The OneButton Studio will reopen for Spring Quarter on March 28, 2022.

We’re excited to announce that the first OneButton Studio at the University of Chicago is now available! It is located on the A Level of the Regenstein Library and is a simple and easy-to-use video studio that requires no previous video production experience to operate. The OneButton Studio allows users to create high-quality video in two simple steps: press a button to begin, and press again to stop. All of the work of setting up a camera, microphone, and lights is already done and pre-configured, leaving the user with only the task of recording the video.

What can you do with OneButton Studio?

The University recognizes that students are increasingly producing digital artifacts to support or even replace more traditional evidence of learning, and that faculty are becoming increasingly interested in adopting video recording to supplement their traditional classes and even as part of their research activities. With this in mind, the OneButton Studio is a simple and easy-to-use video studio that requires no previous experience to operate. Simply walk in, insert a flash drive, and press a button to begin recording. Lights go on, the camera and microphone begin recording, and you can focus on creating your video. The OneButton Studio can be used to record presentations for either practice or submission of assignments, project pitches, short lectures, and a variety of other purposes.


The OneButton Studio is located on the A Level of the Joseph Regenstein Library, located at 1100 E. 57th Street, Chicago, IL 60637. To reserve the OneButton Studio, please visit the Library’s OBS reservation page.


Hours of availability for the OneButton Studio are currently the same as those for the TechBar on the first floor of the Regenstein Library.  View the TechBar’s hours.
