with Rapidmooc’s One-Click Videos
Setting the Scene
Queen Margaret University (QMU) in Scotland offers practical courses in areas such as health sciences, social sciences, business, and teaching and is known for their person-centered and career-focused approach to education and teaching. However, they faced a common challenge: how to create engaging online course content efficiently.
The Old Way:
A Time-Consuming Process
Creating video content at QMU took a lot of time and effort. The team had to move equipment to different places on campus and spend hours setting up before filming could start. After filming, their videos still had to be edited and published, which made this process even more time consuming. Making videos was slow and labor intensive, limiting how many online courses they could produce. It was therefore extremely difficult to keep up with the university’s growing demands.
One Click to Professional Video Content
Rapidmooc was introduced to QMU with the intention of streamlining video creation and to reduce their filming and editing time. The platform was designed to be simple, so educators and experts could film professional quality videos on their own, without the need of an audio visual team. With Rapidmooc, all their users needed to do was connect a laptop with their presentation to the Rapidmooc studio, stand in front of the camera, and begin recording. The user-friendliness of the system made it easier for people at QMU to make online course videos more efficiently without sacrificing quality.
