Digital Tutorials Advisory Group: Video Tutorial Immersion Program

VTIP Summer 2023

The application period for summer 2023 has closed.

About the Program

The Video Tutorial Immersion Program is an eight-part immersion series featuring in-person, asynchronous, and online components. The application process ensures that attendees are invested in the program. Applications will not require previous experience with video editing, but they will require that participants have a video idea or concept. All participants who complete the program will have a finished video tutorial, as well as the knowledge and skills to produce more in the future!
