The W&M eLearning Community met in the new improved Media Center located on the ground floor of the Earl Gregg Swem Library on Wednesday, April 29, 3-4:00pm. The space was designed with creativity, technology integration and adaptability as core values. The new media center will support the creation of alternative academic assignments related to digital literacy and the new curriculum.
The renovated space includes:
- A Media Lab with enhanced hardware and software for specialized multimedia work, and the ability to reserve work space for individuals and groups;
- Two library instruction classrooms planned for maximum flexibility and technology experimentation, and a teaching space for faculty/librarian collaboration;
- Dedicated production room that will meet the increasing demand for filming and capturing video content;
- New office and storage space to support the circulation and management of equipment that has long been a core service of the Media Center.
