Support for student projects that enhance your curriculum
Digital media projects give students the opportunity to express themselves in innovative ways that that are both creative and engaging. New media assignments will also strengthen much-needed and much-overlooked digital literacy skills, but not at the expense of writing and research skills. The Multimedia Specialists of the Gelardin New Media Center provide multimedia instruction designed to introduce students to the multimedia software, video and audio equipment, and process of creating a project in alternative media. We also help faculty assess the projects by providing detailed rubrics and work with librarians to incorporate research instruction as well. Schedule time to speak with our Multimedia Instruction Coordinator or Department Head.
Considering flipping portions of your course? We have production spaces, editing rooms and a plethora of equipment and instruction to get you going. Learn to edit your Echo360 recordings by watching lynda.com iMovie tutorials or meeting with our staff.
Media Reserves and Streaming Media
Do you need to place a film or audio in the New Media Center on reserve for a class? Fill out the form here and either email it to email@example.com or deliver it to the center during operating hours. We are also able to stream many titles, making them available to your students online for anytime, anywhere access.
