Video plays an important part in education, providing you with a powerful tool to give your students a deeper learning experience maximising the impact of contact time in workshops or seminars.
The Innovation Studio provides us and our colleagues with a space that is dedicated to the production of high-quality multimedia resources – either self produced using the University’s Desktop Capture software or in collaboration with us using a staging area where we have a green screen and autocue.
When working with colleagues on a video project we will ensure that we always communicate clearly to ensure that the brief is clearly defined and understood, and to ensure the project is meticulously planned prior to beginning the production phase.
Enhancement and Innovation Team have produced video resources in a range of styles – from simple talking-head videos filmed in a range of environments, to animated videos featuring bespoke illustrations created in-house and in response to a specific brief.
The below portfolio items showcase the range of skills we have within the team – if you would like to discuss collaborating on a video based project please contact us.
This short instructional video was produced by Enhancement and Innovation team in collaboration with Student Education Service. The animated video was produced in-house, including all illustrations; a colleague in Student Education Service provided the voiceover which was recorded by Enhancement and Innovation in the Innovation Studio in Charles Thackrah. The resulting product replaced existing text based advice to students in each module on Minerva, and was accompanied by a printable transcript designed to be consistent with the video (with illustration elements added).
This short piece formed part of a larger collection of videos, the brief of which was to introduce the six Student iPad Representatives that were recruited for the 2016/17 academic year to their fellow students. The video aimed to communicate which Division the student represented, their advice on specific applications that can be utilised within the HE context, and their early experiences of the Business School and Leeds itself.
To introduce our academic colleagues to the Innovation Studio we offered them the opportunity to gain a high-quality video resource with very little effort. Our ‘One-Click Module Introduction Videos’ project required a Module Leader to create a short introduction to their module, and then come to the studio to deliver that introduction to camera. Enhancement and Innovation then applied University idents and colouring based on the Business School’s visual identity, and uploaded the resulting video to the Virtual Learning Environment.
