No coursera tinha já feito dois, o «Fantasy and Science Fiction: The Human Mind, Our Modern World por Eric Rabkin (University of Michigan)» e o «Introduction to Art: Concepts & Techniques por Anna Divinsky (PenneState)».
Gostei dos dois, mas o segundo com uma componente prática intensa teve outro encanto. Agora, encontrei a Iversity e fiquei logo encantada com dois cursos de lá.
Design 101 (or Design Basics)
Design your own world. Are you ready? Design 101 is a journey into contemporary design in which you will transform yourself and your everyday life into 101 projects. For three months, you will develop basic design attitudes that will allow you to thrive in today’s world, while restoring your understanding of its mechanics. We live in a global community where the physical bits are slowly (and not so slowly) overlapped by social media. Design has become #design. Indeed, the use of new technologies has changed the teaching and, by the same token, the nature of the past; the past is being renewed. Herein lies the conceptual hinge of Design 101: a new way to learn a new design.
The Future Of Storytelling
Together with a whole network of media researchers, creators and students we will: - learn storytelling basics such as antagonist/protagonist relationships, narrative/narrated time, ...
- have a look at exciting current media projects
- analyze how they are designed and executed based on aforementioned basics
- and discuss how (and if) new online tools and formats change the way stories are told and perceived.
Claro já em inscrevi nos dois. Costumam ser muito trabalhosos, mas aprende-se e conhece-se metodos e pessoas novas. Estou ansiosa.
