The purpose of New Media is to help UFM´s professors, students and investigators to use, create and administrate digital resources that complement their academic work, adapting technologies that allow the digitalization of documents, images, audio and video; Internet interaction; and e-learning courses development.
Also, New Media facilitates an archive of UFM´s educative materials, including courses, works and high quality projects prepared by students and presentations offered by invited lecturers and professors.
