Welcome to the Interactive Digital Environments Lab at Mizzou
The Interactive Digital Environments Lab provides innovative technology-driven solutions to the challenges presented by online teaching and learning. The lab includes a three-wall green-screen set where faculty can pre-record lectures, demonstrations and presentations using professional-grade equipment.
- Record high-quality video and audio for course materials
- Demonstrate equipment or equations with overhead views
- Use picture-in-picture video
- View what students will see with a confidence monitor
- Get assistance from support staff before and during recording
The IDE Lab is open to College of Engineering faculty and administrators. Requests for the use of the lab should be submitted by the Wednesday prior to the week of the desired recording. Students may reserve space on Thursday of the prior week if there are open slots available.
The lab may be reserved in 1.5 hour increments.
PLA technical assistants from the Information Technology Program will be on hand at all times to help set up and troubleshoot.
What to Expect
Faculty are encouraged to visit the lab prior to their recording session.
Please bring a laptop with your desired course materials. You may also want to bring a flash drive or other storage device.
Be prepared for your lecture, just as you would be for class. Know your slides, and know your timing.
You are required to review your lecture with a lab facilitator prior to recording to discuss your goals and materials. The PLA will guide you through the process and help ensure the appropriate materials are displaying properly.
Following the recording, IT student facilitators will conduct audio and post-production processing to ensure quality. Videos will be available to faculty approximately 24 to 48 hours after recording.
