The University of Pittsburgh has partnered with SensusAccess to offer a file converter tool that makes inaccessible documents (such as Word or PDF files) into more accessible media (such as searchable PDFs, audio MP3 files, Braille, or e-text). SensusAccess is available to all Pitt faculty, staff, students, and alumni that have an active University email address.
Earlier this term, Pitt celebrated the 50th anniversary of an event that would forever change the African-American student experience at the University of Pittsburgh. In our latest episode of TC60, we showcase “Say It Loud: The Black Action Society, The Computer Center Takeover, and Transformation at the University of Pittsburgh” event. The Teaching Center's Academic Digital Media team chronicled the event, which is the feature of this month's installment of TC60.
The Teaching Center's Academic Digital Media team has been collaborating with faculty from the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences on the production of "Flash Classes,” a hyper-abbreviated lecture series on different topics. In the latest edition Dr. Sophia Choukas-Bradley, assistant professor in the Department of Psychology, presents a flash class entitled, "Adolescence in 90 seconds."
