Yair Mintzker's From Luther to Napoleon is one of the many course video introductions created by The Broadcast Center.

In its repertoire of service offerings, the Broadcast Center (BC) has been producing Course Introduction videos for University faculty and departments. These videos are a new and innovative way to reach students and to begin the teaching before students even set foot in a classroom.

The Broadcast Center has created Course Introduction videos for more than ten University departments, including the Center for African American Studies, the Keller Center, and the History department. These course videos are often published to department websites where students can freely learn about the courses from the professors teaching the course. The History Department has a number of Course Introduction videos that highlight new course offerings for the fall; the videos are available on the department’s course video web page.

The Broadcast Center coordinates the process for video Course Introductions production. A team of video producers, editors, and engineers plan the details of the video shoot, preparing the video script for the teleprompter and arranging the set. The entire video process is customizable to a professor’s preferred level of assistance. Scripting assistance, and pre-production guidance is also available.
