objectives). The modules are produced in the Digital Studio, located on the 5th floor of Bobst Library, where instructional media and technology specialists are available to assist faculty with questions regarding the production and application of video to support teaching and learning objectives.
More than 183 instructional video modules were produced during the 2013-2014 Academic Year. Faculty from across the schools have taken advantage of this new service, including the School of Dentistry; College of Arts & Science; Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development; and the School of Professional Studies. Over the first year, the service was refined to streamline the production process to include five easy steps that avoid lengthy post production services. Faculty can now deliver video content to their students on the same day it is produced.
For more information about the service and the five-step design process, please schedule a consultation with a Digital Studio specialist or visit the Producing Your Own Videos at NYU website.
