Due to the current circumstances, we are able to provide:

We are unable to  film live recordings or green screens at this time.

Use our SCHEDULER link for an equipment checkout or self-service appointment in our audio studios. Please visit our RESOURCES and TUTORIALS pages for additional assistance.

The following steps detail how the HIVE can support the editing of your course/project. 

Step 1: Pre-production MeetinG

During the pre-production meeting, effective media strategies for your course/project will be discussed. We will also establish a timeline to meet the required deadlines. The HIVE Manager and/or a HIVE Lead will assist and be your primary contacts. If this is for an online class, an Online Learning Experience Designer (OLED) will also be included in the multimedia development process.

For the time being, all pre-production meetings will be held on Zoom. To schedule a pre-production meeting please visit the HIVE Multimedia scheduling form

Step 2: Record your multimedia

This can be a voiceover, a screen capture, audio files and a PPT, etc. We want you to be able to use the system that works best for you and the resources you have at your disposal. If you need assistance determining the best process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and/or your OLED for brainstorming/testing.
