Digital Learning Studio (DLS) Changes to Digital Media Commons

Design gives students pods of high-end workstations.

The experiment-turned-wildly-popular-resource formerly called the Digital Learning Studio (DLS) has been reborn on the first floor as the Digital Media Commons. A thoughtful design has given students ‘pods’ of high-end workstations where they have the software, processing power, and monitors to pursue multimedia projects for their class assignments and research projects. They have the space to work individually or in groups.

USF President Judy Genshaft has said that one in five USF students are the first ones from their families to go to college, so having access to this often-costly technology and expertise can make a significant difference. The Digital Media Commons (DMC) not only provides computer workstations for students, but also student employees, with a range of software skills, who are on hand to provide assistance to students. Faculty are encouraged to share news of this resource with their students.
