Do-It-Yourself studio

The Do-It-Yourself (DIY) studio is meant for creating microlectures or live presentations. The one-button approach makes it easy for a teacher to record a microlecture. Recordings are performed with no crew and no editing is needed. An easy-to-use system allows for the creation of professional-level ‘templates’ – including all the transitions, animations, titles, and animated elements. The teleprompter offers voice recognition functionality and automatically scrolls through the script in accordance with your pace of speech.   

The DIY studio is of course for creating appealing and excellent quality videos.   

From our experience, we can help you to make video’s the best possible way. There are several options to create video materials. Most of them start by creating a script and attractive visuals (without copyright issues).   

We can help to create these scripts and materials to get an optimum in time and recording investment.   

  • Costs

    The services are free of charge for lecture purposes. 

  • Preparation

    We advise first-time users to have an intake meeting where we can discuss plans, script visuals, and the number of videos that should be created.  

    Besides recording and creating we can also help you to learn and train to make videos in front of the camera. Together with the TELT-team, we have created online flipped classroom Canvas courses (https://www.utwente.nl/en/telt/solutions/Microlecture/) for creating Microlectures and/or recordings at home or in de DIY-studio.   

    After following these courses we can arrange training sessions in the studio. We know that creating your own video material works better after you have experience in actual recordings. Training sessions work best in small groups of 3 to 5 people for a couple of hours. Feel free to contact us for training and assistance.

Video storage and managing your video's

Faculties and service departments can use the LISA accounts to upload videos to the Vimeo server. LISA can upload the videos, but the account can also be shared to allow faculty staff to upload the video(s) themselves. LISA makes sure sufficient accounts and uploads possibilities are available.  

Subtitles

Due to accessibility guidelines, subtitles are required for videos on (semi-)government websites. Besides that, most people are not able to turn on their sound when they watch video's on Social Media because they keep the sound off in the office or during a train/bus ride. Therefore it's important to add subtitles to all videos. YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook let you upload separate files for subtitles, but in Instagram, they need to be included in the video. Requirements for videos on UT websites.
