The Digital Convergence Lab is looking for students for two experiential learning projects for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014.
Environmental Safety - We are looking for talented students to build interactive learning modules based on safety in science labs. These modules will be interactive and fun. This Fall 2013 team will develop a product designed by the Spring 2013 team. Specifically we are looking for students from Computer Science, Visual Communications, Time Arts, Education, and the sciences.
Student Services Mobile App - This student team will design and develop a mobile app to help NIU students find answers about NIU. The design team will take place in the fall of 2013. The development team will take place in the spring of 2014.
This project will bring together the areas of retention, technology and smart device application development, and art to create a smart device application that will appeal to current and prospective students and their families to help them seek answers to pertinent questions regarding NIU.
Student teams are supported by a faculty coach and professional staff at the Digital Convergence Lab (DCL). The DCL works with student’s departments and colleges to enroll students in a for-credit independent study, practicum, or internship within their degree program. Students interested in participating on a team should contact Jason Underwood email@example.com or Aline Click firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be prepared to submit a resume and attend an interview as part of the selection process.
