Studio 102 at NMU

Studio 102

Extended Learning and Community Engagement, the Center for Teaching and Learning, along with Broadcast and AV services have created Studio 102.

Funded in part by the Distance Education fee, Studio 102 is space for Online Media Production.  This recording space is set up as a quiet place for faculty to record content for online courses.  Lighting, sound, and even a lightboard have been designed for excellent recording capabilities.  A lightboard is a glass board that is internally lit and recorded through so that instructors can write on it while making ‘eye contact' with their audience.

We have also recently added e-Glass.  This is similar to the lightboard, but adds in the ability to bring in digital media from your computer.  You can have PowerPoint slides, images, and even websites integrated into your recording.

The room is set up with a recording area and is acoustically treated.  There is also an editing computer for preparing videos to share with students.

Please contact the Center for Teaching and Learning to set up a more in-depth tour of the room or to use the facilities.



What is a lightboard and how does it work?  Watch Dan Kill demonstrate.
