What is the Glendon Digital Media Lab (GDML)?
The Glendon Digital Media Lab is a technological and pedagogical resource with components available at three locations on the Glendon Campus of York University:
- The reserve desk of Frost library has the cameras, tripods, recorders, microphones and other accessories (list of equipment)
- The computer lab in York Hall 144 has 12 Mac’s and high-performance PC’s equipped with the entire Adobe Creative Suite and other editing software such as Camtasia Studio.
- Still a dream but soon a reality: a recording studio. More details will be announced as soon as they are available.
The GDML supports experiential educational projects in Glendon courses and extracurricular projects for student members of the Glendon Digital Media Club by providing access to technological equipment.
It encourages self-learning about digital media tools and digital storytelling by providing a library of video and textual resources on the GDML web page (consult the tutorial section, the videos under the description of each equipment kits, and digital storytelling section). A series of in-person workshops are also offered during the academic year. The Glendon Digital Media Club provides peer-mentoring.
