I want to make a live studio recording
Media Services, DeC provides all faculties and departments with the ability to record important teaching tools while live web-streaming to other campuses and around the world. This is very beneficial in reaching current students or staff, but has the added value of becoming a resource available for future teaching use. For more complete instructions, refer to Using the USQ TV Studio (DOC 64 KB) which describes the process in detail, or contact staff of Media Services.
Make a plan: do not leave this until the last minute
Live studio recordings are a great tool to use, but it takes some planning to get the most out of your time and for things to run smoothly. Remember, it's live! You cannot stop and try again.
Who is my audience?
What is their demographic - age, sex, culture, socioeconomic status, educational level and prior knowledge of the subject?
What program style will meet my objectives?
The style you may want to record live can be
What will this program style involve?
Who will be involved in the video?
Length of video?
What do you want to say?
Prepare a script for what you want to say, even basic introductions or closing statements. When you are under the lights and in front of a camera, it is not uncommon to get nervous, lose your train of thought or become distracted. Do not let this ruin what would be a great teaching moment.
Are there any legal obligations?
If you are inviting non-USQ people to the presentation (either as presenters or audience) written approval is required prior to the recording/broadcast. A standard permission form is available from Media Services upon your request.
How would you like the studio to look?
There are several formats the studio can cater for
Maximum of an 85 seat audience (tiered, flat-floor or workshop-style)
Lectern or Couch
Microphone - hand-held or shirt lapel
PowerPoint or internet access
