Student Digital Media Assistants

STAs are responsible for answering basic software questions pertaining to our digital media equipment housed in the Taylor 205, CoRE, and the Media Studio. They are responsible for maintaining the computers at the Digital Media Bar, restocking printers, etc. STAs will be expected to read and report about new technical innovations on the Educational Technology website, learn about the media creation software Educational Technology supports, explore emerging technologies, and offer workshops to help fellow students learn how to use our supported software to create media projects. STAs may be given clerical projects or data analysis and visualization projects. Exceptional STAs may be embedded in classes or departments to directly support faculty or class projects. Educational Technology has several openings for our STA position.

Colleen Gilfether

Colleen hails from Oberlin, Ohio, but Wooster is really the place she calls home. She is a senior philosophy major interested in ethics, morality, education, law, and social services. In between co-presiding over k(no)w, singing in the Wooster Chorus, and catching up on Kant, Colleen likes to expand her portfolio and skills. If you need help, ice cream and school supplies typically does the trick.

Nhan (Todd) Le

Todd is currently a biology major in the College of Wooster. He is probably going for pre-Vet because he feels that animals are more worth saving than human. Music is his second interest, and thus he can help you with Audacity and stuff like that. He, much like everyone else in this college, is old enough to experience both of the world’s largest operating systems so he can also help you with Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, or Macintosh’s Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.
