The DME operates as a technology lending library, where students can borrow new and interesting technologies to experiment with and incorporate into their own projects.
Along with having access to a variety of bookable technologies, peer tutoring and support, and a wide range of hardware and software, students can attend hands-on workshops, guest lectures, and tutorials to enhance their digital educational experience.
This collaborative, creative, and technology-rich lab is open to Ryerson students and faculty from all disciplines. Drop by any time between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday to Friday.
