The DLC offers customized support for students, faculty, staff, and the broader MIIS community in the form of individual consultations and group workshop trainings. We also offer the D Sp@ce for communal use.
We encourage you to contact us and visit the DLC for help with projects you are working on.
Getting Help at the DLC – Drop–ins and Appointments
MIIS faculty, staff, and students can visit the DLC during drop in hours Mon-Fri from 12-5 pm (note that we have a staff meeting Thursday from 12-12:30 and weekly workshops from 12:30-1:30, but you are still welcome to drop in – we will have someone available to help even during these times). Just look for anyone wearing a name tag or lanyard – we are all happy to help!
During drop-in windows, graduate assistants and staff will be on hand to field questions and assist with projects that might include a variety of tools with digital or design components:
- Photo Editing (basic editing in simple editors and/or Photoshop)
- Video Editing (iMovie or YouTube Editor)
- Audio Recording and Editing / Digital Storytelling / Voiceover Lectures (Garage Band, Audacity, Camtasia)
- Data Analysis (primarily using Excel)
- Website Design / Course Portfolios / Blogging (focused on sites.miis.edu and other website building platforms)
- Design Thinking / Idea Development
- Curricular Technology (Camtasia, Moodle, Adobe Connect, CourseHub, WordPress, and more!)

Skill-Building Workshops & Resources
In addition to our regular drop-in hours, we are hosting a series of skill-building workshops each Thursday from 12:30-1:30 in the Design-Sp@ce located in the McGowan Building at 420 Calle Principal St. View our current calendar of workshops.
We would also like to remind you about our campus-wide access to Lynda.com online video training and tutorials for software you or your students may be working with. To access these videos go to http://go.miis.edu/lynda and login with your MIIS username and password.
Course Project Support
If your class has a digital learning need that we could help with, let us know! Contact us by completing our online Workshop Request Form or send us an email at email@example.com.
We’ve had great success in consulting with classes that are integrating website projects, presentation skills, digital stories, podcasting and tele-collaboration.
In addition to weekly skills sessions, we have reserved three weeks at the end of the semester to host finals-focused workshops in any areas where students might require extra tech help to complete a final project.
Reserving the D Sp@ce
Our Design Sp@ce is a common area that you can customize to your needs, such as classroom-style, lounge area, or small working groups. We encourage students and faculty to reserve the D Sp@ce for classes, events and projects. When not reserved, it’s open to all as a place to come study, have meetings, or just hang out between classes. View our online availability calendar here.
