Create Studio

A self-service recording studio

— to help you 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 self-service recordings.

It's easy to get started

Step 1 - Prepare

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 create@jcu.edu.au—with the date and time. Accept the invite to confirm.

Step 2 - Record

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.

Support

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

Step 3 - Deliver

Videos in Mediasite

When you finish recording, the video will be sent to your My Mediasite Dashboard, from there, you can bring your media into LearnJCU as described in the Mediasite guides.

Edit videos

You can use the Mediasite Web Editor for minor edits of your video.

Add videos to LearnJCU

Use the guide to publish Mediasite videos to LearnJCU.
