Create Studio

Recording studio

Create quality introductory videos for your subject

The use of video in learning and teaching has seen significant growth.  It is used to orientate students to a subject via introductory videos and also to engage and support students in their learning.

The Studio has been designed to help you quickly and easily produce quality recordings.

It's easy to get started

Prepare a script and rehearse
Before booking the studio download an example script (PDF, 65 KB) that highlights the key points to cover in your introductory video. Look at tips on creating an introductory video and don't forget to rehearse.

Save your final script as a word document
Upload your script via the booking form; we can preload it to the teleprompter ready for when you record.

Booking request
Contact create@jcu.edu.au to request a time to use the studio.

Confirm your booking
Once you have booked, you will receive a calendar invite from create@jcu.edu.au. Accept the invite to confirm booking.

Self service
The Create Studio is a self service recording studio with instructions in the room.

Support
If you require any technical assistance while in the room please contact VAVs.

Fashion tip
No logos or fine patterned clothing. Most videos are recorded in front of a dark-grey-screen, if using the green-screen avoid wearing greens or blues. If wearing a lapel mic (small mic that clips on to you) take care that your clothing or jewellery is not knocking against it.

Videos in Panopto
When you finish recording, the video will be posted to the designated Subject Video Library (with Panopto), from there, you can bring your media into LearnJCU as described in the 'Share your videos' guide.

Edit videos
You can use the Panopto Editor for minor edits of your video.

Add videos to LearnJCU
Use the 'Add video to content area' or 'Embed video into Ultra Doc' guide.
