Making Sense of Multimedia: Assisting Faculty, Staff and Students

A session at HighEdWeb 2012

  • Daniel Laird

Tuesday 9th October, 2012

4:00pm to 5:30pm (CST)

Providing support to faculty, staff and students for any type of technology can be an arduous undertaking, but possibly more so when it comes to multimedia creation. In addition, experts at multimedia production often assume that “It’s so easy, anyone can do it.” Where can the novices go for help? The various combinations of both hardware and software can be harrowing to any newbie of the craft. With so many choices, what are the best options? SUNY Oswego has introduced Multimedia Services - Campus Technology Services and Penfield Library have collaborated to provide a Multimedia Production Room. The room includes both a PC and Mac with special multimedia hardware and software that can help users create any number of multimedia projects, including custom podcasts and videos. In addition to the multimedia resources mentioned, they also have dedicated personnel to assist faculty, staff and students with their questions and inquiries. During our discussion, we will share with you some of the tools we employ to run the gambit of authoring hugely spectacular and glitzy productions to your run of the mill everyday podcasts - including solutions that you can use in your web browser without installing any software. We will also discuss our training methods for those on campus, the documentation we have on our multimedia websites, our future plans for the room, as well as our marketing approach.
