A short course in Typography

Posted on Mar 4, 2014 by Matthew Miller Last Activity on Aug 11, 2014

A poster I developed for my graphics design classes, summarizing what I felt were the essential elements of typography I wanted easily reference-able.  If you feel there is anything I've missed that's essential, please let me know about it for consideration for inclusion in version 2. It may not be obvious from the thumbnail here, so I want to mention specifically that this is licensed CC-BY-SA, so feel free to use this in your courses, modify it, share it with others, and so on, subject only to the requirements to attribute me and share it in the same fashion (see the link if you're not sure what this means).

I am trying to figure out what order is the best way to learn everything Adobe. I have started with Photoshop, Illustrator, and In Design. Where should I go next, and what is the best way to go about it if I don't have the ability to drive to a school and take classroom classes.

Changing the Game: Assignments as Quests

Posted on Jun 21, 2011 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Sep 17, 2013

For years I've tried different strategies to excite students about learning. Though I've had some success, it's just not enough. Next year, thanks to ideas generated during my ongoing online Masters Program, I've begun brainstorming with current students, alumni, and a few educators about introducing curriculum built around a gaming model. Rather than assignments, students will embark on Quests, earning Experience Points, Leveling Up, and eventually earning creative freedom, choosing a profession, embarking on multi-player Quests, etc. (Think WoW.) Yeah, you could argue they're still just self-paced assignments but if the last nine years have taught me anything, it's that the culture of the classroom has a profound effect on student involvement and achievement. I really believe this idea has serious potential.
