🟩 Green Screen Studio


The CETL Green Screen Studio is closed at this time and being prepared for relocation. Please check again during the summer term for any updates.

The CETL Green Screen Studio allows faculty to create short and casual introductory or supplemental instructional videos for their courses using green screen technology. Only SPC faculty members are allowed to reserve and utilize the studio. Upon approval, students and members of staff may come in as volunteers, as long as the faculty member who reserved the studio remains as the project leader and accompanies them during the entirety of the recording session. Video materials recorded and produced at the CETL Green Screen Studio should be used exclusively by SPC faculty members for educational purposes at St. Petersburg College.

Each reservation grants you 2 hours to record up to 5 videos. Each video cannot be longer than 4 minutes in length. Videos that exceed this requirement will be rejected (creation of entire lectures on video is strictly forbidden), so we ask that you please plan accordingly and practice your timing in advance. Each video should cover a different topic/sub topic rather than a straight continuation of the same topic from a previous video. This requirement helps the college prevent the recording of lectures for missed class sessions.

Once your videos are recorded, CETL will take care of the editing process and send you a finished copy directly to your SPC e-mail via OneDrive by the end of the week (Fridays are reserved for this purpose, regular maintenance, and meetings). A backup of your video project is kept for one month. To comply with federal law, you are required to provide proper close captioning to your video(s) before sharing with your students. You can accomplish this by using Ensemble, an SPC supported online video platform that integrates with MyCourses and provides you with close captioning tools.
