The HIVE is working remotely, and the services and resources we offer have changed. Please explore the HIVE website for the most up-to-date information.

The HIVE focuses on developing instructional resources, video, and educational media for the Mines community. Due to the current circumstances, we will continue to support your instructional media needs in a remote capacity. In most cases, our remote HIVE student team can edit existing footage or footage you create. We are unable to check out recording equipment or film any live recordings at this time.
Please visit our RESOURCES and TUTORIALS pages for additional assistance.

The steps below provides detailed information on how the HIVE can support your course/project remotely. 

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. HIVE Managers 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.

For how-to information on recording multimedia please visit the HIVE Recording FAQs on the RESOURCES page.  

step 3: COMPlete the HIVE media upload form

Complete the HIVE Media Upload form. This will alert us that a new video has been created and is ready for editing.

step 4: Upload media to the shared drive

Last, you will upload media and additional resources to the HIVE shared drive. The HIVE Media Upload form listed in Step 3 will provide you with instructions on how to upload the content. All video recordings need to be uploaded as MP4 files. Please ensure screen recordings are recorded at a minimum of 30 frames per second; 60 frames per second is ideal.
