Technology-based Projects

Creative Technology Assignments

 

Students love the option to be creative and explain a topic through other media besides video. The Center for Teaching and Learning wants to support this creativeness, which is why we have several software programs available in our Media Lab for students to design and create something different that will further enhance their learning process.

 

If you need assistance or would like to discuss the possibilities of assigning a technology-based project, please contact Candace Wentz or Todd Sheene in the CTL.

 

 

 

Comic Life

 

Comic Life is a software program that is installed on three of the computers in the CTL Media Lab. This software has many capabilities such as creating a comic. You can bring in your own photos, write and develop your own story which allows students to think critically and develop their writting skills.

 

In addition Comic Life has many templates and frames which can be used if you need to storyboard out an idea. Some examples of frames/templates within in Comic Life are listed below.
