Digital Media Studio

In-person training

When possible, our help desk staff will answer all questions immediately, but for in-depth questions we may suggest online training or a tech coach appointment. We will not do your project for you, but we will assist in training on equipment and software. 

Tech Coach: Schedule a 45 minute one-on-one appointment with a Tech Coach when you need in-depth task-specific assistance on any of our multimedia software applications. For comprehensive training on a software topic, see our online training options. Use our online form or call 615-904-8526 to schedule an appointment. Please give at least 72 hours notice for a training request.

Studio Tours: We would love to show you around the place! We would prefer to know in advance that you and/or your group are coming, but we will accommodate drop-ins as we can. To schedule a tour, call 615-904-8526 or email
