While it’s great to have the Adoble Creative Cloud software in the Digital Creation Space, you may want to do some creative work at home. Below you will find freeware and apps to help you get the job done on a budget!
Don’t forget that Plano Public Library makes Lynda.com available to you for online instruction in many of these software packages and topics.
The Teen DCS interns at Haggard library have an excellent exhibit of their work from February – November, 2017 on display on the first floor of Haggard Library. Check it out!
Several times per season we teach Podcasting 101 in the Plano Public Library DCS labs. On September 23 we taught it in the Teen DCS at our Haggard Location. Participants learned about various kinds of microphones, file formats, editing software, editing techniques, and most importantly — WHAT IS A PODCAST. They produced a short podcast clip using Adobe Audition, and uploaded the file to a free test account on https://librarytest.podbean.com.
Besides podcasting, the audio recording and editing skills taught in the class can be quite useful for school projects and other hobbies.
