A Place to Teach, and Learn
The DLL is a great space for courses that are working with multimedia tools. Course-partnerships can include training by DLL Staff (and guests) around multimedia tools needed for specific class projects. We also build custom tools that facilitate various approaches to online collaboration. Following these sessions, students continue working on their projects at the DLL until Dean’s Date.

McGraw DLL also offers instructional workshops each semester, with both graduate student and undergraduate instructors.
In 2016-17, McGraw DLL collaborated with the School of Architecture to offer a workshop series focused on software training, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, AutoCAD, and Rhino. Graduate students from the School of Architecture led 11 out of 12 workshops.
The fall ’17 and spring ’18 multimedia workshop series engages the question “How do I do that?” by examining the workflows and creative processes underpinning creative projects such as posters, podcasts, or videos. Teaching most of these sessions are student staff, or DLL Specialists, who will draw from their rich and varied experiences recording and editing audio, designing posters, making web apps, and crafting film projects.

A Place to Work
When there are no classes or workshops in session, McGraw DLL is a workspace available to all members of the Princeton University community. With 22 Apple computers optimized for multimedia projects, two audio rooms, a collaboration space, and a staff of multimedia enthusiasts nearby, students and faculty can sit down, plug in headphones, and get productive.
Or, you can stop by. The DLL is staffed by a knowledgeable, experienced group of multimedia enthusiasts – DLL Specialists – who can provide an introduction, answer advanced questions, or point you to helpful resources to explore. Feel free to contact a specialist directly to schedule a consultation.
