The Faculty Multimedia Center will be open for in-person appointment by request on a limited basis in Fall 2020. Virtual appointments and consultations are highly encouraged for those that are building media content from home or do not wish to come in-person. There are specific guidelines below that we have put in place to ensure the safety of both faculty and staff.
Fall 2020 FMC Guidelines
We are so excited to have you back in the FMC. We’ve missed seeing everyone! Due to COVID-19, we are putting some extra precautions in place in order to protect everyone using the space and other people working in the building.
We will not be accepting walk-in appointments. All in-person appointments must be made at least 48 hours in advance. Please be considerate if you plan to cancel an appointment and let us know as soon as possible. Of course, if you are sick or have a fever please do not hesitate to cancel your appointment.
In-person appointments will be available MWF between 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Only one station can be used per appointment to reduce the amount of sanitation needed between appointments. We will have a maximum of two stations in use simultaneously.
There are two lightboard stations available as well as all other stations. Both lightboard stations will have Camtasia available in the same space. If you plan to edit your lightboard footage after you’re done recording, please give yourself enough time within your appointment. Lightboard 1 has the capability to project PowerPoint slides and Lightboard 2 does not. If you plan to use PowerPoint slides in your lightboard recording, book Lightboard 1.
We will be sanitizing stations in between each appointment meaning there will be a 1-hour break between each appointment. We are also hoping to stagger appointment start times. For example, if an appointment is already booked for a 10 a.m. start time, try to book your appointment for a 10:30 a.m. start time. This will help us get prepared for the next appointment and reduce the amount of people in the common area. Per university guidance we require that everyone wear a mask in the common area, but you are welcome to take off the mask in the private recording spaces. If you are sick, have a fever, or feeling under the weather in any way, please cancel your appointment and stay home. Please be courteous, patient, and aware of those in the space and in the building.
