Digital Humanities Center Tutorials

While the Digital Humanities Center (DHC) has been closed during the pandemic, we’re still here virtually for all of your DH needs!

In addition to our virtual programming and other remote services, we’ve been hard at work developing self-paced tutorials for a range of digital tools: https://tinyurl.com/dhc-public-tutorials. 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 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 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 recent workshop). Catherine Qui is creating our newest batch of tutorials. She’s focusing on FontForge for creating your own fonts and Twine for interactive storytelling. These tutorials should be launching by the end of 2020 or early 2021, with even more coming in the spring semester!
