Faculti’s aim is to communicate research in a way that is accessible to the wider public. The videos are professionally made and the participants present their ideas clearly in an unadorned, simple way, largely relying on direct, to camera communication, without any other audiovisual aids. A simple idea, well executed.

I teach history, and assign my students chapters from McCormick’s Origins of the European Economy. I found the McCormick video – and we watched it in class in conjunction with the reading.

Working with Faculti was a pleasure. The videographer was talented and well-informed, and the interview was painless – even pleasant. The Faculti staff quickly prepared and presented the video clip on the Faculti website, and did an excellent job with it. I have received nothing but compliments about the video, and look forward to working with Faculti again.

The Faculti team has produced informative, accessible videos that convey substance without being overbearing. Viewers can be spurred either to find out more or to come away satisfied with a modicum of new, valuable knowledge.
Susan Sugarman, Princeton University
Faculti is great for accessing new, cutting edge content from across the spectrum. It is a brilliant research and knowledge exchange platform and brings key stakeholders together – policymakers, academics, professionals, students and importantly the public for maximum impact.
John Hemming, Member of British Parliament
Faculti did a great job; production, questions and edits – Happy to work with Faculti again if the opportunity arises.
Stephen Farthing RA, University of the Arts London
Faculti has great potential as a learning support.
Dr Anne Richardson Oakes, Director: Centre for American Legal Studies, School of Law, Birmingham City University
Faculti creates a deeper understanding of research, including inter-disciplinary studies, because the visual impact is important and the what it cross-cuts with other debates makes it inter-disciplinary. Students will appreciate the succinct summaries presented and the importance of the subject matter communicated.

I find the format very effective and will use it in teaching. The interviewer was excellent to work with.
Dan Plesch, Director of the Center for International Studies and Diplomacy, School of Oriental and African Studies
I have watched a few videos and I find the quality of good standards; the number of videos does not seem to come at the expense of content quality, at least in the business sections I reviewed. I also appreciate the format allowing the viewer understand it is an interview, but tactfully exclude the interviewer. I am excited to be included in such a finely implemented project.
Nikolaos Antypas, Lecturer in Finance and Corporate Governance, Brunel University
Faculti research videos are an invaluable resource for students and general members of the public exploring disciplines and issues. They are also important for researchers to share their ideas and thinking with broader audiences, and for universities to showcase their academic staff and research strengths.
