Adobe Premiere Rush and One-Minute Video Challenge
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Students

The UofL Digital Media Suite (DMS) and Adobe are sponsoring a one-minute video contest. This video creation contest challenges students to create a short video (60-90 seconds) that provides encouragement and/or suggestions for staying healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, whether that is physically, emotionally, or mentally.

To learn more about the contest and support the creation of your video, you are invited to attend a 1-hour tutorial session that will introduce Adobe Premiere Rush. This session will demonstrate the first steps to creating a video editing project, including the default layout of the app, importing footage, basic timeline editing, and exporting a new video file.

Premiere Rush is available to you free as a UofL student as part of our Adobe Creative Campus initiative.

UofL Staff and Faculty

The Nystrand Center continues to push education forward, whether it is in the classroom, the operating room, or the athletic film room. Come learn how you can too with Immersive Virtual Reality.

Virtual reality is the future. Rather than be skeptical, get ahead of the curve and learn how this “new normal” can actually enhance education, health, and leadership.

Immersive Virtual Reality (IVR) is a rapidly advancing technology utilized across varying education fields to allow for potential learning and educational applications. IVR provides the capabilities of computer simulations and embodied cognition experiences through a hands-on activity, making it a natural step to improve learning (Madden et al., 2020).
