Video & Media

While media is integral in our personal lives and the lives of our students, it's also never been more important to our instructional and communication goals. Our expert team can help align your objectives with the proper video tools and techniques making it easy for you to quickly, effectively, and clearly engage the widest audience possible.


Educational Video Examples

There are many different styles of videos you can create for teaching and learning. Each has its own strengths and drawbacks. Here are a handful of examples to spark your thinking, but don't be limited by these. You can mix and match these formats or invent something else that fits the idea you are trying to convey. View the examples.

Lecture capture

Modern students and audiences want the ability to reexamine content. SPH ICS captures hundreds of hours of lectures every week, simply and reliably.

Flipped classes

“What is the best use of my face-to-face class time?”  - Jon Bergmann

The flipped classroom model asserts the importance of using class time for active learning and application instead of information dissemination. Using video and other learning technologies allows for the creation a more personalized and self-paced learning environment. Our team can meet with you to help plan and co-create media content to meet your teaching goals.

Class introduction videos

Short videos featuring the professor or GSIs can be perfect for providing an introduction to the class or specific topics and concepts. They add a personal touch and are especially helpful for distance students or instances where you are not able to be physically present.

Web/video/phone conferencing

Whether you want to teach distance students, bring in a guest speaker, or collaborate at a distance, web conferencing is a great tool to create a rich education environment. SPH ICS has dedicated video conference rooms and equipment to make your next web conference experience seamless.
