Audio & Video

Audio and video content is increasingly easy to produce. It is exciting to make a rich animation explaining sound board operation or osmosis or financial calculators for students who are having trouble grasping a concept.

  • We can create these types of learning objects with you.
  • Having students create their own video essays is a great way to get them composing in a way that challenges their thinking beyond the essay format they mastered in high school.
  • Instructors quickly realize that it is more engaging and often more effective for the students to create multimedia materials for themselves, rather than the instructor creating content for them.

This section offers information on how to create, edit, and post audio and video material using various free and commercial software. If you'd like to use larger screens or professional software, these things are available in the Faculty Support Center, McEwen 215.
