E-Learning Technology Collection

The E-Learning Technology Collection is a fleet of portable technology items meant to facilitate and enhance instructional design and the creation of digital course materials.

UC faculty and staff may borrow items from the E-Learning Technology Collection with the following privileges:

  • 6 items at once.
  • 5 days
  • Unlimited renewals, unless an item is reserved for another user.
  • Faculty and staff using items must be present at the time of check out and the time of return.
    • Users will be required to sign a borrowing contract at the time of check out and return.
    • Users cannot check out items and then give those items to other people. That will result in a suspension of privileges.

Overdue items, including items that become overdue and are renewed in overdue status, will accrue fines at the rate of $10 per day. These fines cannot be waived unless the user faced a grave medical emergency. Renewals can be executed on the library's website or by calling 513-556-1424.

Microphone Spark Lighting (USB)


The Spark Digital Studio Condenser Lightning Microphone by Blue is designed for driverless plug-and-play audio recording to a PC, Mac, or iPad (30-pin and Lightning connector versions or 30-pin version with available Lightning adapter) in applications such as music, voiceovers, and podcasting. The large diaphragm condenser Class-A circuit design is suitable for recording sounds such as vocals, drums, piano, speech, location sounds and more.
The microphone connects to your PC or Mac via USB or to your 30-pin or Lightning connector iPad using the supplied y-connector cables with integrated zero-latency monitoring headphone jacks. It utilizes a 16-bit 44.1 kHz analog-to-digital converter to record WAV and MP3 files on your computer or iPad using your DAW or recording application of choice. The front of the microphone body features on-board controls for volume, gain, and instant mute as well as an LED meter to provide visual feedback.
The microphone features a Focus Control switch for either increased low frequency sensitivity in normal/off mode or greater clarity and detail in the treble range when the Focus Control is engaged. This circuit is not a simple low-pass or high-pass filter, but rather a switch to change the voltage loading of the input driver for the microphone capsule itself. This provides for an output signal that is uncolored with different dynamic properties and a different frequency response to expand the versatility of the microphone. The unit comes with an adjustable desk stand with a built-in shockmount, a USB cable, and a Lightning cable. A 30-pin connector cable is available for older iOS devices (sold separately).

Microphone gain control as well as an instant mute function are available right on the device itself, while the included stand allows for pivoting in a variety of angles for ideal placement, with the added functionality of folding the mic down for storage and transport. The Yeti is Mac and Windows compatible, and includes a USB cable.
