Our studio, centrally located in CMU's Park Library, allows our team to record learning objects using broadcast-quality lighting, cameras, microphones, and instructional tools. Easy to use, state-of-the-art technologies allow faculty to annotate slide presentations for digital delivery and facilitate the use of a green-screen backdrop allowing content to appear behind instructors as they teach.

The suite of autonomous instructional studios allows you to record video and green-screen content, record a podcast, create audio narration over slide presentations or software/website demonstrations, and/or layout concepts on a lightboard. Visit the instructional studios page for more details, guidance for each facility and view sample videos of created works.

Learning Media Production is available to join you on location to record video content for your course.  Whether it's a guest lecture in the classroom, demonstrations in the lab, or just a unique spot for a unique concept, our team can produce content wherever the learning takes us.

We also provide expertise in editing and sequencing various media elements for your course. If you have content that you acquired on your own, our team can use various software applications to sequence, re-time, animate, and publish your multimedia learning objects. 


The Learning Media Production Team will work with instructors to find the most effective production method for their content. We will help visualize course content from concept to final delivery. By developing a production plan, with the guidance of a course media producer, we can ensure the production elements of every course meets quality and instructional design goals.
