DMT Summer 2012

The Digital Media Tutors are finishing up another busy summer helping faculty get ready for the Fall. Our veteran Tutors (Christian, CIre, Erik, and Eshetu) helped out part of the summer or from a distance, while our new Tutors (Adam, David, Graciela, Harry, Jeff, Max, Mugo, Tran) ramped up their skills quickly to help over 40 faculty complete 90+ projects.

Most of the projects involved migrating courses and course resources out of Segue to WordPress and Moodle. Some of these sites are available to the public, while others are limited to a Midd or MIIS login. Some of these sites are new personal sites for faculty, places where research and publication information can be collected.

Here are some examples:

http://sites.middlebury.edu/latabladeflandes/el-curso/
http://sites.middlebury.edu/middjazz/
http://sites.middlebury.edu/alisonbyerly/

In addition to digitization projects, the new Tutors also stepped up to the plate and offered iMovie workshops for Language School classes, as well as research and conversations around media, animation and eBook development.

One of the more interesting challenges the Tutors had this summer was figuring out how we were going to manage the space on Middlebury’s new island in Second Life.

As you can see from the pictures below, the space is under development to support language conversation space, as well as government role play.

Guided tours will be available by request.
