Instruction and Tutorials

In addition to open workshops offered throughout the year, the staff in the MaxxSouth Digital Media Center has the technology and digital literacy expertise to help make your online, hybrid, and face-to-face instruction more engaging for your students. Our staff can work with you to answer questions, create content, and to explain how to integrate our technologies into your curriculum to make your job easier and the end result stronger. A key value of the MaxxSouth Digital Media Center is the empowerment of all users, from beginner to advanced, so that users become independent and proficient in high-end professional production and editing software that enhances their skill sets.
