Education with video and audio

In addition to web lectures you can also create short knowledge clips, podcasts, vodcasts, and other audio-visual productions. You can even stream a lecture live.

Knowledge clips

A knowledge clip is an application often used in Blended Learning. A knowledge clip is a short video in which the lecturer explains a bite-sized chunk of the lesson materials so that students can understand it before the lecture. This leaves more time in the lecture to explore the materials in more depth. Some faculties have a recording studio where such clips can be created. If you want to create a knowledge clip, please contact your video coordinator.

Create your own audio or video materials

Not all knowledge clips have to be high-quality studio productions. You can of course also produce audio or video materials yourself, or edit existing materials and share them with your students. Need some inspiration? The video toolkit offers examples of a variety of educational videos.

You can save your videos and share them via the Kaltura online video system. Kaltura is integrated in Blackboard, so that you can easily make your videos available. You can also shield your Kaltura materials from visitors from outside the University. Restricted materials can only be accessed by visitors with a ULCN account.

Live lecture

The web lecture equipment can also be used to livestream your lectures. This may be useful in collaboration projects with other universities in which external students may want to follow your lecture in real time. Students are sent a link beforehand and they can watch the lecture via their web browser. Not all faculties offer this service, and it is certainly not possible in all lecture halls. If you are interested in live streaming your lecture, please contact your video coordinator.

The Faculty of Humanities is very active in the field of Blended Learning. In this context, we produce a large number of knowledge clips. The Faculty has its own studio (Reuvensplaats) and the support of a cameraman/video technician. Knowledge clips are not only created in the context of ICT & Education projects. If you need a few ad hoc knowledge clips created, please contact ECOLe. We will also gladly help you with any other issues related to using video and audio in your lectures.
