Introduction to Digital Media
Hands-on approach to multimedia production techniques. Develops understanding of image software, video software, scanners, digital cameras, digital video cameras, and graphics tablets.
The most valuable learning I gained from this course was the hands-on experience using each program to create media. I had a great deal of experience in finding and curating media for use in my classroom, but hadn't put much time into creating my own. I feel much more confident to do that now. I'm also more confident in assisting students with these programs when they're working on independent projects (although my general teaching philosophy is "be less helpful," it's certainly nice to know that I could be helpful if I really needed to be). This course enabled me to create engaging, professional media to enhance my instruction in ways I hadn't previously considered.
