We have some exciting news and updates to share from this 2021-2022 academic year so far. Discover how the Faculty Media Center is supporting DIY instructional media at OSU!
In Fall 2021, we launched our NEW Lightboard at the FMC Studios! Available for use by all OSU faculty and staff, the FMC Lightboard is a great tool for creating compelling, visually dynamic videos to help you effectively connect with your students. OSU Chemistry instructors Cassandra Siler and Jie Zhang integrated Lightboard learning videos in their Fall and Winter courses and both have experienced positive feedback from their students. Check out our FMC Lightboard blog post to learn more about the Lightboard and Cassie and Jie’s experience creating content at the Faculty Media Center!
FMC Client Spotlight
During Winter 2022, we had the pleasure of working with Michelle McAllaster, Head Advisor in the College of Agricultural Sciences for our FMC Client Spotlight Series. Michelle came to the Faculty Media Center seeking guidance and support for a “New Student'” orientation video. The FMC staff helped Michelle prepare for her voice-over session with some suggestions on scripting and performance. Learn more about Michelle’s project and experience at the Faculty Media Center in this fantastic video interview produced by our partners in Academic Technologies – Media Services.
New for Spring 2022! Academic Technologies now provides free access to multimedia tools with our Media Equipment Loan service. The inventory of cameras, annotation tablets, USB microphones and other user-friendly technology tools are perfect for anyone wanting to capture content “in the field”, teach from an OSU classroom, or produce just-in-time instructional content from anywhere. The media equipment checkout service is provided in partnership with AT-Media Services units the Faculty Media Center (FMC) and Student Multimedia Services (SMS).
Throughout the 2021-2022 academic year, FMC continued to partner with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) to deliver workshops focused on the effective use of media in teaching. Collaborative offerings included Tuesday Teaching + Tech Talks, “Making Content Stick!” and “Using UDL to Address How we Assess”, as well as the ongoing Teaching with Media workshop series with Cub Kahn. For Spring Term 2022, FMC is exploring a new partnership with Yvette Gibson, CTL Teaching Fellow from the College of Agricultural Sciences, to offer instructional media-focused Sparkshops that explore story design, recording video ‘in the field’, and editing for interactivity.
