Have you visited the CU Online Creation Station?
The Creation Station is up and running and ready to help you make high quality videos for your classroom. Since it officially opened in March, there have been about 75 visitors and counting. The best part about the Creation Station is that it is easy to use. Faculty and staff have been coming to the Creation Station to create video lectures, course description videos, marketing videos, and have been recording one-on-one interviews with guest speakers. What videos will you make? We hope to see you soon!
