    videoJockey Club Audio-Visual Production Centre at the OUHK inaugurated

    As the leading open education provider in Hong Kong, the OUHK has been using innovative technologies to facilitate and support learning since its establishment in 1989. The University has recently received a $15.56 million donation from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust towards setting up the ‘Jockey Club Audio-Visual Production Centre’ to enhance the University’s educational services.

    The ‘Jockey Club Audio-Visual Production Centre’ was inaugurated by Chairman of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Mr T Brian Stevenson, OUHK Council Chairman Dr Eddy C Fong, Deputy Council Chairman Mr Edward Cheung and President Prof. John C Y Leong on 24 March. The Centre has been named the ‘Jockey Club Audio-Visual Production Centre’ to show the University’s gratitude for the Trust’s generous donation.

    Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Dr Fong said that the establishment of the Centre marks the beginning of another chapter for the OUHK, helping to strengthen the University’s role in providing innovative learning and teaching to its students and the public.

    ‘The Centre is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for the production of quality educational TV programmes and for the enrichment of our audio-visual materials,’ he said.

    Chairman of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Mr T Brian Stevenson said the partnership between the Club and OUHK dated from the first donation made in 1993. ‘With the advancement in technologies and use of high definition and digitization of audio-visual productions, the Club sees the donation to the Centre benefiting thousands of people using these distance learning materials,’ Mr Stevenson said.

    Mr Stevenson noted that the Club had long been committed to education and training as the foundation for the sustained growth of society, having donated more than $3 billion to support such education and training projects over the past decade alone.

    Speaking at the ceremony, Prof. Leong said the establishment of the Centre is another step forward for the OUHK to fulfil its mission of making education available to all. He added that the Centre can contribute towards producing the creative talent that Hong Kong needs. Prof. Leong also thanked The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust for its unremitting support of the University.

    Upgrading production quality

    The 242 square-metre ‘Jockey Club Audio-Visual Production Centre’ comprises five sections, namely, the AV Editing Suite, Audio Recording Booth, AV Production Studio, Control Room and Film Editing Laboratory. It is well furnished with high-definition audio-visual production equipment for in-house production. It also allows creative writing and film arts students to practise video production skills.

    Head of Education Technology and Publishing Dr Yuen Kin-sun said the OUHK has long been using public television channels to deliver video programmes to its students and to the public. The University set up an audio-visual production centre in 1996 and has been producing its own educational programmes since then.

    ‘The recent donation by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust allows the OUHK to deploy advanced audio-visual technologies in its production, making it one of the few local institutions to be equipped with high definition production facilities. This puts the University in a good position to provide quality services to its students and the community,’ said Dr Yuen.

    With the Centre coming into operation, the OUHK can produce more high quality educational materials and enhance the accessibility of these materials on both traditional and online media, including the University’s digital platform Open Learning, iTunes U, YouTube and Facebook.
