General Tips for Online Media Use
- We strongly advise faculty, instructors, teaching assistants, and staff to think about accessibility when creating course content. (For more information, visit Cornell University Student Disability Services.)
- If you have materials that are not in a web-ready format, Academic Technologies can help! Scanning and digitizing services are available at no charge in the Academic Technology Center
- Blackboard can manage a wide variety of text files, and provides a convenient way to organize and make reading materials available to students. Instructions for adding content are available here.
- Cornell Librarians can work with you to make course reserves available online through Blackboard.
Video and Audio
- Lecture capture, using Panopto, allows users to record a PowerPoint presentation (or other content) along with instructor audio/video. This material can then be indexed and shared online via Blackboard or another site.
- Use the equipment available for loan in the Academic Technology Center to create your video or other content (Talk with one of our instructional designers for the latest ideas!)
- Kaltura enables public sharing of lectures, conferences, and meetings.
