UPCEA eDesign Collaborative ThinkTank Roadshow: Oregon State University (Sept. 21)

Multimedia Dev

In effort to widen the scope and learn more about several campus instructional design units, we will be engaging in virtual ThinkTanks. These will be two hour events where we get to know a new university team and have a working session together.

Oregon State University Ecampus provides full service instructional design for faculty developing online courses, including multimedia development. Join us for a showcase of recent projects including interactive video, Learning Glass video, 3-D scanning and animation, and our award-winning 3-D microscope that allows students to manipulate microscope controls and see the results with actual slide photography. Following the showcase will be a panel discussion with this creative team, focusing on technologies used, design processes, and storyboarding media projects. In a one-hour working session, we’ll share strategies for project planning including best practices on storyboarding. Finally, we will wrap up with time for Q&A and sharing key takeaways.

Why OSU: Oregon State University’s Ecampus is a premier west coast higher education online team, with over 70 department employees. They recently earned a top 10 ranking in online bachelor’s programs for the fourth straight year from U.S. News & World Report, and have more than 50 degree programs. They are a full production shop and have been a leader in multimedia design.
