The Media Commons located in the Undergraduate Library is a collaborative campus effort that provides students, staff and faculty opportunities to experiment with digital media and other emerging technologies, with expanded opportunities to learn of best practices in educational media creation. In addition to a robust loanable technology program, the Media Commons is a service space that offers faculty, staff, and students the ability to create, use, and curate digital media. The goal is to meet the need for broad access to media creation tools, information technology training in multimedia hardware and software, and instruction in media literacy. Eric will cover the basics of the Media Commons as well as show examples of current emerging technology and media tools.
