Due to COVID-19 restrictions on movement, the DLH Media Team has developed and adapted learning media formats and the workflows for their creation to support continued production.

Both the formats and the workflows are based on the team’s experience in fully remote capture and post-production and the feedback as well as the learning generated. Resources and advice may change as more experience of fully remote media production is gained.

Media formats

Zoom video lecture

A Zoom video lecture combines a self-recorded “piece to camera” video lecture with a Screencast – Camtasia Capture. A “piece to camera” is a recording of a presenter looking straight to camera while presenting a subject. The screen capture of a slide show can then be added to the video in editing.

Infographic animation

Infographic animation

An infographic animation is well suited for introducing abstract concepts, complex dynamics and flows, a progressive process, or ideas that can benefit from high-end, constant illustration. During a remote consultation meeting, a multimedia consultant and the contributor develop ideas based on the script and discuss how it can be animated. The multimedia consultant produces a storyboard (a sequence of sketches to illustrate the scenes planned for the video) and once approved by the contributor, animation commences. It is worth noting that this is a slower, more labour intensive process requiring specialised skills.
