Digital Media Services
The Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning offers a variety of digital media services to faculty members to facilitate face-to-face, blended and online instruction.
Video Production and Editing Services
The Delphi Center offers professional, but limited, video production and editing services for faculty. The filming needs are to be done in-house (in the Green Screen Studio of the Digital Media Suite on the first floor of Ekstrom Library) and it must be a project in support of teaching a credit-bearing course offered at UofL. The scope of the project needs to be reasonable, as determined during consultation with the faculty member making the request.
Examples of appropriate prior video projects produced for faculty include:
- An introductory video for an online course
- A lecture with or without PowerPoint slides
- An interview with a subject matter expert
- A mock interview demonstrating effective and non-effective communication techniques
When filming is complete, a Delphi staff member will complete the basic editing (add text, graphics, backgrounds, PowerPoint slides, etc.) and upload the video to a server such as YouTube (unlisted) or a Flash Comm Server, depending on the specific needs of the video. A link or embed code will be provided to incorporate the video into Blackboard.
For large or non-academic video projects, Information Technology offers a range of video production services including conceptualization, studio and location shooting, editing and live streaming of events.
The Delphi Center will digitize video from a DVD and upload it to video servers such as YouTube or Panopto. All copyright restrictions apply. Please refer to the copyright website. We cannot legally copy an entire film or video without specific written consent. Fair Use guidelines allow us to copy a “reasonable portion” of a film for educational purposes.
Digital Media Suite
Faculty are welcome to use the state-of-the-art computer resources at the Digital Media Suite. Located on the first floor of Ekstrom Library, the DMS was created for students to work on digital assignments that are part of a course they are enrolled in at the time. Faculty can use the resources as a do-it-yourself process. There are cameras available for checkout for a 24-hour period. The eight iMacs and two PCs – all with the latest versions of all Adobe Creative Cloud apps – can be reserved and there are always tutors in the room to help users (faculty and students) how to use the software. Check their website for fall and spring semester hours. Summer availability is by appointment only.
