Center For Educational Media

Dr. Laura Clark, Director 


The Center for Educational Media (CEM), located in McWherter Learning Resources Center, oversees the production, distribution and broadcast of high-quality educational video programs for the College of Education (COE) and coordinates the scheduling and operation of the college's PK-12 Professional Development Center. The CEM offers computer facilities support for COE and production services for other MTSU departments and offices upon request. 

CEM has three units: 

  • Audio/Visual Services (AVS) supports faculty use of audio/visual equipment and provides engineering support for activities at CEM and COE.
  • TV/Video Production produces original videos and television programs for COE faculty, departments, and grant projects. 
  • The PK-12 Professional Development Center facilitates events and programming in CEM that support educators in PK-12 and higher education, partnering with the College of Education, MTSU, Tennessee Department of Education, school districts, professional education organizations and PK-12 training initiatives.

CEM distributes its educational programming through web posted media, streaming, and cable television.  It also collaborates with other MTSU programs, K-12 educational institutions, state agencies, and public and private organizations to produce educational media for grants, contracts, and other partnerships. CEM has an ongoing partnership with True Blue TV to air content produced in CEM.  True Blue TV, shared on local cable outlets and digital streaming services, produces and broadcasts original programming and selected MTSU events, as well as broadcasting other educational programming that is licensed and/or provided by educational media vendors from across the United States.
