Video transcript: 

Hi, I’m Ann Zawistoski, from the University Libraries. I’m talking to you from the O’Shaughnessy-Frey library in our brand-new video recording studio.  We worked with STELAR to design this room for students to use when they need to record videos in a professional, distraction-free way.  We also worked hard to make this room easy to use and self-serve.  Students can reserve the room easily from our website.  They can use it any time the library is open and they don’t need a lot of prior video recording experience.  I can vouch especially for that fact, since this is my first time using this room or recording a video like this (although I will admit that there have been a few outtakes). 

I also want to invite you to join us for our upcoming workshop called “Beyond books: ways of engaging your students.”  The workshop is based on the Universal Design for Learning framework and will look at how students can use this studio to create videos for assignments.  You’ll have time to explore our media collections and learn how to use transcripts and create clips.  We’ll talk about our Resource Lists service that makes readings available to students through Canvas and can even save them money. We’ll also talk about ways to integrate library materials and help into your course.
