The Sloan Teaching Studio is up and running! The Teaching and Learning Technologies team first piloted self-service studios at Sloan in 2020. Sloan’s faculty made such fantastic use of the prototype studios that we knew we wanted to build the real thing. Now, after many months spent designing, testing, and building, we’re inviting our community to take advantage of this fantastic resource.
If you teach at Sloan, this is your invitation to make great use of this new resource. You can:
- record an instructional video for your course;
- teach a class live online;
- record a public-facing video;
- create other learning experiences we haven’t even thought of yet—the sky’s the limit!
We designed the studio with you and your teaching in mind. The recording and broadcasting technology is streamlined so you can focus on teaching and learning. While the studio is self-service, AV technologists are on call to provide support.
The Sloan Teaching Studio is currently equipped with these resources:
- cameras to capture your studio session;
- a podium for your laptop;
- a whiteboard that you can use just like the whiteboard in a classroom;
- foot pedals, floor pads, and buttons that you can use to control the studio;
- a confidence monitor where you can see exactly what’s being captured on camera;
- a teleprompter where you can see your script while you’re recording a video;
- and a “Gallery View” monitor for viewing your students on Zoom during live broadcasting.
The Teaching Studio is open to MIT Sloan faculty and staff. Instructors can also book the studio for student use. We’re excited to see how the Sloan community will use the studio!
