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
Complete the booking form to request a time to use the studio.

Confirm your booking
Once you have booked, you will receive a calendar invite—from—with the date and time. Accept the invite to confirm.

Arrive at the Create Studio early
A Student Digital Assistant will meet you there to let you in and show you around.

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.

A Student Digital Assistant will be available in or just outside the studio to offer assistance or answer any questions you may have.

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.
