Testimonials

“I started using MediaStorm's Online Training videos as a part of a flipped classroom, so that students could learn the "how-to" outside of class, allowing for more hands-on learning and discussion during class sessions. It's been an invaluable set of tools that reach and engage students with varying skills. The support and service from MediaStorm is excellent, which encourages me to continue to be a loyal client.”

Mikki K. Harris, Assistant Professor, Journalism and Sports Program at Morehouse College (current); Assistant Professor, University of Mississippi (2012-2016)


"I have been using MediaStorm's Online Training videos for 6 years now as part of my class curriculum in beginning multimedia classes. They are a great addition to my lectures and help prepare the students for our work outside of the classroom. Brian and his staff have done an excellent job explaining the technical concepts of multimedia storytelling in both an entertaining and easy to understand format that keeps my students engaged while watching the videos."

Laura L. Camden, Associate Professor of Photojournalism and Documentary Studies at Northern Arizona University- School of Communication

 

"I have used MediaStorm’s online training several times for for my students. They are professional writing majors who must combine video with written text to simplify a complicated subject. MediaStorm's video series works wonderfully for them, as they can grasp the theory as well as the techniques.”
