Kingsborough Community College in New York equips future media professionals with CuttingRoom

Kingsborough Community College (KBCC), a renowned institution for future media professionals, is dedicated to providing top-notch education using the latest tools for capturing and editing broadcast/mobile journalism news as part of their Media Arts degree program. 

Leveraging the CuttingRoom Reporter app and the CuttingRoom cloud-based video editing platform, students at KBCC seamlessly capture and edit video content, enhancing their learning experience and preparing them for professional media environments.

Broadcast/Mobile Journalism over technical complexities

KBCC faced the challenge of equipping students with practical, hands-on learning experiences in journalism without overwhelming them with technical intricacies. They needed a solution that allowed students to focus on storytelling and creativity while providing robust video capture and editing tools.

Rigged for the future with cloud-native and responsive tools

The CuttingRoom Reporter app enables students to capture high-quality video content from anywhere, while the main platform offers quick and easy editing capabilities. This seamless integration allows for efficient project management and enhanced collaboration among students.

The adoption of CuttingRoom at KBCC has significantly improved students' hands-on learning experiences. According to John Acosta, Professor and Director of Media at Kingsborough Community College, 

“The integration of CuttingRoom's cloud-based editing and collaboration features has significantly improved our students' hands-on learning experiences, fostering seamless teamwork and efficient project management. The direct upload capability of the Reporter app to the CuttingRoom platform has further streamlined the workflow from capture to edit, allowing students to concentrate more on creativity and storytelling. These tools have enhanced the quality of student projects and better prepared them for professional environments, equipping them with the necessary skills to excel in the competitive media industry.”

He adds: 

"Thanks to CuttingRoom, this is the first time that students have been able to shoot/cut outside the classroom so easily". 

Kingsborough Community College's partnership with CuttingRoom streamlines its video capture and editing processes and enriches its educational programs by allowing students to focus on what matters most—storytelling and creativity.
