The DigiSpace is computer lab where students can drop in and work on digital projects. DigiSpace is part of SASC (Student Academic Success Center) and is staffed by Digital Literacy Consultants, undergraduates who are familiar with the WordPress software running UNEPortfolios, in addition to a range of other digital tools you might want or need to use to complete a project – either for a class or out of personal interest.

Some students go to the DigiSpace because their professors assign projects that must be done in the space.Other students go to the DigiSpace because they’re seeking some help, access to some software they don’t have on their own computers, or a place where they can work on a digital project with others.

Students can also bring their own laptops to the DigiSpace, use the available Macs, work on a MacBook Pro. This layout enables a wiki-style approach to project work of the sort that Ward Cunningham (inventor of the wiki, as in Wikipedia) describes below:
