About Iowa Digital Engagement and Learning (IDEAL)

IDEAL provides a variety of resources for students working on digital projects such as videos, podcasts, infographics, animations, and even PowerPoints. 

  • The IDEAL Media Studio has Mac and PC computers with a wide range of editing software available for students to use when creating, editing or reviewing digital projects.
  • One-on-one assistance is available with our undergraduate Media Tutors at the IDEAL Media Studio. Students can schedule one-on-one appoints with a Media Tutor by emailing, but are also welcome to stop by the studio as needed without an appointment. We also offer "walk-in" virtual tutoring via Zoom! Visit our website to learn more and access the Zoom link.
  • A variety of media equipment is available for students working on digital projects including recorders, cameras, microphones and more. Visit to reserve equipment or drop by the IDEAL Media Studio in 108 EPB.

What to Expect:

Walk-in tutoring is available for students. IDEAL provides guidance and support on the use of digital equipment, as well as for planning, production, and post-production work. Consultants can help with anything from making a better PowerPoint to editing a video to creating a website—if it involves composing with digital media, then IDEAL can help.
