UPDATE: The Science Self-Recording Room has been removed from service as of 1 August 2019. This article is for information only.

CIT has partnered with the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences to develop Self-Recording Rooms at the respective Faculties.

The rooms allow teaching staff to produce PC-based recordings in a well-lit environment which is sound-damped. The rooms are also equipped with interactive pen displays and coloured curtains which allow for simple replacement of the recording background.

A self-recording room will be launched at the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences. This is the second self-recording room, after the Faculty of Science. A roadshow and demonstration will be held on Mon 9 Feb at 1030 hrs and Tue 17 Feb at 1430 hrs.

For more information about the roadshow and demonstration, please contact the FASS AV Support Unit.

To facilitate recording of video lectures for flipped classrooms and internal blended learning online courses (iBLOCs), CIT and the Faculty of Science have created a self-service recording room at S16. The room is equipped with equipment to allow teaching staff to create videos of their own.

Two other rooms are being planned at different Faculties and Schools.

This semester, Chinese New Year will result in two days of lost lectures. This need not be the case. Using tools made familiar to you during previous eLearning Weeks, you can record lectures which your students can view at their leisure.

Pre-record a webcast
The simplest option is to pre-record your webcast. You can use the webcast request form to arrange to have your lecture recorded before the holiday and have it made available for viewing during and after the holiday.

Use Breeze
If you want to do-it-yourself, you can use Breeze (creation on Windows and PowerPoint only, viewing on Win/Mac/ Linux with the Flash Player plugin installed) to create standalone online presentations with audio narration, simple quizzes and interactivity. This will be available online to your students as a Flash-based presentation.

Use screen recording
Not using Windows or PowerPoint? Need to display a website or to demonstrate software? You can use screen recording software instead. Think of it as a virtual camera pointed at your computer screen. CIT provides Camtasia Relay and Ink2Go! for screen recording purposes. Both allow you to record your screen while you narrate. Camtasia Relay creates an online video while Ink2Go! creates a video file which should be uploaded to the Multimedia Bank in IVLE.
