The Asian American / Asian Research Institute (AAARI) of the City University of New York (CUNY) has received a grant from the Verizon Foundation to establish a Community / Academia Hi-Tech Bridge Workshop to help local agencies to develop and enhance their presence within the college student community, to highlight their activities, and to attract volunteers from academia.

The Institute’s Hi-Tech Bridge Workshop is aimed at training student clubs and agency representatives with the basic skills of web design, digital photography, video presentation, and webcasting within two training sessions. The workshop will also provide free access and webhosting at a website established by AAARI specifically designed to showcase activities of, and audio/visual programs produced by student clubs and local agencies to the college communities.

Before attending the first session, students will be asked to acquire images, and prepare text that they would like to incorporate into their website. By the end of the first session, students will have created a web page for their club or agency.

By the end of the second session, students will have created their own web page, containing images, text, and streaming video, which will be hosted by the Asian American / Asian Research Institute. Extra sessions will be provided on a monthly basis for students who wish to update their website.

The Community / Academia Hi-Tech Bridge Workshop will cover three core areas:

  1. Web Page Design
  2. Basic Audio/Visual Skills
  3. Video Presentation Design

Session I

  • Introduction

  • Web Page Design (Microsoft FrontPage)

  • Digital Photography

  • Videography (Hi-8, Mini-DV)

  • Webcasting
  • Visual Presentation Design (Visual Communicator*)

Session II

  • Web Page Design

  • Visual Presentation Design (Visual Communicator*)

* Visual Communicator enables anyone to create video presentations that focus attention and compel action more effectively, while saving you time and money. It's also easy, allowing those with no experience to get professional results in minutes without any video editing. From business announcements to student video reports, your presentations can now have the visual impact of a real TV newscast and you can share them on your website or via email, DVD, and PowerPoint.

All participants should bring some pictures (on floppy disk, CD, or photos) regarding the nature of the subject that they wish to present on the world wide web. Pictures can be about themselves, the community, organization, past events, and staff members.

In addition to pictures, participants are advised to bring information about their intended subject. This information might be about 250 words or a paragraph (each) about: mission & objective statements, a brief history about the organization, past & present events, a list of staff members, or biographies. It is preferred that the information should be in a document (.doc) format.
