Digital Media at Columbia---Did you Know?
Digital content developed at Columbia, including fee-based learning experiences such as e-seminars developed by Columbia DKV, are FREE to the Columbia community. Using a Columbia network computer, Columbia students, faculty and staff can gain free access to the growing selection of e-seminars featuring Columbia faculty through Columbia Interactive. Once users are registered for an e-seminar and have a password, they can use a non-network computer to gain access to that e-seminar from outside the Columbia network.
There are 904 faculty members who have worked with the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning in the development of course websites and tools for the classroom (52 percent are senior faculty).
More than 13 Columbia University centers and institutes explore digital media issues in research, teaching and learning.
