This course offers teachers a chance to learn about digital media that will engage and motivate their students while earning three hours of graduate credit (for EDUC 587). Participants spend much of their time working with software and applications such as Microsoft Photo Story, Windows Movie Maker, and Audacity to create, edit and showcase stories told with digital media.
