About Us: Technology
Students in the Comm department must be able to have access to an Internet-enabled computer outside of class.
Hardware & Software
The Communication & New Media curriculum provides students with a solid technology foundation using state-of-the-art software and hardware. Our technology classroom is equipped with iMac computers. A few of the software packages students use are:
- Final Cut Studio: Final Cut Pro 7, Motion 4, Soundtrack Pro 3, Color 1.5, Compressor 3.5, and DVD Studio Pro 4.
- Adobe Creative Master Suite : Dreamweaver, Flash, Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat, After Effects
- Microsoft Office: Word, PowerPoint, Excel
- iWork: Pages, Keynote
- iLife: GarageBand, iMovie, iPhoto, iDVD
While it is advantageous for students to have their own computers equipped with the same software used in class, we realize this is simply not within every person's budget. Regular lab hours are available for students to work on projects outside of class.
Online learning environment
The University uses Sakai as its online learning system. Course syllabi, discussion groups and assignments are coordinated using Sakai.
