Learn to create, experiment, and express yourself with words and images on the web. Not long ago, producing multimedia digital content required expensive equipment and deep levels of technical expertise. Now anyone can create, publish, and share compelling works with nothing more complex than a web browser. Free, open licensed texts, images, video, audio and other media are easy to find and re-use in your own creations. Combining this with your own content and a set of free tools gives you tremendously powerful ways to express ideas beyond text and bullet points, whether for a presentation, to share with friends or family, or for a class project.
This hands-on workshop, presented by the Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute and the Baruch Computing and Technology Center (BCTC), and led by Alan Levine, will teach participants the basics of creating, publishing, and sharing a story in any free web 2.0 tool, using images, audio, and/or video. Your "story" can take many forms: a personal tale, a humorous anecdote, a presentation for a class, part of a research project, or anything else. For a list of some of the tools available to you, visit http://50ways.wikispaces.com/
This workshop is open to all Baruch students, faculty members, and staff. RSVP to Communication.Institute@baruch.cuny.edu
