This project was funded by a grant from Macquarie University Sustainability unit and involved lecturers and tutors delivering the Major in Business Information Systems. The task was to develop a short video to highlight green-IT and sustainability perspectives and graduate prospects. The video would also outline selected course content and student activities as well as to illustrate the inter-relationship between each of the units in the major and the relationship between the two departments/faculties involved.
As Producer of the video resource, I consulted with the project leader to negotiate an appropriate approach for the video within time, budget and other constraints. We developed a straight-forward approach which would feature brief interviews with lecturers and tutors outlining the key aspects of each unit as well as incorporating student and IT industry perspectives. Simple animation was used to communicate the inter-relationship between the units and the graduate pathway through the major.
The final video is shown to students as they begin the major, and again as students begin selected units over the three years.
