The New York to New Orleans Project: Film Shorts and Feature-length Documentary Overview “I've never felt like I was a part of a movement until I came down here.” These words were spoken by India Menuez, a fifteen-year old New York student in New Orleans. India is part of a student-led organization, NY2NO (New York to New Orleans). In the summer of 2008, the group led more than 200 New York City students on a trip to New Orleans to work for residents of the Lower Ninth ward.
EdLab designed and developed the Discussion Forum Analyzer Tool (DFAT) for the Moodle Learning System. By mining user-submitted content and applying learning algorithms, DFAT tags comments and replies as relevant or non-relevant, and recommends other related discussions and readings. This application was designed to enhance student engagement in course discussion forums by emphasizing the participation of fellow learners and making discussions more efficient and pertinent to students
EdLab founded and supports a Media Design Center (MDC) that serves as a resource for the creation of multimedia products for faculty, students, and administration at Teachers College. MDC is a service unit of the Gottesman Libraries. MDC is a hub for production, and staff engage in all kinds of design and audio/video production work for internal and external clients. They support and document this work with a goal of expanding the community's knowledge of design processes. Documentation is also a vehicle for collaboration on projects within the community.

I recently attended a conference on journalism and entrepreneurship at the CUNY School of Journalism, and I want to share some key takeaways that can be adopted by us as publishers, designers and developers.
