Learning Media

What We Do

The Learning Media Team supports the creation of engaging and high-quality multimedia to enhance student learning and the Miami experience. Using a variety of professional tools and techniques, we can help faculty engage students – online or in the classroom – and feel more comfortable communicating through video and multimedia. The Media Team provides three levels of multimedia services: course- or program-related, extended services, and special projects.

Request Media Services

Foundational Work

The bulk of our work supports our cohort of instructors in the course design program. These instructional videos have high priority on our schedule.

Extended Services

Extended Services encompass course-level instructional videos for faculty outside of the course design program, including former cohort participants.

Special Projects

Special Projects can include department or program-level video needs, or other opportunities for innovation. This is where we push the envelope with creative projects and aim to create something new.

How We Do It

We use a variety of professional tools and techniques to help faculty engage students through visual storytelling devices. Our seasoned producers help faculty feel comfortable presenting and communicating through video and multimedia.
