Knowledge clips

Short videos for recurring subjects, exam preparation or as an alternative to a question & answer lecture

A knowledge clip – a short video on a specific subject - is used to explain a complex or recurring concept, amongst other purposes. Once recorded, such a clip can be used for many years. Students can watch these clips whenever and wherever they would like. This gives lecturers the opportunity to dive deeper into the subject matter during a lecture. Radboud University has a professional recording studio and production team. Filming on site is also possible.
