E-learning and New Media

Multimedia frames stories and conveys information using the integration of video, images, audio, and animation. With the ever-increasing availability of broadband access, Web-based multimedia is an especially effective way to extend and enhance much of what we do at the university. EESC uses the latest multimedia authoring tools to create new media projects and where possible seeks to equip OSU faculty to use these tools as well. Please see our tools section and upcoming workshops.

EESC is also fluent with the latest social media platforms and tools. Social media helps foster engagement with students, program volunteers, and colleagues. Social media is also an indispensable tool in promoting awareness of a program and organizing communities of practice and affiliation. 

As communication educators, EESC is experienced in developing new media deliverables that are instructional in nature. When developing e-learning content, we use instructional design to ensure our deliverables match the needs of the audience and also meet instructional and programmatic objectives.   

Some of the multimedia and e-learning authoring tools we use:

Flash, Presenter, Captivate, Camtasia, Pachyderm, Premiere, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, SoundForge, Dreamweaver, and Photosynth

Some social media platforms and tools we use:

Facebook, Ning, Flicker, Twitter, Wordpress, PBworks
