Video Production Facilities @EdUHK
Video Production Room (E-P-16)
The Video Production Room is to support the production of quality video resources for enhancing blended learning and e-Learning related initiatives, and facilitate the content creation of Mini-Massive Open Online Courses (Mini-MOOCs)/Small Private Online Courses (SPOCs) by the provision of a well-equipped video production environment. Equipped with state-of-art one-touch video recording system, professional lighting system, chroma-key green screen, computer, wireless microphone, mixers and high-quality pan–tilt–zoom (PTZ) camera, the Video Production Room is designed as a facilitation to cater all-around needs of forging an e-Learning environment at the University. This room can provide more efficient, convenient and cost-effective tools for academic/teaching staff to produce video resources for daily teaching, VBLC sharing and Moodle course resources.
Panopto is a video management platform that allows teachers and students to record, edit, share and manage videos.
Panopto can be used for recording live lectures, creating instructional videos and creating student assessments. For example, students can submit videos as assignments, quiz questions can be embedded into lecture videos and be used as timely assessments when students watch the videos. With Panopto, teachers can easily view analytics reports that show which students watched each video, how long students watched videos before dropping off, and more. It’s valuable information that allows teachers to monitor student progress and identify specific moments where students are most engaged in learning.
Students can take notes that are saved as personal bookmarks, speed up and slow down video playback, and even search for any word spoken or shown in the video and instantly jump to a specific, relevant moment as they are studying.
With the objective to explore the potential of sharing digital videos for enhancing learning and teaching activities of the University, Video-based Learning Community (VBLC) has been developed by LTTC with more than 300 staff and 900 student accounts created in VBLC and more than one thousand videos uploaded supporting various learning and teaching activities. We aim at developing a user-friendly web-based platform for a one-stop service of managing, editing, and sharing videos in teaching and learning. By allowing VBLC users to upload videos and create their own learning community, both staff and students can share their own self-produced videos to specific communities, discuss and construct knowledge on various topics such as good practices of teaching. The VBLC can be further enhanced to a Learning Management System platform achieving the aims of sharing multimedia teaching materials, online learning activities and teaching practice assessment.

Create your Talking Head/Screencast Presentation
Creating effective video learning resource is not an easy task without state-of-art and easy-to-use video production system and venue. The Video Production Room of LTTC is built for colleagues to produce quality video learning resources in a technology-enhanced and user-friendly production environment. The Video Production Room (E-P-16) is equipped with automatic HD video camcorder, tie-clip microphone, professional lighting system and chroma key effect background. Colleagues with little knowledge of video production can manage to produce quality talking head and screencast videos which will be useful resources for daily teaching, implementing flipped classroom strategy and assisting in mini-MOOC development. To let colleagues know more about the production and the room, a workshop on “Create your Talking Head/Screencast Presentation” will demonstrate how to create video resource in the Video Production Room and highlight some tips for making effective talking head and screencast video for learning and teaching.
Using Panopto for Video Recording and Editing
Panopto is a platform that allows us to record, edit, share and manage videos. It can be used for recording live lectures and creating instructional videos. This workshop will cover how such recording can be done, how the resulted videos can be shared with students, together with what Panopto offers in terms of video editing. Analytics reports generated by Panopto regarding the viewing of videos will also be discussed.

Using Panopto for In-video Quiz and Video Assignment Submission
Videos can be a useful medium for assessment. For example, students can submit videos as assignments, quiz questions can be embedded into lecture videos and be used as timely assessments when students watch the videos. This workshop will cover how these can be done with the Panopto platform and be incorporated into Moodle, via setting up a video drop-box for video assignment submission and creating quizzes embedded in videos.
