Digital production

The Centre for Academic Development has a Digital Production team which can assist staff to renew and enhance course material, produce high-end diagrams, 3D Moodle objects, videos, animations and high quality digital narratives.

Scoping and project planning is a joint venture, and our staff will take care of the shoot for you using professional studio and production equipment. We will also provide you with technical expertise and editorial advice throughout post production stage.
