As you prepare presentations for classes you may wish to use media equipment such as digital cameras, camcorders, and cassette recorders to capture images, video, and sound for your presentations. To make reservations for equipment visit the Media Reservations Request form.
The Digital Media Center includes workstations, software, and
knowledgable staff to asssist you with digital media projects such as
creating presentations. Flatbed scanners can be used to capture images
from photographs, books, journals, etc. and images may be edited with
image editing software like Adobe PhotoShop. Video can be captured and edited with Adobe Premiere. And finished presentations can be burned to CD-ROM or DVD discs.
Some classrooms are fully equipped with VCRs, computers, and computer projectors for making presentations. Check with Multimedia Services to find out whether your classroom is equipped with the equipment you need. If not you may reserve equipment for delivery to the classroom for your presentation. To make reservations for equipment contact Multimedia Services or visit the Media Reservations Request form.
A number of computer labs are listed on the Computer Lab Index which includes contact information, hours, and access information. Two general computer labs are located in the University Center Lab and the Haley Information Center in the Library.

Digital Media Center
Every ePass account can have a web site associated with it. To set one up go to https://www.plu.edu/htbin/protected/webpage.pl?sub_opcode=2. If you don't have a web site and access the web page registration function, you will be told you have no web site and given a chance to create one. For students and personnel, this creation involves only the click of a button. If you are setting up a web site for a department or organization account, you also have the option of entering a description for your web site link on the PLU web site index page.
Once you click on the button to create the site, it will take about an hour for the request to be processed. If you access the web page registration function before the processing is complete, you will be told that the request is still pending. When processing is complete, the registration function will tell you that you do have a web site and display the link to your site. The link will take you to the default "template" page that the system created for you. The link to your site will also be placed in the appropriate PLU web site index page, listed with either your name or a department/organization description.
So, how do you go about putting your own pages up instead of the default page? The most common way is to use an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program to copy files into your web page space. The details will vary according to the FTP program you use, but here are some things that will be the same, no matter what program you use:
So, what if you no longer want you web site listed on the PLU web page index or accessible to the Internet? You can use the web page registration function to remove your web site. Note: Doing this doesn't get rid of your web pages. It just makes it so no one can get to your site from the Internet and it isn't listed anywhere on the PLU web site. If you change your mind, you can always re-enable your web site. Doing this will not hurt your web pages. The default home page is only created if you don't already have one in the "public_html" directory on the web server.
Removing access to your web site is essentially the reverse of the creation process, in that the system takes up
to an hour to process the request. The web registration function will tell you that a remove request is pending until
it has been processed.
