Access Instructions

Available Programs

Multimedia Software

Students who are taking classes remotely and do not have access to campus technology have several options for completing their multimedia assignments.

DaVinci Resolve is a free video editing program that is comparable to Adobe Premier for video editing. Download the at-home, not the studio, version.

ClipChamp is another free video editing program. This one is particularly useful for students with slower  computers. All video editing is done in the cloud, so only an internet connection is necessary. 

Remember: Your reporting and storytelling abilities are what will get you jobs and internships, not the equipment that you use. Many professional journalism organizations use smartphones instead of thousand-dollar cameras and free or inexpensive software as well.
