University of Oxford chooses Rapidmooc for an in-house solution to its video production needs

"The Saïd Business School wanted an on-campus space where lecturers, staff and students could create videos for internal and external purposes without any help for recording and editing."

Dominik Lukeš, Digital Learning Technologist

Why Rapidmooc?

Lecturers and staff at Oxford University needed a video solution to record tutorials, informational and promotional videos for individual courses, as well as to create videos that would improve and digitise cross-curricular communication. 

Students use Rapidmooc for media and application projects, allowing them to complete their assignments while also constantly improving their presentation and communication skills. 

Project stages

The University of Oxford first started with a 6-month trial of Rapidmooc.

1) Trial: A studio was set up on the university campus. 

2) Roll-out: After the successful trial, 2 more studios were delivered to provide the whole university with an all-in-one video solution. 

3) Production: Rapidmooc is now an integral part of Saïd Business School’s training programme.
