One Button Studio 2.0
The Teaching and Learning with Technology's (TLT) One Button Studio at Penn State Schuylkill is a simplified video recording setup for producing high-quality, polished videos with little or no previous video production experience. Located on the first floor of the Ciletti Memorial Library, L115, the One Button Studio is available to all students, staff, and faculty with a Penn State ID+ card. The One Button Studio is open during the library's regular hours and the studio key, control, and accompanying resources are available at the front desk.
In 2021, the One Button Studio was upgraded with new features that make video production easier than ever.
New features include:
- easy-to-access iPad control
- record, preview, and save multiple videos
- direct upload to Kaltura (users can still save locally to USB drive)
- integration with Canvas
Faculty can schedule a One Button Studio tutorial and demonstration for a class by contacting Julie Meyer, instructional designer, or Carla Seward, Media Commons traveling consultant for eastern campuses.
