Expert Interviews In Studio, On Location, and Remote
The studio provides a professional yet intimate setting for interviewing an expert, while a green screen simultaneously shows images related to the conversation. An interview at Duke’s Lemur Center contextualizes the discussion on conservation in a unique campus facility. Side-by-side windows show the instructor interviewing an expert at a remote location.

Lecture on Location: Global
By traveling to other countries to film on location, instructors help students understand the real-world context of the topics of their lecture in remote global locations.
Studio production allows instructors to film demonstrations that bring scientific concepts to life.
Other techniques include playing musical instruments to demonstrate musical concepts and the lightboard, which allows the instructor to lecture and illustrate concepts while facing the camera.
Drawn animation adds engaging visuals to a lecture.
