What We Do

We are a digital literacies program at Seneca affiliated with Seneca Libraries and can be seen as a starting point to creating great digital content. We provide a support system for students, faculty and staff including:

  • workshops and online resources for creating digital media like videos, podcasts, infographics, or digital stories.
  • editing stations, recording studios, equipment and software for creating digital media, as well as equipment and tools for maker projects like 3D printers.

Each workshop and online guide touches on the various aspects of the digital skill covered. For example, a video workshop not only teaches the tools and software required for video creation but also discusses citizenship issues, such as copyright, and privacy. We try to incorporate software and online resources that are freely available, or are freely accessible to Seneca students, staff and faculty.
