5 Rules for being human in a MOOC
If you haven't just clicked on the Prezi above then you may want to read this explanation. The idea and text for the assignment is based on this blog, if you want to you can read past posts, but it isn't essential.
The images were created with Fresh Paint using a touch screen, in other words finger painting with computers. Why, well it was fun, it created images that were copyright free and that were relevant to the topic in hand. If you like the images see also the Flikr stream for this project here.
Composing the project
The project uses multimedia. Sound, spoken word and music of a sort, text and images. All were generated using a computer in the spirit of EDC MOOC. Its important to understand that the piece is not anti technology, machines could meet some or all of these criteria, it is about preserving human qualities in interacting through the MOOC. The voices are different because I wanted to reflect the randomness of the sound quality of computer speech. I think I achieved the same effect by just choosing different personalties from the computer programme.
Composed by me, rudimentary but of course computer generated and copyright free.
