Web and Server-based Services: Arts-specific
Streaming Media Services—Video
Arts IT and departmental staff maintain multiple QuickTime streaming servers. The streaming servers provide samples of student movies; there are examples at http://film.ucsc.edu/showcase. The server also periodically hosts live streaming performances and rehearsals from the Theater Arts Department.
Streaming Media Services—Audio
In addition to video streams, the streaming servers also provide music students with required-listening music for classes. Classes including American Popular Music, Jazz, African Music, Electronic Music, Music of the Beatles, and others use this service to access course-required music in a secure and legal fashion.
Departmental web services
Arts IT staff design, serve and coordinate maintenance of the official web sites for the Division and its departments, programs and administrative units. Instructional elements include program descriptions, resources for students, course listings, and so on. A key element for arts programs anywhere, no less at UCSC, is the showcasing of student and faculty work. The departmental sites for Art, DANM, Film and Theater provide videos or still images of student and faculty projects; the Music site provides recordings of performances.
Gallery and performance web services
The Web Developer provides specialized web design services for the Sesnon Gallery, recurring music festivals, and other exhibitions and performances as needed. Maintaining a website for an art gallery, in particular, takes particular design and aesthetic skills.
Faculty professional website services
Arts IT staff provide design and space for, and coordinate maintenance of, faculty professional web sites. In addition, staff have developed tools and templates that faculty can use to create and update their own web sites, while maintaining a coordinated divisional design.
