Digital Media Course Projects

Educational Media Producers collaborate with Faculty in the development, implementation and support of curricular digital media projects. These projects are developed to meet faculty members’ specific learning goals and enable students to experience and develop critical digital competencies. Projects can range in scope from simple low stakes presentation exercises, to long-term, content-rich, public-facing products with professional results. Media producers collaborate with faculty to determine appropriate hardware and software, develop achievable project timelines, and deliver robust project-focused technology workshops while also providing support to students throughout the project process. 

To request a consultation about a digital media course project, submit a Digital Support Request.

Past media projects include: 

  • Podcasts / Audio News Pieces
  • Digital Narrative Videos
  • Short-Form Documentaries
