What is "New Media"?
The New Media Center is a member of the New Media Consortium, an international, not-for-profit affiliation of learning-focused organizations, dedicated to helping institutions of higher education enhance teaching through the use of new media and new technologies.
According to the New Media Consortium, the term “new media” can be described as “new technology, such as DVD, haptics, streaming video, wireless transmission, and Internet 2… new uses for existing technologies, such as digital libraries, interactive story telling, and distance learning.”
A popular misconception is that we are a "new" media center, so many ask if there was an “old” media center. Actually, we are a center for new media (Wikipedia link).
