During fall of 2012, CETL offered a program to provide support to educators to enhance student learning and facilitate greater student involvement through creating a 3 to 5 minute digital story on at least one of the first four themes below:University Liberal Education Learning Goals (LELG's), such as communication, critical thinking, diversity/global citizenry, creative expression or interdisciplinary connection;
The digital stories were produced with technical support provided by CETL's AudioVisual Specialist David Orts and funding support from CETL, as well as the Center for Academic Service-Learning, when applicable. Below are some of the early results. Note: Some "Mac" users experience clicks and sound problems when viewing the digital stories below in "wmv" format. VLC media player is free software http://www.videolan.org/ that eliminates these Mac issues. Be careful not to click on other products that you do not need and could be charged for.
