About Digital Media Assistants

Digital Media Assistants are responsible for answering basic software questions about Microsoft 365 and Moodle, assist with our equipment housed in CoRE such as our 3D printers, and provide support to students in planning and completing digital media assignments such as podcasts, videos, and posters. Students also help perform basic troubleshooting in the Digital Studio when necessary.

STAs read and report about new technical innovations on the Technology website, learn about the media creation software supported by Educational Technology, explore emerging technologies, and offer workshops to help fellow students learn how to use our supported software. STAs may also work on clerical projects or data analysis and visualization projects. Exceptional STAs may be embedded in classes or departments to directly support faculty or class projects.
