Haywood Community College is offering a Digital Video and Media Concepts course through the Continuing Education Program this fall. The Digital Video and Media Concepts course will teach the basics of camera selection, video usage, and computer editing to bring new ways to present training or other business material to customers, clients, or employees.

"We will cover how to export video to DVD, the personal computer, standard compact discs, and downloading to a website. We will also examine how to use digital video to create slideshows using digital cameras. Overall, this is an interactive, hands-on class"
