The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Media Production program was represented at Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s most recent Technology Day (held in August). Jessica Krouse, program graduate, and Timothy Borish, current program student, held seminars discussing ways in which instructors can better engage their students.
Jessica Krouse presented on Using Powtoons. Powtoons is a free animated slideshow program allowing users to create animated characters and objects to tell a specific story. Timothy Borish presented on Using Plotagon. Plotagon gives users the ability to create animated videos and characters by choosing a scene, creating and adding their own actors, adding sound, and more.
The College’s Media Production program features a blend of three major communication fields: television production, radio production, and e-based technologies. Graduates will be prepared for any number of jobs in radio, television, and emerging media (i.e. social media).
Pennsylvania Highlands has five locations across the region: Blair, Ebensburg, Huntingdon, Richland, and Somerset.
