The "Vault" Media Recording Studio

Located in the Learning Commons on the 2nd floor of Glickman Library, "The Vault" serves as a small media production studio for faculty. It is called "The Vault" because the room originally served as the bank vault for the bakery that was located in the present day Glickman building.

The room has excellent acoustics and contains a computer workstation equipped basic media production tools and software for faculty to record and edit digital projects- including screencasts, whiteboard video lectures, podcasts, or Khan-Academy style instructional videos.

The Vault is now designated exclusively for faculty use. Students can access recording equipment through Instructional Technology & Media Services. CTEL has assumed the responsibility for scheduling and supporting faculty who wish to use the vault. Faculty who wish to schedule an appointment can contact Rucha Modak (rmodak@usm.maine.edu) or Pieter Tryzelaar (ptryzelaar@usm.maine.edu).
