Sandra Correa, assistant professor in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Aquaculture, uses a light board in Mitchell Memorial Library’s MaxxSouth Digital Media Center as she records a lecture and notes for an online applied ecology class. Although the library is closed for regular usage, faculty can reserve time in the AV Studio to prerecord lectures and are encouraged to utilize these resources in preparation for upcoming in-person and remote fall classes. Instructional technologists in the media center provide one-on-one assistance to faculty learning new technologies, such as creating class videos. Library subject specialists also can assist with identifying supplementary resources for class instruction, developing course specific guides and offering information literacy workshops through Webex.
