About

This is a blog. It’s not a work blog. It’s just a place to write, esophagitis solidify some ideas, website and clear my head. So although I say it’s not a work blog, a lot of the stuff here will have to deal with what I think about during work because my career involves the grand Venn diagram between technology, teaching, learning, and research. More broadly, about technology and culture. I’m a nerd at heart, so why wouldn’t I write about technology and culture?

If you like what I have to say, please comment. If you don’t like what I have to say, please comment. If you’re not interested in what I have to say, then I’m sure the Interwebs have more interesting blogs for you to read. If you’re trying to get people to buy prescription drugs via clever comments on this site, please fuck off! This blog is not about erectile dysfunction.

I’m Allan Gyorke. Currently the Director of Education Technology Services at Penn State.

    Hey Allan,

    What kind of Audio Services are available at Penn State? Audio recording? Mixing? Mastering?

    Just curious. I have made some great strides to offer expanded digital audio recording, editing, mixing, and mastering services at The University of Chicago under the Audio Visual Services umbrella.

      Hi Marlon. Our Media Commons group runs audio and video recording studios at close to 30 locations between University Park and the distributed campuses across the state. They spend most of their time consulting with faculty and students about making their own recordings, editing them using a variety of tools, and posting them online. Most of this work is at the \”good enough\” level that is intended for course assignments, although they will help students who are majoring in something like film, photography, or music with more professional-quality editing. For very high-production work, we would refer people to the television and radio station that is part of the university\’s Outreach unit.
