Digital Humanities Center Tool Tutorials

In addition to our programming and other services, we’ve been hard at work developing self-paced tutorials for a range of digital tools.

These tutorials can be found on the Digital Humanities Initiative YouTube channel (Tool Tutorials and Tutoriales en Español playlists): https://tinyurl.com/dh-initiative-youtube Our tutorials typically include slide decks, videos, and transcripts (often in English and Spanish). 

Now that students have free access to the Adobe Creative Cloud, we’ve developed several tutorials for Adobe apps, including: Audition (audio editing software), Premiere (video editing software), After Effects (animation editing software), and PhotoShop (photo editing software). To support growing interest in podcasting -- both in the classroom and for research purposes -- we’ve expanded our podcasting tutorials, which include our Fall 2020 five-part podcasting workshop series (watch the workshop recordings). And for those interested in textual analysis, we’ve got English and Spanish-language tutorials for using Voyant.

Our tutorials were created by a wonderful group of DHC staff, including Cassie Tanks (Digital Humanities Assistant, Spring-Summer 2020) and Fabrizio Lacarra-Ramirez (Digital Humanities Specialist, Spring-Summer 2022), and our student assistants: Riki Ito, Keonna Kinshasa, and Lindsey Cannon. Dr. Pam Lach, DH Librarian and DH Center Director, also contributed tutorials on podcasting and Voyant (watch her workshop). Catherine Qui developed tutorials on FontForge for creating your own fonts and Twine for interactive storytelling. Finally, Mik Knight, Allie Henderson, and Andrea Berreondo have been hard at work producing tutorials on Scalar. We expect these tutorials to be launching very soon!
