Software and Technology

The Media and Gaming Lab of the Library serves the media needs of Lindenwood University, with the goal of assisting in the creation of audio or visual materials by faculty, staff, and students; supporting University courses and curriculum via media, software and technology; and providing for the needs of campus organizations that support the enrichment of campus culture.


The Media and Gaming Lab is open to all of our campus community and does its best to appeal to everyone on campus. In the spirit of that mission, we have included software that is more general in nature or specific to a discipline not associated with the purpose of Media or Gaming. Below is a listing of some of that software.

*The following lists are an overview of both PC and MAC. Availability and licensing of available software are subject to change. For online learning, we recommend Lindenwood University's Virtual Computer Labs (Apporto)
