Virginia Tech closed for Labor Day

A cancelled class doesn’t have to mean a loss of hours of instructional time. TLOS offers strategies for creating and posting material, and communicating with your students in the event of a cancelled class so you can maintain momentum in the teaching and learning process. Find out more at

Fall Hours and Scheduled Closings

Welcome back everyone!  Starting Monday, August 24th, the InnovationSpace will resume normal fall hours.  These hours, as well as our scheduled closings for the semester, are posted on the left hand side of our website.  

New Loan Equipment and Lab Computers

During the summer we were hard at work renovating the lab space!  Come check out the new furniture, layout, and computers. We also added ten new 4K-capable video cameras, ten new digital still cameras, and ten new GoPro Hero4s to our pool of loaner equipment.  As always, equipment loans and lab usage is free!

Free Online Workshops is an amazing source for online learning, and with your VT login is completely free to use! The videos let you work at your own pace, and the website is designed extremely well to help you keep track of what you want to learn and what you have already learned. Additional resources, such as worksheets and templates, are often included. The site is exceptional at teaching technical skills and technique, such as software for video editing, photography, programming, and even animation. Beyond multimedia training, also helps people pick up business principles, money-management advice, and much more. Check it out at!.
