Penn State Media Commons

Media Commons at Penn State.

A Common Approach to Digital Content Creation: The Media Commons is a University-wide initiative to help enrich students’ educations by creating digital content for their coursework. The Media Commons provides all campuses within Penn State with a common set of computing tools, a common set of support materials, and a common set of opportunities to create digital media of all kinds. The Media Commons also helps educate faculty, staff, and students on the appropriate uses of digital media.

View more information about the Media Commons. The website includes a project created by Smeal students in Marketing 422: Tradition Meets Innovation.

The Media Commons also provides information regarding the use of copyright materials in digital projects.
