Open Session Limited to 60 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

This Studio will introduce participants to the SFU EdMedia educational media creation process. We will practice using a range of tools, focusing on the design, development and distribution of a media asset.

Using examples, case studies and hands on activities, this workshop will take participants through the full creation process. Participants will be asked to bring an idea of a media asset they would like to create, or one they have already begun to develop, which will be worked on in small groups and facilitated by our team. This workshop is intended to remove barriers to media creation by giving participants hands on practice with tools and technology and a plan of action to guide them.

Participants should bring a laptop with any appropriate software they wish to work with during the Studio.  If necessary, participants should bring any hardware they may need support in using.

EdMedia recommend the following software:

For audio - Audacity (free)
For video - iMovie (free), Windows Movie Maker (free), Adobe Premiere, or Camtasia. If you do not want to purchase, please install a 30-trial
For graphics and design  - Adobe Creative Suite, Powerpoint or other open source software like Inkscape, or Pixlr
