What is the SPACE (Student Production And Collaborative Education)?
The SPACE is a section of the Computer Access Lab dedicated to developing group projects & presentations.
Students may use this area to work alone or in groups to practice speeches, produce and edit video or create and edit sound files.
In addition to the software and most of the equipment that is available in the Computer Access Lab, SPACE has sound and video editing software (Sound Forge and Vegas Pro). Second Life is also available on all of our computers for students who may need it for their class.
