Examples of our Work

The Media Production Unit has produced a wide variety of programmes, across the University as well as for some outside agencies. These productions range from Promotionals, aimed at student recruitment, to short instructional videos, and lectures, either distributed on-line to students through "Moodle", the University of Glasgow's Virtual Learning Environment, or as part of a MOOC, "Massive Open on-line Course", produced by the University. You can view a number of extracts from a selection of such videos, by clicking the "(view clip)" links below.

Public Lectures / Events


The Media Production Unit records all University of Glasgow Graduations, using a 4-5  camera outside broadcast set up, which records a high defintion live recording of the event. This results in a high quality recording of the day, which is distributed as a video file, on a credit card style USB memory stick, through the University Visitor Centre, or through my campus.
