Are you teaching this summer or fall and need videos to play within your Moodle course? Or perhaps you are a staff member who needs assistance duplicating DVDs or scanning documents for your professional work?
In addition to providing digital media training to the campus community, Digital Media Center staff are also available to provide support to faculty and staff on a variety of technology-related tasks:
- Duplicating DVDs and CDs
- Converting VHS tapes to DVDs and/or digital videos (for Moodle, WordPress, etc)
- Placing digital video in a Vimeo Pro account that will *only* play within Moodle
- Converting cassette tapes to CDs and .mp3 files
- Scanning images, slides, and documents
- Collaboration in the production of multimedia solutions — video, audio, ebook, print, etc.
- Individual (non-departmental) website support and instruction (WordPress, Dreamweaver, etc.)
There is no charge, though you must supply your own media. Copyrighted videos should adhere to “fair use” provisions, usually meaning 1) only a portion of the video needed for instruction will be copied, and 2) the video will only be shown in a password-protected environment to students in the course.
If you have a project, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
