Teaching & Learning Lab


As of Monday 15 June the studio of the Teaching & Learning Lab is open for reservation!

In the Teaching & Learning Lab studio you can record knowledge clips, short videos, webinars or other videos for your lessons. You can do this with assistance from an operator. Due to the coronavirus the Do-It-Yourself studio is closed.

Professional recordings with operator

An operator will assist you with the recording, make the recording with a professional camera and lighting and will do the video montage right away or at a later time. In addition to a simple recording with a white or standard background it is also possible to make recordings using a green screen or a light board.


Using a greenscreen makes it possible to put the recording against any background you might want, both during and after recording. For instance a tropical rainforest or an iceberg. A mathematical equation or a graph are also possible.
A light board allows you to explain like on a whiteboard or blackboard by writing on a glass screen with neon pens. Because you are standing behind the glass screen, you can continue to look straight into the camera while writing. After the clip is recorded it is mirrored, so the text will be legible for the viewer.

Further explanation about how the use and application of light boards can be found on the Educate-it webpage.
