Daylight Responsive Code Generator

The purpose of the Daylight Responsive Video Code Generator is to create an embed code for a responsive video (a video which changes size based on the device being used to view the video) which can be inserted onto a Desire2Learn module page. By ensuring your videos are responsive, students have a positive user experience on a desktop, tablet, or phone.

One-Button Studio

The One-Button Studio allows you to create high-quality video recording without having to know anything about lighting, audio, and video equipment. Simply insert a flash drive and press a button to record yourself either with or without a slideshow or in front of a green screen. For further information and to see a calendar for scheduling purposes, visit the One-Button studio page

Located in Anderson Hall, Digital Learning and Innovation's Recording Booth is equipped with a high definition video camera, radio broadcast-quality microphone, and a dual-boot computer with commonly used recording software for both Mac and Windows. Now you can create content for your course with professional equipment and without the noise and distractions from your office or home. For further information and to see a calendar for scheduling purposes, visit the Recording Booth page.
