In the last few weeks we've seen the demand for a video capture, editing unit for learning and teaching materials grow at UCS. The following are two examples we'll be working on over July and August, and give an indication of the potential work we'll be doing. Clearly, there is considerable potential for transferring this to other contexts, for example, preparing induction material for distance learning courses. If you'd like to find out more about how we might be able to help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Staff introductory videos
These are short 1 minute videos from student support introducing themselves and their roles. The video's will be linked by short url and QR Code from the student services web site and physical handbook. There will be two available for each person, one in English, and one with Chinese subtitles. The shot style will be a head and shoulders, with the each question they ask (address) appearing on the screen. These will be hosted in youtube, and any rights issues are covered by covered with our usual consent form.
Student Intern, employability videos
This will be a short 4 minute video which will be used during face to face events, and embedded on their course / division web site. The short film will be a number of stories around placement students at an organisation. This will include interviews with the students (interns), previous interns, and other staff at the organisation. The final video will include recording at the place of work, and include still images with talk overs, as well as talking head type shots.
