Learn about digital media

Dear Editor:

Everyone knows the economy is not doing well now, but all sectors are not affected equally. The technology sector has survived the recession better than most, which is why we have focused our Digital Media Club on helping people interested in web design to network and find client leads from one another.

Starting this month web design students from Colorado Mountain College will be meeting monthly to share questions, ideas and job leads. The sessions have been amazingly productive. Not only have students succeeded in continuing their education and learning from one another, but many have also found lucrative client referrals.

The club isn’t just for students, though. We invite anyone to attend our free meetings and share their ideas. The Digital Media Club is a great place for business owners, job seekers or anyone responsible for a website in a business or organization. At our next meeting we will present “Hands On FaceBook For Business,” a how-to session on how to create, set up and maintain FaceBook sites for businesses and nonprofit organizations. The meeting will take place at the CMC Aspen campus, located at 0255 Sage Road in the Airport Business Center, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 26. (Monthly meetings alternate between Aspen and downvalley CMC locations.)

Anybody who would like more information is welcome to call me at 930-1262 or e-mail me at rbrandt@coloradomtn.edu. Please also check out our website, http://www.digitalmediaclub.org.
