Clayton State University’s Loch Shop, and the University’s Disability Resource Center, will be featured in a new video being filmed on Monday, Oct. 10, on-site on the Clayton State campus.
CourseSmart, a publishing partner of The Loch Shop, will be shooting a video documentary of its new STEPP (STudent E-rent Pilot Project) program, which offers universally accessible electronic textbooks and gives students with print-related disabilities the chance to participate in a mainstream textbook rental program. The video will demonstrate how CourseSmart titles are sold in The Loch Shop. The film will ultimately be distributed nationally to disability service offices and college bookstores.
The filming will be done between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. by Georgia Tech’s Alternative Media Access Center, a partner in the U.S. Department of Education Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education grant that provides for accessible textbooks through CourseSmart.
Also in the video will be Clayton State’s Disability Resource Center, like The Loch Shop, located in the Clayton State Student Center. It is anticipated that students and employees may be featured in the video, including Loch Shop Manager Todd Smith and Disability Resource Center staff, as well as one or two students who use the Disability Resource Center.
“It certainly sounds like a wonderful program that has the potential to help many students, and we are pleased that we have been asked to take part,” says Smith.
