Harvard University has just announced its plan to open a new addition to the Widener Library. Beginning October 2013, the library’s concourse level will be host to a new, state-of-the-art video production studio. The purpose of this new facility is pedagogical in nature. it will provide Harvard’s faculty and staff the tools for creating new multimedia content for their classes – both on-campus and online.

This new development comes in line with Harvard’s drive towards bringing its centuries-old traditions of quality education into the Age of Information. The studio itself will be managed jointly by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and HarvardX, which itself is part of a bigger online learning initiative founded together with MIT, edX – a cooperative by several US higher learning institutions that offer free online courses to students Worldwide.

Rita E. and Gustave M. Hauser Digital Teaching and Learning Studio, as this new enterprise is going to be named, will indeed feature state-of-the-art resources, such as green screens, high-definition cameras, as well as an LED light grid, which will further strengthen Harvard’s capacity for providing unmatched online experience for its students.

Harvard’s commitment to keeping up with the times and expanding into the world of technology is evident in the words of Faculty of Arts and Sciences’ Dean, Michael D. Smith:

“The Hauser studio is a significant step toward the goal of supporting teaching innovation broadly across the faculty. [..] Widener, Harvard’s icon for the dissemination of knowledge, is a fitting location for a new resource that will encourage innovation at the heart of our teaching mission.”

The Indigo Productions team would like to salute Harvard University on their worthy endeavor and setting the bar higher for other colleges and universities, both nationwide and internationally. Promotion of video production as an educational tool is also one of the goals of our own University Connection program.
