Production Spaces

Indiana University’s Production Spaces

While Indiana University provides faculty with several easy-to-use software options some faculty would prefer a more “hands-off” approach. IU offers support for this preference as well: the Faculty Media Production Spaces - one located on IUB’s campus and the other located at IUPUI. These spaces provide instructors with the means and expertise to create dynamic and professional quality presentations to enhance student learning, without prior technical knowledge. Below are some of the featured technologies in this space:

  • A SMART podium for pen annotations and real-time interaction with your materials
  • Remote Presenter/clicker
  • A LightBoard, similar to a whiteboard, allows you to write on a vertical surface while facing the camera (see image below)
  • Adjustable height demonstration table
  • “Green screen” technology for inserting images, slides, and video into the background
  • A large view-screen for live-viewing the final output
  • Two HD cameras for capturing production-quality digital video
  • Wireless lavaliere microphones

An activated lightboard causes UV-reactant markings on a clear surface to glow

Technical knowledge NOT required?

Luckily, instructors who use the space will have the benefit of working alongside a production manager who will operate the equipment and manage technical operations, and a consultant from CITL to help plan and refine a more engaging and meaningful presentation style to best fit your learning goals.

Introduction to Lessons/Concepts

Provide your students with foundational knowledge for them to build on during class or an assignment.


These shortened lectures get into some detail but free up in-class time for hands-on projects and activities.
