About Us

what-is-the-digital-studio.jpg

With two locations (room 222-B in the Williams Building and room G0062 in the Johnston Ground Building), the Digital Studio is a learning facility where both students and faculty can work on and receive tutoring assistance in composing digital and multimedia assignments/projects.  Such assignments/projects include but are not limited to:  designing an electronic portfolio, designing a website, creating a blog, composing a visual essay, selecting images to embed in a text, adding audio and/or video into a text, and creating a presentation.  In other words, the Digital Studio is not an ordinary computer lab.

Tutors who staff the Digital Studio can help brainstorm project ideas, provide feedback on the content and design of a digital project, facilitate collaboration for group projects and presentations, and/or explain the interface and nuances of a given program.  In short, the Digital Studio can help you at any stage of the composing process, whether your needs are rhetorical, programmatic, or both.  However, those attending the Digital Studio are not required to work with a tutor:  the Digital Studio is also open to those seeking to work on their own to complete assignments/projects or to improve overall capabilities in digital communication.

The tutors in the Digital Studio have expertise working with the following programs:
