Multimedia can help communicate concepts and ideas for scholarship and teaching. We can assist with content development for teaching, scholarship, and research through creating or enhancing imagery, animation, 3D renderings, video production, and more.

Video Production Services

ATS can support the recording of special guest lectures, events, or presentations for student groups or departments. We can also assist with the planning, recording, and editing of lecture material for flipped, blended, or online courses. Additionally, free training on basic camera functionality is provided to teaching assistants (TA) or other faculty-approved assistants to record their own events. However, AV technicians may be available to record an event taking place outside of a scheduled class session for a fee. Additionally, ATS has launched a OneButton Studio for simple do-it-yourself video production for faculty and students.
