The DLL is currently CLOSED for renovations. We will open a temporary space in Lewis 134 starting June 6th. Sorry for the inconvenience

Spring 2019 Multimedia Workshops

“The Digital Learning Lab was the perfect site to edit my video. All the necessary components and programs are there – super fast computers, calibrated screens, sound booths, a nice, easy to use projector, and a very knowledgeable staff. It is the most productive video editing space I could ask for. Thanks for this resource.”

“The DLL is where I and most other editors of student-run publications on campus do our work.  Having Adobe InDesign on every computer, large monitors for laying out my magazine, and plenty of storage available for files, has been a huge help in getting the AFP magazine up and running.”

“The Digital Learning Lab has been an extremely valuable resource for building SignSchool, an online learning platform for American Sign Language. We were able to use the lab’s state-of-the-art video editing equipment to make our videos look and sound very professional. The staff was also super supportive, helping us setup the equipment and always happily answering our questions.”

“The DLL had been my go-to since sophomore year. If I wanted to work on a project, explore multimedia interests (that were way too expensive to do on my own!), or be in the company of creative and curious peers, I knew the DLL was my one stop shop. I learned so much from just hanging out there. It’s a truly unique spot on campus.”

I first came to the DLL for its graphic design software and Wacom tablet. I was new to digital illustration and had been making complicated graphics using Microsoft Word — a painful experience. The student staff at the DLL got me up to speed on Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop basics and that lead to further exploration of graphic design. In the years since, I have used the DLL for record digitizing (MP3 files of vinyl from Princeton Record Exchange), basic audio editing, and most recently for its statistical software for thesis research. The DLL computers connect to the H: drive and have much more computing power than my laptop.”

“Ultimately, the DLL is an amazing space full of a variety of tools that you can apply all over campus. For example, just this week I visited the DLL to use the drawing tablet to make a digital illustration for the latest issue of Nassau Weekly, I drafted a poster design for an upcoming event in the Art Museum, and I used the scanners and Adobe software to digitize a project for my entrepreneurship class. From data to design, audio to film, the DLL has resources for any creator.”

“The Digital Learning Lab…is a space designed for interdisciplinary exploration of teaching and learning with multimedia…Not only do students benefit from learning in a highly interactive space, but also they benefit from the support of student DLL Specialists as they work on their projects.”

Dannelle Gutarra Cordero, Ph.D., Lecturer, Princeton Writing Program

“In my class I wanted to try something new and since I love listening to podcasts I thought it would be a fun way to have students think not only about a different audience but also a different medium… By being creative with a topic, actually creating something new, I found that that could be a very powerful and lasting way to make learning concrete. So working on these podcasts with the Digital Learning Lab helped us make connections between what we were reading and what students were creating in very tangible ways.”

Collaboration

Five triangular table clusters will organize the room for active pedagogy, group projects, and peer-to-peer instruction, while improving traffic flow and accessibility in the space. Two wall-length whiteboards and movable whiteboard walls offer a canvas for epic brainstorming sessions.

Wireless Screen Sharing

A 10-foot by 30-foot 4K screen will provide ample room for students and faculty to share their smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop screen wirelessly with the video wall. A collaborative space this size, unique on Princeton’s campus, will up an inspiring range of possibilities for teaching and learning with technology.

Immersive Sound

At the DLL, students record and edit multitrack recordings that dramatically combine narration, sound effects and music. Adding five HD speakers and Princeton’s cutting-edge audio-processing software, the DLL wil be a laboratory for immersive audio editing.
