he Fit Studio is a small but mighty space that hosts a lot of creative opportunities! Let’s take a look at our individual recording spaces and see what each area has to offer:

The Recording Booths

Each booth contains:

  • Mac OS based computers

  • Studio Lighting

  • Two Canon C100 cinema cameras
  • Teleprompters
  • Custom backdrops for green screen work or professional looking productions with neutral backgrounds

With a staff of TLI team members and student assistants at the ready from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday, there will always be a helping hand to assist faculty in content creation from beginning concepts to final products.

Through the Learning Glass

Express a bright idea with learning glass

In simplest terms, a Learning Glass system is a transparent and illuminated white board that can be written on with fluorescent erasable markers. Learning Glass was developed by SDSU Physics professor Matt Anderson to make learning a more engaging and humanized experience for students in online classrooms. The FIT Studio offers recording times with our own Learning Glass system to create simple yet engaging online lectures for your students using our professional recording equipment.

Virtual Reality (VR) Exploration

360 camera

One of the growing areas of interest within the intersection of technology and teaching is the use of virtual and augmented reality in the classroom. The TLI team serves as the forefront of exploration into these technologies in our own learning community and through these efforts we currently have VR cameras for faculty use! If you have ever wanted to explore the opportunities of VR and AR within your own teaching experience, come on by the FIT Studio and check out one of our cameras!
