STAC: The Gentle Way to Learn Multimedia Skills

September 30, 2011

One place on campus offers all Wright State students from all majors an opportunity to experience the latest educational technology: The Libraries' Student Technology Assistance Center (STAC) in the Paul Laurence Dunbar Library. The STAC opened in September 2001 and now helps over 20,000 students per year learn new technologies in a friendly, instructive, and creative environment. The STAC is dedicated to preparing students for a lifetime of learning in an increasingly technological world.

The STAC provides the tools for students to create original academic and creative works using both Windows and Macintosh computers and the latest software applications. They can also transform traditional materials such as printed documents, photographs, and analog media into digital formats and use these digital files to produce dynamic educational presentations (websites, movies, podcasts, presentations and more).

Trained student mentors share their wealth of experience, skills, and backgrounds to assist students with projects in an easy, unique peer-to-peer learning environment. All students walk out of the STAC with valuable skills that can enhance their grades and increase their marketability to prospective employers.

Wright State faculty members are encouraged to incorporate the STAC in their classes to help students learn how to create interesting and valuable multimedia projects while developing current technology skills - knowledge that will serve them well throughout and beyond their academic careers.
