Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Enhance your courses by adding multimedia components. Whether you would like to use video lectures for a flipped classroom, podcasts to highlight guest speakers, or learn do-it-yourself techniques for authoring multimedia, the Teaching and Learning Centre provides support through our multimedia developers for all teachers on campus.

We can work with you to:

  1. Train you how to create your own online content
  2. Discuss how we can make a multimedia project for you


If you prefer to learn how to develop your own videos, we can teach you how to use:

  1. KALTURA - an extension inside of our learning management system where you can create a basic lecture with minimal editing.  It allows you to capture your screen, writing, voice, and face on your webcam while delivering your content.
  2. CAMTASIA - software that allows you to capture your screen, writing, voice, and webcam to create online content.  
  3. STUDIO RECORDING - We have a small studio space with professional lights, cameras, and audio equipment that you can book.

The above three types of content do not require a project initiation form.

If you are not sure whether to use Kaltura or Camtasia, below is a chart comparing the two screen capturing methods:

Below is a list of different types of videos we have done in the past:

  • Guest lecture
  • Interview
  • Lab instruction
  • Tour
  • Simulation
  • Event
  • Creative

Depending on the amount of shots, graphics, and locations needed, the more time it will take to complete the project. If you prefer to plan a video, and have the multimedia team work on it for you, you will need to submit a project initiation form.  



We can also help you develop interactive tools like a learning module or interactive diagram.  The software we use is called Adobe Captivate.
