Video in Education SIG – First Webinar Event 22/11/12

City’s new Video in Education SIG – a special interest group – invites you to grab a coffee and share best practice at our first webinar.

The MILL at City University London

As we are beginning a new term I thought I would let you know/remind you about the Media and Innovation Learning Lab (MILL) at City University London. It is an excellent resource that City University staff can take advantage of.


The MILL is located in E201, the Drysdale building, Northampton Square. It is where we do the majority of our Moodle training but there is a lot more available for you to use.


The MILL is a series of rooms with multimedia facilities. There is a TV studio, podcast studios and training rooms available for City University staff to book into.

Equipment can also be loaned out including film camera, ipod nanos, voice recorders, webcams, ipads and much more. Please see the full list here

Other training is run there including

TV studio induction

Video Making day

I attended the video making day in December and I found it really useful. We learnt how to use the camera and microphone equipment and how to set up a shot. We then went out and did some filming and brought it back to learn how to edit it using Final Cut Pro.

The University provides other services for staff to use to host audio, multi-media and video on the web, a Flash Media Server (FMS), a Podcasting Service (ULCC), a webinar and presentation service (Talk Server) and an iTunes U service.

For advice on how to use these services and how to link or display your audio, multi-media or video files on the web, via moodle, blogs or other social media, contact The MILL in person in E201 or by emailing
