At Indiana University, Academic Media Production Spaces (AMPS) are recording facilities for faculty use, with technology suited for producing high-quality instructional audio and video content. Some of these spaces are full-service facilities staffed with video production professionals who work in collaboration with the faculty member to create mediated academic content while others are self-serve facilities where the faculty member is in control of the technology. Intended to be an improvement on do-it-yourself instructional media production, these spaces provide the technology to produce content of a higher quality allowing greater student engagement and retention.
