Resources for Makerspaces (March 2019): Multimedia

by Janet Ochs, Richard Powell, and Lisa Czirr


Beyond the categories already discussed, makerspaces can offer opportunities to experiment with various forms of media such as video, audio, digital photos, and podcasting. They may also provide small recording areas and software for creating, manipulating, or editing in a specific digital medium.

Adobe’s Creative Cloud is an all-purpose tool that works with a variety of multimedia. Jennifer Smith and Christopher Smith’s Adobe Creative Cloud All-in-One for Dummies covers Adobe’s suite of design tools all in one swoop. Chapters cover Adobe Bridge, Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Illustrator CC, Acrobat, and Adobe XD. If your makerspace uses this software or even just one or two of its components, this book is essential.
