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.

All Pre-Production Meetings are currently 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, Lightboard recording, 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.
