The College of Science Video Studio is designed to assist faculty and staff in the creation of engaging educational video for students. The studio’s centerpiece is a lightboard, a glass “chalkboard” equipped with built-in LED lights and originally designed by Northwestern University’s Michael Peshkin to allow users to combine traditional slide presentation with writing additional notes and diagrams while facing the audience to enhance virtual learning. This engaging way to record lectures and other types of instructional presentations is especially useful for technical fields such as mathematics, chemistry, and engineering.

The studio, which is staffed by a full-time coordinator with experience in both video production and animation, can provide a range of options to create the most effective video for each faculty member’s particular needs, including animated clips, interviews, on-location recordings, and demonstrations.

See example studio-produced videos on how we learn and trigonometry.
