Supporting Faculty Video Needs

Faculty can now record course videos or professional work on their own time. UFIT recently opened its On-Demand Studio, offering a quick and easy alternative to filming lectures, trainings, or presentations.

UFIT produces instructional videos related to an official UF course at no cost to the instructor or department. The On-Demand Studio enables faculty to create professional-quality videos through a self-serve process for courses, research, or pre-recorded conference presentations. The studio is professionally set up with lights, a camera, and a green screen. Follow the instructions labelled in the room to start recording. The studio is located in the HUB room 225 and is open on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Faculty can book time in the studio by using the calendar link on the On-Demand Studio webpage. A complete list of instructions, what to bring, and FAQs are also available. Please contact the academic media productions team with any questions
or to schedule a consultation.
