The Learning Glass

Research shows that student engagement is higher when tools tailored to online education are used to create instructional videos. Content created with online education principles has higher student engagement than traditional lectures.

Professor Joel Watson of the Department of Economics was the first to create educational content using the Learning Glass at UC San Diego. “The Learning Glass makes it easy for faculty to transition from teaching with a standard blackboard to videotaping at high quality,” Professor Watson said.

 

Green Screen

If you normally use slides during your lectures, our green screen format is an easy transition to online videos.

If you want to film a discussion, our studio can accommodate up to three people.
