Digital Media Lab
POSTED: OCTOBER 5, 2012
The UKIT computer lab space in the Hub at W.T. Young Library will be undergoing a much anticipated makeover! Based on feedback from the Student Fee Committee, UKIT will be creating a student digital media space to provide online resources, recording equipment, editing stations with software, and technical support for students’ development of their academic media projects. Features of this area, to be developed in stages, will include walk-in recording rooms and collaboration space, as well as an orientation space for students who are not sure how to get started on their media assignments.
UKIT is pleased to partner with UK Libraries and the QEP (Quality Enhancement Plan: Presentation U) as it restructures the space. Phase I will include software installation and updates as well as first configuration of the recording rooms. During Phase II and Phase III, students will see layout of the traditional computer lab change to support collaborative work on presentations and digital projects. Questions about the project may be directed to Peggy Akridge. Completion of the makeover is planned for May 2013
