One Button Studio

TheĀ One Button Studio (OBS), McCain G-14, is located in the Center for Teaching and Learning, McCain G-13. The OBS is designed for faculty to simplify the recording of videos for anyone with little or no previous experience. Professional lights, camera, microphones, backdrops, and writing board are preset, so all you have to do is bring a thumb drive and push a button to create a professional looking video.

Here are a few examples of how this studio could be used:

  1. Develop material for a flip or face-to-face course
  2. Perfect a micro-teaching lesson
  3. Record an interview or a poetry reading
  4. Demonstrate a tool, technique or process
  5. Deliver a lecture when you have to be away
  6. Record a music or theatrical audition
  7. Record an introduction for your online summer school class
