MMED 764 The I’s Have It: iMovie/iTunes/iPhoto In Music Education

3 credits 45.0 hours
700 level graduate course

Students in today’s schools are media centric; watching hundreds of channels of television, browsing the internet on their phones and tablets, while carrying their entire music, video, and photo collections on their personal devices. Students who have been raised in this environment learn well through video, audio, and other media. Finding and creating quality video and other multimedia materials for the music classroom will be the focus of this class. Projects will include identifying, editing, recording and using (1) instructional videos for music classes, (2) slide shows and animations illustrating musical concepts, (3) video and other multimedia projects for students which encourage their understanding of music, (4) audio and video podcasts, (5) YouTube videos, and (6) a persuasive video supporting the study of music, the arts, or the music program. Topics will include planning, design, recording, editing, copyright, licensing, and the live broadcast of concerts and other school events. This course is designed for experienced and novice users. Whether your experience is confined to watching the last concert recorded by a parent, or you are a professional videographer, this class has something to offer. It will be taught in a hands-on environment using Macintosh computers, Korg keyboards, and Apple’s iLife suite including iMovie, iPhoto, iTunes, and GarageBand. Windows users who bring their laptops will benefit from the class, and may complete projects using the built-in software on their computers.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
