Media Development

Our team collaborates with L&S instructors to craft captivating and effective instructional materials that empower both educators and learners.

Support often includes some combination of consultation, specialized facilities, equipment, video production, and/or digital editing. We usually begin with a meeting to better understand each project’s unique needs.

What Sets Us Apart:

Creative Excellence. Our staff strives to blend creativity with technical know-how in order to help instructors create effective and intellectually enriching content. We’re happy to share examples of recent work.

Tailored Solutions. We understand that each academic discipline has unique needs. We have a strong track record of tailoring our support to suit diverse subjects, learning designs, and levels of expertise.

Robust Technologies: We do our best to select long-lasting reliable technologies that result in appealing visuals and sonically accurate recordings.

Humility and Curiosity. We are dedicated to helping instructors realize their teaching goals with instructional audio and video. And we are always curious to understand the factors that drive creative decision-making.

Quality and Accessibility. We are committed to delivering standards-based media that leverages supported technology and can be used and reused for instruction in L&S credit courses.
