Below are examples of items that have been created using the hardware and software located in the Teaching & Learning Digital Studio (located in the Hekman Library, Room 121). Feel free to take/use whatever you want to.  We only ask that you please credit the T&L Digital Studio for the items that you use.




Video can be a powerful tool — you can use video to tell a story, set a tone, establish a mood for a portion of your class.  For example, this video was shot using an iPad and was put together using Screenflow within the T&L Digital Studio. It was used to discuss the topic of vocation/calling in Calvin’s First Year Seminar course.

Multiple Image

The above image in the stable was edited using Adobe Bridge and Adobe Photoshop. It’s actually a compilation of 5-6 different pictures. This image manipulation can take a lot of time to get right — especially around shadows and lighting — but such a creative exercise can be a lot of fun too!

Erasure with border

The above image in the field was edited using Adobe Bridge and Adobe Photoshop. The image manipulation is a great example of removing items from the image and creating a believable background.
