Emerging Media and Production

Emerging Media and Production

Emerging Media and Production researches, produces, and implements innovative technologies that support excellence in teaching and learning at RRC Polytech. As a unit of the Centre for Learning and Program Excellence (CLPE), Emerging Media provides numerous resources that support Flexible On-line Delivery (FODM), Blended Learning, and communications. We work collaboratively with staff, faculty, and strategic partners to develop materials that elevate student success and define RRC Polytech as a leader in post-secondary education.

Emerging Media produces a wide range of educational materials to enrich teaching and learning at RRC Polytech. We create and support the development of media that demonstrates complex processes, inspires learning, and connects the college and partners with engaging communications. Our emphasis is on the production of high-quality, media-rich materials that are used internally and internationally.

Connected Classroom

The Connected Classroom is equipped with studio lighting and cameras, two project screens, and has seating for 60.

The Connected Classroom is purpose-built to live stream and record presentations and events both asymmetrically and symmetrically. The studio features multiple cameras, enhanced lighting, audio, and presentation technologies to capture detailed demonstrations and student/teacher interactions. With our mobile production unit, we can stream and record your activities anywhere, anytime.

Immersion Room

Students gather for a presentation in the Immersion Room, which has 360 projection around the room.

The Immersion Room allows projection of images or information on all four walls of the room at the same time, creating a unique 360º experience for teaching, learning, research and communications. The experience is similar to a virtual reality experience, but in a group setting. In this room we will simulate environments that give students realistic, immersive experiences for skill development.

Desktop Recording

The mini recording studio in Emerging Media is available for desktop recording.

For asynchronous teaching associated with flexible online delivery, Emerging Media manages and supports Mediasite Mosaic. Mosaic is used to record, upload, and share video and desktop materials. The recorder captures all types of desktop media. Recordings can be edited, published and shared via a direct link or embedded in LEARN.

Learning Innovation

Emerging Media supports and creates a wide variety of innovative learning solutions that engage students in powerful ways. Interactive multi-media products allow students to dive into material and explore at their own pace. 360° video productions promote empathetic learning while Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Realty (AR) enhance the learning process with powerful sensory experiences.

RRC Polytech campuses are located on the lands of Anishinaabe, Ininiwak, Anishininew, Dakota, and Dené, and the National Homeland of the Red River Métis.

We recognize and honour Treaty 3 Territory Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, the source of Winnipeg’s clean drinking water. In addition, we acknowledge Treaty Territories which provide us with access to electricity we use in both our personal and professional lives.
