One Button Studio now open in Chifley Library

9 June 2017

Do you need to prepare a video presentation?  If so, the Library has the answer for you, thanks to a great initiative led by Frederick Chew of CASS.

ANU students and staff can now book the newly established One Button Studio, an easy-to-use video recording facility located on Level 4 of Chifley Library. The One Button Studio is well-suited to producing short clips for learning and teaching purposes, such as assignments, presentations and information updates. It is also a great way for students to practice their presentation skills.

The One Button Studio addresses the need for flexible and accessible learning and teaching spaces on campus. It lets you create professional-quality productions that are shorter, focused digital learning materials. Literally you turn on the lights, insert your USB and press the button!

The project team was led by Deputy Manager and Senior Educational Designer Frederick Chew (CASS) and included Educational Technologists Craig Gall (CASS) and Colin Simpson (CBE). Thanks to the Teaching Enhancement Grant scheme and all of those who helped - ANU Library, ANU Online, College of Business and Economics, Chris Deacon of ArtSoundFM and the Centre for Higher Education, Learning & Teaching.

University Librarian Roxanne Missingham said: “I’m thrilled that students, academics and staff can use this service – we made a major contribution as supporting new technology to assist in education is vital for us.”

Chew commented on the benefits the studio offers to students and staff: “With the One Button Studio, we hope to make video recording intuitive for everyone and expand the usage of videos in the teaching and learning.”

Students and staff are welcome to provide feedback on their experience with using the facility so that it can be refined over time to meet their needs.
