Russ Lichterman, Wilmington University's Multimedia Manager, http://wilmu.edu/multimedia, shares how to build a portable multimedia lab on a budget.
Today’s students want dynamic course content – and the best way to deliver it is via video. Scholarly research shows that students get are more engaged and grades improve when they consume video and multimedia content created by their instructors. Unfortunately smart classrooms, multimedia workspaces, and television production studios don’t come cheap. Often our technical wants are bigger than our available budgets, and video and multimedia equipment choices can be intimidating. Further, lack of specific technical experience can lead to all-in-one solutions that are feature-limited and not cost effective. This “un-session” will be a hands-on demonstration of Wilmington University’s portable multimedia lab – a multi-input HD video production solution for guest speakers, high end lecture capture, event production, and more. The modular components, HD workflow, and equipment procurement will be covered, and include a frank and open discussion about costs and budgets, and how to save money by understanding video and multimedia technology better. This session will be as open as possible for the layperson, but some technical knowledge about video and multimedia will be helpful.
