Creative Services Celebrates Four Years of Serving LMU

Creative Services is an ITS department devoted to the creation of educational multimedia content for LMU faculty and staff.  The department, led by manager Matt Frank and supported by Kevin Diep, Media Support Specialist, and a band of student workers offers filming, editing, podcasting, and web projects. Creative Services also works closely with the Instructional Technology team to consult with LMU faculty and staff on innovative pedagogical practices that integrate technology into the classroom experience. Since the official formation of the department in Fall 2011, an average of 100 projects a year have been completed, totaling over 400 separate projects created for the LMU community—an impressive milestone for a department that started with two graduate assistants and a Classroom Capture pilot project!

Over the next few weeks on the blog, we’ll feature some of our favorite Creative Services videos. You’ll get a chance to see LMU faculty working with their students on passion projects, get a look at updated spaces on campus, and even see a couple of fun promotional videos created for services you can use as a member of the LMU community, including lynda.com and Blackboard Mobile.

LMU Life Sciences Building: Learning Spaces

Just weeks away from the first day of the 2015-16 academic year, here’s the last video in the LMU Life Sciences Building series. This video is all about how the new LMU Life Sciences Building puts science on display, and encourages students to learn by doing. The main way they’ll do that? By attending classes in state-of-the-art labs and classrooms designed for hands-on, active learning. These classrooms and labs are almost ready to welcome Seaver College of Science and Engineering students, but the video is a great way to sneak in before the school year starts—and hear how Seaver professors Jeremy McCallum, Hawley Almstedt, and Victor Carmona will use some of the spaces for their teaching. Plus, you’ll get to meet Information Technology Services’ very own Matt Frank, the manager of Classroom & Creative Services, who worked tirelessly to help equip the new classrooms and labs.
