Multimedia Composition Center
The Multimedia Composition Center (MCC) specializes in helping you prepare for projects beyond the text like speeches, poster presentations, video or audio assignments, digital assignments, and more.
When you visit the MCC, a Multimedia Specialist will talk with you about your composing process and help you brainstorm, revise, or troubleshoot works-in-progress. Multimedia Specialists will respond as your audience and help your present your best, most thoughtfully developed work.
While we don't teach you how to work with a particular program, we can help you to use it in composing your project. If for some reason, we don't know a particular function of the program, we can spend some time in a consultation with the Digital Media Studio to get your best work out there.
Sessions are 25 or 45 minutes long and should be scheduled in advance, when possible. These sessions are intended to strengthen the writer and his/her ability to compose using a variety of technologies. At the UWC, we believe every writer has the capacity to become a stronger writer, and we are excited to assist with this journey.
