Digital Media Center: Multimedia and Instructional Technology Support for the Campus Community
by Jon Nakasone

Are you looking for new ways to incorporate technology and multimedia into your curricula or projects? How about scanning images for a presentation or publication? Perhaps you'd like to create a Web site for your department or class. Or edit and digitize an audio or videotape and burn it to a CD. Faculty members can get started with WebCT, the course development tool used to put a class on the Web for it to be taught at a distance. There are many ways that multimedia and technology can be used to enhance your work.

Resources and assistance for faculty and staff are available at the Digital Media Center (DMC) located in Kuykendall 105 on the UH Manoa campus. The DMC has the equipment and software you need for your projects, plus a staff to help you get started.

Some of our resources include a PowerMac G4 video editor with Final Cut Pro and iMovie, Toast Titanium for CD burning, Photoshop 5.5 for image editing, Cleaner 5 for video compression, and Dreamweaver 4 for Web site development. The DMC also has top-of-the-line PCs and Macintosh systems you can use if you are away from your office and want to take a quick peek at your email or make that one change to your Powerpoint presentation. Visit our Web site at www.dmc.hawaii.edu for a full list of our services, software, and equipment.

The DMC is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Feel free to stop by during those hours to use the software and equipment. The DMC staff is also available for consultation and individual guidance with your projects. Please e-mail Jon Nakasone or call 956-2719 for an appointment.

The DMC was established in 1996 to provide faculty and staff with training and support in the use of various digital/multimedia equipment and software. It is a member of the New Media Centers consortium composed of academic and corporate institutions nationwide and internationally, seeking ways to incorporate new media into education and training.
