Other Media Recording Options

In-the-Field Recordings

The ACES online media producers can take their recording equipment on the go! If you have ideas for recording content in the field, greenhouse, or other living laboratories on or off campus, the media team is happy to record on location. 

CITL Media Studios

The ACES Online Team also has access to CITL media studios throughout campus for additional recordings and can assist in scheduling and editing as well. Media studios include:

  • CITL media studio in the Literature, Cultures, and Linguistics Building: a larger studio that's excellent for recording videos that need more space, like a panel discussion or demonstration. 
  • CITL Instructor Studio (External Website): In the Armory, the instructor studio is great for DIY lectures and Zoom recordings. The ACES Online Team can provide an introduction to the studio and help you schedule time for your recordings.

CITL Event Recording Service

CITL can also provide professional and quality video and audio recordings across campus. Learn more and contact CITL for assistance through their Event Recording Service (External Website) webpage.
