Despite profound changes to operations during the current COVID-19 emergency, SHSU Online’s Media Services department remains committed to providing key services to faculty members and students at SHSU. Department personnel have been, and continue to be, supporting the Online Operations department by conducting live webinars for faculty members that cover various tools involved in remote course delivery, from Zoom to Blackboard Collaborate to Kaltura Capture, and how to add narrations in PowerPoint presentations. The team has also produced PDF and video guides for use of the remote-delivery tools.
Other services the department continues to offer are audio and video editing, file conversion, and captioning for students registered through Services for Students with Disabilities. Media Services also offers one-on-one training or support for anyone seeking one-on-one tutorials or other assistance. Just email email@example.com, or reach out to individual members of the team, for help.
Here are a few links to some of the video resources created by Media Services recently to assist with the university’s response to the unprecedented COVID-19 challenge.
