Get to know DigiComm

Digital Communication Consulting (DigiComm) launched in 2014.  Our small team of dedicated tutors serve students across the university to enhance their digital production and online presence.  Our program is a part of the JMU Learning Centers.  You can find us in room 1155 of the Student Success Center. 

DigiComm's History

Paige Normand trained the first cohort of media tutors in the spring semester of 2014 during a semester-long 3-credit course, cross-listed among the School of Media Arts and Design (SMAD), Writing, Rhetoric, and Technical Communication (WRTC), and Communication Studies (SCOM).  DigiComm officially began consulting in fall 2014 by embedding Media Fellows in eight classes across campus. In spring 2015 we began offering consultations to any JMU student interested in working with a tutor to create a professional portfolio or discuss a digital assignment.

We hope to expand the number of students we serve as more JMU faculty integrate complex digital assignments into their curriculum. If you have any suggestions for DigiComm, don't hesitate to contact Paige Normand
