One Button Studio Offers New Possibilities, Solves Old Problems for Group Projects

The answer to all of your group project problems has arrived! Conveniently located in University Library One South, One Button Studio allows students to easily record professional-quality video with the simple push of a button. To record video, students simply insert a USB drive into a designated location and hit the big red button in front of them. They can then make use of the studio’s lighting, microphones, and neutral background to produce a high-quality product that far surpasses that of a phone. Slides, YouTube videos, and anything else that can be pulled up on a computer screen can easily be projected behind the person who is speaking. The studio offers an unprecedented level of simplicity and leaves students with professional-looking footage that is ready to be edited and made into a finished product.

Student Koyote Meiners-Rios, a recent One Button Studio user, observed “I think the best part of One Button Studio is how easy it is to use. There are easy-to-understand instructions written out for you and literally one button. It’s so simple. Everything is set up for you and all you have to do is plug in and record! With no experience and a flash drive, you’re all set.” Meiners-Rios also said, “It’s a unique setting that students should take advantage of; not only is it quick and easy, but it creates a high-quality end product.”

One Button Studio lets you do so much more than group projects. Students can also use it for:

  • Online interview practice
  • In-class presentation rehearsal
  • Practice for oral assessments in foreign language classes
  • Creation of promotional videos for student activities and events
  • Other creative uses that you can think up!

One Button Studio is located in Northwestern University Library in One South (on the first floor of the south tower). Follow the map below!
