Faculty Support

The SMS provides support for faculty by:

  • providing facilities and equipment for your students to work on their multimedia projects!
  • offering technical assistance to your students working on projects in the studio!
  • creating project specific web and print tutorials for your students!
  • consulting with faculty concerning the most appropriate software to use for multimedia, web or video presentations!

Resources for internet storage and video publishing (exclusively for Kent State faculty and students)

KSU Drop Box
Create a KSU Drop Box for your course then have your students upload multimedia projects, documents, videos, audio files, etc. to share not only with the instructor but with the rest of the class (if the instructor allows students to download files).

KSUTube
Students and faculty can upload videos to KSUTube to share or to link to from webpages. KSUTube videos can also be password-protected and "hidden" from search engines if desired.

Alternate internet storage option (commercial but free)

Dropbox.com
While KSU Drop Boxes can only be created by instructors, students can use this to create their own Drop Box where they can upload, download and share their files with others.

Google Drive
While Google Drive is integrated into our Flashline accounts it's not limited strictly to Kent State users. Anyone can sign up for a free Google account where they can create and store documents, spreadsheets and presentations, along with storing files online.
