The Lab

Still a work in progress, the DMI Lab in Hodges Hall is an open workspace where students, faculty, and industry will collaborate on the study and development of the future of mass communication. Here students and faculty will work with industry to create digital, social and mobile platforms and to study these platforms’ effects on audiences. Conceptualized as a combination work and research space, the lab features three walls covered in dry-erase paint, with the fourth wall featuring an Internet-enabled and Web conference-ready television featuring both Google TV and Apple TV platforms.
