Media-making resources

SYN’s media training resources include:

  • video tutorials
  • podcasts
  • downloadable fact sheets.

These resources were created by a team of SYN volunteers, trainers and media-makers, and are free and available for anyone to use.

SYN’s media training resources teach a range of skills: from planning a radio show and operating a microphone for an interview, through to using editing programs like Windows MovieMaker and iMovie to cut footage.

Keep exploring our resources section for SYN’s teacher resources, workshop podcasts from our workshops program, and external resources that you may find useful.
