Course Description

This multidisciplinary production class serves as an introduction to, and exploration of electronic media in the arts. Lectures will cover concepts and presentations of artists working in various capacities with computers, as well as tutorials on specific software packages.

Prerequisite

No prerequisites or prior knowledge needed. Familiarity with computers is helpful but not necessary.

Course Requirements

  • Internet connection

  • Windows or Apple computer

  • Ability to install software on your machine (admin account)

  • Processing software: http://processing.org/

  • Digication e-Portfolio account (links and details will be provided) or other web-based sharing

Course Learning Outcomes

Learners who successfully complete this course will have learned the basic skills of Processing, Students will be learn to give critical feedback to their peers about technical and artistic matters through a grounding in the history of technology and the arts. A digital portfolio will showcase your work from this course.

Outcomes:

  1. Understand the basics of computers, input and output devices, memory, and disks as demonstrated through quizzes and projects

  2. Navigate file systems in Windows and Mac OS X

  3. Demonstrate creative/conceptual awareness of generative design through peer critique

  4. Install and set-up a digital environment using Processing language.

  5. Generate and manipulate type, image and sound, incorporating principles of color, shape and grids

  6. Create a multi-media Processing Sketch and host on a website

GRADING POLICY & COURSE REQUIREMENTS

Grading

Assignments and your final project are graded through a peer-review process; quizzes are multiple-choice and are graded by the computer. Your work on the assignments, projects will be graded by your peers using unique rubrics for each task.


Quizzes (5) 30%

Assignments (4) 40%

Project (1) 30 %


Quizzes

After watching each video lecture series, you will take a multiple choice quiz which will count towards your final grade. You can only take these quizzes ONCE. We are using this MOOC to flip the classroom and we do not give our students multiple chances.

There are also “in-video questions,” and you must answer these questions correctly in order to advance the video, but these questions are NOT graded, you can re-do the “in-video” quiz as many times as you need to.

Assignments

Assignments are purely technical; each module will include a detailed explanation of how to complete and grade each assignment. There will be one assignment (which may have multiple components)  every week that there is no project due.  Each assignment should take you no more than one hour.


Project

The final project is both aesthetic and technical; there will be an explanation of how to grade the project but you must remember that art is subjective. You can expect the project to take at  least 4 hours to complete.

Disclaimer: “The course schedule, policies, procedures, and assignments in this course are subject to change in the event of extenuating circumstances, by mutual agreement, and/or to ensure better student learning.”
