Question of the week of Aug 24 – Using specialized applications

Question: Is there a location on campus where I can use applications such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator if I don’t have it on my computer?

Answer: Our Faculty Development Center located in the Business Service Center (4230 Bldg) room 2093, is available 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Other hours by appointment. Four development workstations – 3 PC and an iMac are available. Photoshop is available on both the PC and Mac platforms. Other software loaded on the various machines include:

  • Adobe Premiere
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Articulate Presenter
  • Final Cut Express
  • Sorensen Squeeze
  • Microsoft Office products
  • Flash Encoder Suite
  • Various other useful utilitarian utilities such as Fetch, Adobe Soundbooth, WSFTP, etc.

We have the ability to capture video from DVDs, VHS tapes, digital videotape (both HD and SD formats). We can also encode video to Flash, Quicktime, RealMedia, and WMV formats. There is a slide copier, as well.

The FDC also has a Wacom tablet for aspiring artists and other technicians who need to be able to draw in a digital format. If there are any other particular programs of interest, just ask and I can tell you whether we’ve got it.
