Academic Multimedia Support Services (AMSS)
Academic Multimedia Support Services (AMSS), under the auspices of the Office of Academic Affairs, is primarily responsible for the design, development, and delivery of innovative educational products and services that support the teaching and learning goals of the faculty and students at the C.W. Post Campus. The office is comprised of a team of full- and part-time staff and student workers that not only provides “traditional” audiovisual services and support (including the maintenance and repair of audiovisual classroom equipment and “smart” classrooms), but also works with the faculty to design interactive multimedia content that meets their educational objectives and supports blended and online instructional technologies and course content.
Currently the department maintains over 60 “Enhanced Classrooms” across the campus. These classrooms contain equipment such as LCD projectors, large screen LCD Displays as well as full audio support. Any instructor or student can simply “plug-in” to the room and instantly display anything from a slide presentation to a full cinematic event.
A small sample our ever growing capabilities:

Video taping of any event from Classroom lectures to small conferences
Preparation of video for conversion for multiple uses such as Podcasts or Internet Streaming
