About Digital Learning & Media Design

Our Emmy® Award-winning producers and directors have expanded the frontiers of educational media. GSU’s production team travels the world to construct video documentaries of events and phenomena, interview experts renowned in their fields, and edit features on important issues from beyond the classroom. We are one of the first upper division universities to produce educational courseware in high-definition (HD) video. Artists and educators in the division have also created award winning national teleconferences, public affairs shows, and multimedia courseware.

DLMD has always been an integral part of the university, with two professional TV studios, audio production and editing rooms, graphics and animation facilities, a full complement of engineering talent and a university wide distribution capability — the wave of the future in education. 

DLMD has evolved into a full service media production facility, creating educational video and multimedia programs, public affairs shows, documentaries, satellite broadcasts, and dramatic programs as well as graphics, photography, audio, and training in the use of Internet technologies for instruction. DLMD is recognized by leaders in the video industry, such as Panasonic, as being a “state-of-art HD production studio.”
DLMD staff have won many national awards for educational media, print, online teaching, and national satellite programs throughout the years.

DLMD pioneered the "Teleclass" which proved to be very popular with students. The classes continue to play on PBS learning channels throughout the country. As distance learning became digital, DLMD evolved to produce online media-rich courses and multimedia training, partnering with nationally recognized organizations, such the American Psychological Association, the Child Welfare League of America and Illinois DCFS to produce training material for international distribution on DVD, CD and online. 

In addition, DLMD also serves many of the A/V needs of the University faculty, staff and administration by designing audio, and multimedia pieces for use in marketing, recruitment, internal communications and student information.

The staff includes a wonderfully talented group of video designers and directors, graphic designers, a marketing & distribution department, and accomplished engineers.
