MaPs support for COMU1140 students

Posted on


We’re the Media and Production Support Team (MaPS), and we’re here to support you on your production journey while studying COMU1140.

We have online resources that will give you the skills you need to complete your assessment. You can also contact us at [email protected] with any production questions which pop up and we can even organise a zoom session to walk you through any specific issues.

We work with the Adobe Creative Cloud suite. Attached to this email is a guide on how you can download these programs onto your personal device.

Below are resources you may find helpful for your assessment. You can download the assets to follow along here

Digital media can be a steep learning curve, but our job is to make sure it’s as smooth as possible for you! Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have.

Please note the university is closed over the Christmas/New Year period and we will respond to any queries sent during this time upon our return on January 4.

The MaPS Team.
