The live course provides you with a computer workstation and all required software in the classroom. Wireless Internet connectivity and ports (Ethernet) are provided in our classroom. Our goal is to use basic, off-the-shelf software tools and online services that are either free, or are provided a nominal cost. Also check out this link for several free alternatives to commercial multimedia applications.
Most peripheral equipment like cameras, mics, tripods, and cables may be obtained through the Equipment Services Lab (ESL) in Franklin 106. If you are taking this class at the Stark Campus, the library has some gear and they will have a list with your names. You may need to purchase your own reusable media.
All of the computers provide in the classroom are Apple/Macintosh. Most of the software tools provide downloads for cross-platform applications to make it possible for you to use at home or on a PC.
