Video Works

VideoWorks in Building 29 on the Wagga Campus

A new facility in Wagga is being piloted to help academic staff across the campus develop high quality videos.

VideoWorks has been set up in Room 110 in Building 29 by the Learning Resources Unit (LRU) in DLT, and provides a small studio to record high quality video resources with ease.

The facility is equipped with a backdrop, professional microphones and studio lighting to ensure you look and sound your best. The system uses a high definition camera and records right into Panopto, capturing both video and screen capture - so you can present any material on screen or just record a talking head. Panopto provide simple editing tools and it’s built right into your subjects, ensuring that publishing resources out to students happens at the click of a button. And you can do that all from the comfort of your desk. Simply come into VideoWorks, record and once you’re done you can edit and publish from your office.

This facility is a pilot and is aimed at making professional quality video production more accessible to staff. If it is successful, it will provide a model to roll out to other campuses.

So any interested staff, please come along, sign up for an induction session and we can have you up and running in no time!
