Digital technology has provided new ways to engage with learners. You can now reach your students online through videos, animations and screencasts, creating richer experiences for everyone. Below are some types of digital assets you can use to create engaging and stimulating learning experiences.
The Transformation Team, in close collaboration with the DLH Media Team, has developed and adapted learning media formats and workflows based on their experience in remote capture and digital post-production. If you are interested in creating digital assets for your module, please email us. Depending on your needs, we will arrange a workshop to discuss your requirements in more detail.
A screen recording is a self-recorded piece of your screen.
A screencast is a video recording of everything that appears on your computer screen. You will be able to record audio as well as any other visuals that may appear on it, such as images, presentations, software and webpages.
A podcast is an audio recording of a contributor’s lecture which can be edited.
On location video
We can help create video assets to support the teaching of your module.
We can help create on location video assets to support the teaching of your module. This includes videography of labs, practicals, and walkthroughs.
Infographics and animations
Infographics and animation are well suited for introducing abstract concepts
Infographics and animation are 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.
