Interactive Media Center announces June classes

The Interactive Media Center, basement, University Libraries will offer free classes in June. These classes are open to the public. Topics include web design, audio and video digitizing, PowerPoint, Adobe Photoshop, etc. Highlights of classes follow:

Create Flash-based tutorials. Learn about Adobe’s exciting program, Captivate, to create Flash-based tutorials. Captivate can make interactive learning systems, quizzes and tests, and custom screen capture videos.

Introduction to Audacity, Free Audio Editing Software Import audio from any source including direct recording from a microphone. Conduct interviews on tape and create Podcast files. Import into the computer and combine audio tracks and edit to create a new audio file. Export to an MP3 player, CD or cassette tape, include in a movie, on the Web or in a PowerPoint presentation. Learn how to do this for free at your own computer, downloading the software, borrowing our equipment and cables and editing audio tracks.

Web Design Sequence The Special Web Development Sequence is an opportunity for participants to design and built a Web site in a manner that replicates the steps a professional Web developer would follow. Over the course of four sessions participants will take a Web site home page from basic concept to finished page. Two sequences are offered below. Both sequences are identical, but one is offered the mornings, the other in the afternoons. It is OK to "mix and match." Software tools will primarily be Studio 8 Dreamweaver and Fireworks. Participants do not need experience with these programs as it will be gained in the classes. Experienced participants may skip particular sessions. Others who may require specific knowledge may elect to take only one or two sessions.
