Together educators and students are discovering how the sounds, colors and images of multimedia make the concepts they are discussing more accessible.
If you are interested in using multimedia in your courses but aren't sure how, making an appointment with the staff at the Faculty Multimedia Center (FMC) is a good place to start.
At the FMC, you can discuss your ideas with consultants who are experienced with audio, video, and graphics tools. They can show you how to use software and equipment to create and edit materials. They can demonstrate how to convert the media that you already use, like slides, photographs, and video recordings to digital format. And they can help you learn how to incorporate your digital media into a seamless, computer-based presentation or Web page.
If you are already familiar with multimedia tools, you can arrange to work independently on FMC workstations.
Multimedia has the potential to help you bring your students closer to the topics you teach. Consider how the Faculty Multimedia Center can help you expand your options for teaching!
