FoE Digital Media Promotional Video

Our Digital Learning Specialists, Ollie Inglis and Hywel Jones, have a background in filmmaking, post-production and animation. They collaborate with academics and our instructional design team to transform module concepts into concise videos and digital solutions that clearly articulate core learning objectives. More than ever, our team is seeing staff embrace the potentialities of video and animation to support teaching and learning activities in their modules:

  • Digital media can become a valuable online revision material
  • Digital media can complement face-to-face teaching activities e.g. lab demonstrations
  • Digital media can be used in pre-sessional resources
  • Digital media is reusable and re-purposable e.g. safety or lab instruction videos can be used across year groups
