Come along on a tour of our New Media Center which integrates media
in learning environments both on and off campus. You'll see smart classrooms,
faculty and staff who are infusing the curriculum with digital enhancements,
outreach to the community, and development of new curriculum in digital
video and web authoring for our Associate of Fine Arts degree.
We'll give you the first report from this project, barely a month old!
Students in electronic music do a lot of troubleshooting and research
in order to deal with the vast range of software and hardware that they
run into. http://midigod.deanza.fhda.edu/
Plagued by a Horribly Outdated (TM) Student Information System? Wish
you could get into cool stuff on the web, like interactive online registration
but don't know how to make your old codger of a system do the tricks
needed to make it work? See how Terra did it with Schedule Builder,
a locally built web utility for student registration using Perl scripts
that solves these problems seamlessly.
CDROM and Web Page Builder addresses one of the most difficult and complex
topics for Biology students, allowing them to progress at their own
individual rate while tracking their performance. Newly equipped with
computers on their desktops, faculty can use the locally developed application
Web Page Builder to create and update course webpages, automatically
updating the campus website.
This course was developed for our continuing education department,
in partnership with the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS).
The course will provide 4-6 hours of self-paced self-instruction, starting
in January 2000. It uses video (edited using non-linear systems) and
WebCT software to deliver online multimedia content. Get a preview at

This year Terra rolled out three new majors in Digital Media
Technology: eCommerce/Web Design, Digital Communication/Storytelling
& Digital Animation. See the early results through the work of the
students themselves! Learn about this exciting new multidisciplinary
approach that has already exceeded all expectations for enrollments.
We started out five years ago doing high-end multimedia CD-ROMs, and
completed almost three dozen of them. During the past three years, a
team of 15 developers serving five campuses has been able to transfer
the skills we learned to a new kind of support-helping folks who are
applying for grants. As part of a NSF grant proposal, we used video
and the web to develop and distribute GIS (Geographic Information Systems)
lab exercises to two-year programs nationally, and show how industry
actually uses GIS. A Title V grant proposal will focus on the development
of the Instructional Technology Certificate for faculty who are becoming
more proficient with new technology.
