Resources for Using Video Media

Hello CIC Instructors!

Though many instructors have started using Panopto to capture lectures or draft presentations, we wanted to share a couple of the other resources that are available for students to construct less formal projects, like filming a documentary or commercial advertisement.

This post is inspired by CIC Instructor Jacki Fiscus, who has had great success in her 121 using video media and other forms of multi-modality (assignment provided below!). When her students were wondering about resources that they might use to film and edit a documentary, we found a few links to share:

Equipment

– The Odegaard Learning Commons has video editing workstations; moreover, all machines in that space have iMovie: http://www.washington.edu/itconnect/learn/technology-spaces/odegaard-learning-commons/softwarelist/

* Odegaard has a new video studio students can reserve:  http://www.washington.edu/itconnect/connect/conferencing/services/video-studio-in-odegaard-320/

Training

– UW-IT online tutorials for using digital video authoring software available in general access computing labs: http://www.washington.edu/itconnect/learn/workshops/online-tutorials/

* Note that the CIC lab has Adobe Premiere. UW-IT staff can come to the lab and give a custom workshop during class. See the workshop guide for more information.

We’re really excited by the possibility of incorporating video composition into our CIC classes!

Here is Jacki’s excellent assignment:
