Either way, you may find yourself doing something like that this week. If you do notice your professor is requiring you to create a video, podcast, oral history, blog post, infographic, digital story, or some other strange kind of assignment that isn't a conventional class presentation, you may be interested in the Digital Media Lab at the Carmichael Library.
The Digital Media Lab offers a range of technology, equipment, and assistance on your multi-media and digital assignments. We have microphones, mixing boards, video editing software, digital voice recorders, and more. Mike Price is happy to help you out at any time, and this semester, we've released a completely automated scheduling system. You can log on to our new website and book a time in the Digital Media Lab whenever you'd like. Just click here to see when the lab is available.
When you book a time, click on the green time slots, and then you'll fill out a short form with some questions about your assignment. Someone will write you back to confirm your appointment. If you need time that's longer than an hour, click on multiple slots at the same time. We look forward to seeing you this semester.
