Media Education & Training

BNN’s education programs challenge you to explore, experience, and create

BNN offers small class sizes, committed educators, state-of-the-art equipment and a newly outfitted facility. For a nominal fee, Boston residents and organizations that serve Boston can take workshops from our roster of classes.

Whether you are older or younger, you can learn to create media projects from your beginning idea to the edited product. Or, you can hone your skills with tutorials and short workshops. BNN offers workshops in all aspects of pre-production, production, post-production for both field and studio productions as well as media literacy classes. In BNN’s Timothy Smith Network Media Lab, equipped with the latest computers and software programs, you can learn to edit video programs, compose a soundtrack and create a DVD. We also offer workshops and seminars to help you understand social media technologies, including new tools and apps. 

BNN's goal is to provide you with the training you need to communicate using media technology. We provide a Producer Media Tool Kit to help you through the production process. Members create programs for cablecast on our cable channels and streamed live on our website, as well as multimedia projects for distribution on the web. We also provide special media training and production programs for youth.
