Learn about Studio U, the self-service video and screen capture studio for faculty and staff use


Studio U is a free-to-use resource for the campus to support the creation of video content for instruction and academic programs. With simple push-button controls, you’ll be able to record green screen, learning glass, screen annotation or other kinds of videos. Once finished you will walk away with a USB thumb drive containing a completed video you made all by yourself.

Studio U Features

Studio U was designed to address the typical video recording needs on campus. Using just the control panels in the room, you can create:

  • Green Screen videos with several options for displaying slides/screen content and on-screen annotations
  • Interview videos with a curtain backdrop with up to 3 people standing or seated
  • Learning Glass videos for delivering engaging chalkboard-style content

All videos are recorded directly to a USB thumb drive. Within moments of stopping your recording, you’ll be able to walk away with a video file that is ready to post to a course website or online video platform, or that can be edited using standard video editing programs.
