The Connected Commons

Connecting Service

Media Commons is the longest-standing of several innovative technology-driven creative services offered by Teaching and Learning with Technology at Penn State. The Immersive Experiences Lab pushes the boundaries on video and audio production, putting audiences inside educational media in brand new ways.

Maker Commons encourages learners to get hands on with tomorrow’s tools like 3D printers and to experiment with solutions via rapid prototyping in the Invention Studio.  The Design Experiences Lab offers a space to crash course through the fundamentals of intentional, generative practice.
