We are pleased to announce that the College of DuPage Library’s Media Lab is now open for student use:
Three years in the planning, the Media Lab is a place “where COD students can create and edit all kinds of digital audio, video, and images. The Lab consists of four imaging stations and two separate A-V editing suites. The Lab is free for all COD students to use--you just need a valid COD Library card.” During the hours that it is open, the Media Lab is staffed with assistants who are prepared to help students using the equipment and software.
Increasingly in today’s workplace and for students in any program of study, digital literacy requires more than knowledge of computer technology for word processing or spreadsheets. It also requires the ability to edit and implement media elements for projects, portfolios, or simply for personal enjoyment. In creating this Media Lab, our desire has been to provide a place where all students in all programs of study can experience firsthand what it takes to design, create, and produce a media project.
For the experienced student who needs access to a high-end Mac workstation to finish a project, or for the new user who would like to experiment with Adobe’s Creative Cloud software for the first time, the Media Lab is the right place to be. For more information and for the hours of service, please see the Media Lab’s web page at http://codlrc.org/lab.
