Digital media is commonly viewed as holding great promise for enhancing teaching and learning. However, the difficulties and limitations associated with file storage and delivery of digital assets can prove to be non-trivial roadblocks that can prevent instructors and students from integrating digital media into their curricular lives. The College of Liberal Arts (CLA) Office of Information Technology at the University of Minnesota (U of M) has developed an archiving and distribution system for images, audio, and video media. The environment, called MediaMill, allows users to store and archive uncompressed media and then create any number of derivatives optimized for a host of outputs, including (but not limited to) slideshows, dvd, flash video, streaming video, and podcasts (including the associated RSS). MediaMill has come into wide adoption at the U of M: by central OIT units, by departments within CLA, by individual instructors, and by students.
