Digital video allows instructors to include visually engaging material into their teaching and research. Through its flexibility, video can be used to demonstrate techniques, create course introductions, record lectures, and much more. Video elements can easily be added to a Blackboard course or shared online through websites like YouTube or Vimeo.


The term "digital video" is generally used to describe a video file that a computer or other electronic device can read. CIRT's Creative Team has extensive video resources and experience in producing and editing video projects. 


Video files can come from many places. It can be converted from VHS tapes, copied from a DVD, downloaded from the internet or recorded onto a camcorder, smartphone or camera. To turn video recordings into usable assets, some editing will likely be needed. CIRT uses professional editing software to enhance and build the final video project file.
