The Faculty of Medicine is implementing blended learning at a programmatic level in the Faculty’s campus-based undergraduate programs and enhancing the quality of online learning in its postgraduate coursework programs.
As part of this initiative, a media room, located in the AGSM building in room 216, is available to create engaging online activities, materials and video-lectures for students. On request one-on-one consultations are available to faculty members to help build skills and knowledge to enhance their online and in-class lectures and activities.
Media Room Orientation
To be able to use these facilities, we request that you first attend an orientation session. This will provide you with:
- An overview of the different equipment and software available to you
- Safety procedures for handling the video equipment
- Room booking instructions
- Video recording options
- Voice recording guidelines
- Basic light set ups
Online Training Modules
In addition to the face-to-face workshops, there are two online modules available in the Medicine Blended Learning Moodle site to help you get started with your projects and learn basic storyboarding techniques to prepare your online activities.

How do you make an educational video that adds value to someone's learning experience? Would you like to know the answer to this question? Yes? So would I.
This learning space has been created to tackle this question through the sharing and reviewing of video projects. Like all things, practice makes perfect and in order to create a collegial, collaborative space we will need to allocate some time to create our educational resources.
Firstly, you will need to choose the topics and activities that align with your learning objectives and fit this into your work/life schedule. Every month you will have the opportunity to join me in a video conferencing session through Google + as a way to connect virtually.
I hope this space offers both experts and novices new insights into creating educational media resources that facilitate learning.
