Welcome to the Haskins Website / Multimedia news-page. Here you will find current information on website development and multimedia at the Laboratories. Contact Yvonne Manning-Jones for additional information.
We have some exciting additions to our software library, most notably Autodesk Maya and Final Cut Pro.
We are exploring a number of CMS (Content Management Systems) to allow staff to edit their own pages. If you have suggestions, please send them along.
As Haskins is mainly an Apple computing environment as well as having many power users of Adobe software, we are impacted by the ongoing dispute between Apple and Adobe and are developing more web pages / apps using HTML5 rather than Flash.
Also, Adobe has severely tightened their rules regarding purchases using educational discount status. It is advised that you throughly read the rules and talk to Adobe sales prior to ordering software that you may be unable to register or return.
Ongoing work includes revamping our design and fine-tuning the look and feel of the site.
Yale University has an enterprise licensing agreement allowing faculty, staff, and students to use Microsoft Office for Mac and PC.
