The ELC supports the complete life-cycle of academic video production for the university, from idea to publishing. With audiovisual studio spaces in Moody Library, software and hosting solutions, and professional field recording equipment, our professional and graduate video producers can supply quality audiovisual content to enhance teaching and research.

Our team has historically provided studios suitable for student assessments. The advent of online graduate programs, online and hybrid courses, and the wisdom of universal design encourage us to expand our services. Users of our "Video Booth" and dual "Audio Booth" rooms are aware of the value of reservable studio spaces, and also the limitations of these rooms as designed.
In Fall 2021, we added staff for professional video production and in Summer 2022 began two brand new studio spaces, custom designed to accomplish academic video production, of a quality and with a service level in-keeping with Baylor's high standard for instruction.
In short, we will have a new, upgraded DIY space, a custom production studio, staff to support field recording, equipment to facilitate remote recording, and a production team skilled in graphic design, animation, and editing who can deliver outstanding academic video content.

If you have a spot in-mind, we'll complete a site check and can record on-site if the location is suitable. Indoor and outdoor locations are both possible. Distance, duration, complexity, and desired assets all affect the decision to opt for field recording over studio work.

Coming to the Waco Campus to record in our studios may not be an option. Reserve a "Studio in a Box" and have it delivered to your remote location. Kit will include:
In addition to camera work, our team can design intros and outtros, lower-thirds, animations and graphics, and edit your raw footage. Send us a Creative Project Request if you have content that needs professional assistance.
Full description of Kaltura, including features and use of the Canvas integration and Mediaspace are available at libguides.baylor.edu/kaltura101. Look on the library calendar for the next Kaltura workshop.
Kaltura integrates with Canvas and allows you to use video content in your courses. By default, the integration should be enabled on every Canvas course. You can verify it is enabled by looking for the My Media and Media Gallery menu items within the course. If you do not see these, you will need to enable them.
Kaltura Mediaspace is a public-facing platform for hosting videos in the Kaltura system. Many videos shared on Mediaspace can be accessed without a Baylor login, which makes it perfect for content outside the university. There are also videos which require a Baylor login but aren't tied to a single course.
Every video uploaded to Kaltura automatically receives machine captioning. However, machine captioning only achieves between 70%-80% accuracy. If your video contains a lot of technical language or proper nouns, you may want to edit the captions.
