Video production

Module introductions and expert interviews

What is it?

Video is a unique teaching tool that can be used in many different ways. You can use video in your teaching materials to simulate situations, show demonstrations of processes or techniques, use role-play to allow behaviour to be analysed, or just deliver a message in a really current and friendly way. You can create video material as a precursor to a lecture, to promote discussion around topics either in the classroom or online and to bring otherwise inaccessible scenarios in to your teaching to really stimulate your students' learning.


How does it work?

You can commission a high-end production from one of our in-house video producers. With years of experience, we are experts in using the language of film to convey a message and are specialists in educational video.

With your subject knowledge and our skills, we can produce a unique piece of content for your course, delivering exactly the message that you want to put across. As this material has been developed in-house you can also be sure that you can use it freely without any copyright issues.

We can also give advice on how to deliver this content to students, whether it's for a classroom audience, an online viewer via Course Resources or for mobile devices.


Getting started?

We are available to advise you on any aspect of video production and whether you have a fully formed idea or would just like to know what might work for your course area, please get in touch. Take a look at some of our work below, which may give you some inspiration and ideas.

You may find that one of the videos we have already produced would be useful in your course area. You can search our existing material using our Video Search website and embed this content into your teaching.

Once again, please get in touch with us to discuss any aspect of using video within your teaching.
