Remix Mc Main Copy2

Hesburgh Libraries and the Kaneb Center for Teaching and Learning have launched two new service platforms, Remix and Media Corps, to help faculty, staff and students build multimedia skills and promote teaching and learning with digital media.

Remix is a website that features step-by-step guides for multimedia projects and a showcase of student works. Media Corps, created in partnership with the Office of Information Technologies, is a team of undergrad coaches who consult on Remix projects and help the campus community learn how to capture, edit and produce digital media. Together, these services are designed to address the increasing demand for developing advanced multimedia skills in today’s digital world.

Remix.nd.edu is an online teaching and learning platform that features student projects in four essential media literacy categories: images, audio, video and data. The Remix website has a two-tiered approach designed to meet the growing demands of faculty and students. It is a teaching tool to help faculty better understand, adopt and evaluate specific multimedia project assignments. It is also a guide for students to help them plan and complete multimedia projects as well as build core digital literacy skills.

The dynamic, open-access platform is organized into four sections:

  • Showcase: Get inspired by this portfolio of completed Remix projects.
  • Media 101: Review the building blocks of multimedia literacy. 
  • Projects: Get step-by-step instructions for multimedia assignments.
