Course Media Production

The Instructional Design Team offers one-on-one course media production consultations with our AV Multimedia Developer. If you have questions about best practices for leveraging multimedia for your course or how to create effective multimedia, we have resources and services to support you.

    The Learning Glass

    The Learning Glass is a presentation system which is made of clear glass surrounded by LED side lighting. It is essentially an illuminated, see-through white board. Students are able to observe the nuances of problem solving while their professor teaches facing them, maintaining the "social presence" so vital to student engagement.

    At USF, the primary use of the Glass will be for short videos of graphic demonstrations and worked-examples for online, hybrid and tech-enhanced classes. Other universities using the Glass have found it particularly beneficial with STEM subjects.

    Video is recorded while an instructor writes on the Glass with neon-colored whiteboard markers. Then, the image is flipped horizontally in a video-editing program, output to a movie file, and provided to the instructor.

    The Glass is set up in the Academic Innovation Lab in Gleeson Library, room 236. To schedule a recording session, please submit a course multimedia consultation request. We are setting aside an afternoon each month (listed below) to invite faculty to come and make a trial video for their courses. Please register here to attend an Open House session.
