What is the Self-Recording Studio?

A view of the CTI self-recording studio

The self-recording studio is a quiet location with a built-in computer and webcam for creating lecture capture recordings (Panopto), audio recordings, or conducting web conferences (Zoom). It is a great option for creating lectures if moving an in-class course to an online course or a flipped classroom model.

Instructors have the option to bring their own lavalier (lapel) microphone or to use the studio’s built-in microphone. The studio includes a web camera, a USB document camera, a Wacom annotation tablet, and a large-format (65") monitor. Additional details can be found at Mini Recording Studio and Specifications.

Why use the Self-Recording Studio?

Creating recordings or conducting web conferences in a sound proof environment can result in better quality results. A controlled background can also reduce distractions for those watching a video or taking part in a Zoom meeting.

Considerations for the Self-Recording Studio

Teaching documents and materials should not be saved directly on the computer in the studio, we recommend moving the files to your own drive or download content to a portable storage device (USB drive).
