Introduction to Creative Commons (self contained SLATE tutorial)

Posted on Apr 21, 2015 by Ian Upton Last Activity on Apr 23, 2015

This is a Slate tutorial based on a session I run within various courses here at the University. The session should last about 30 mins. First, students are asked to consider what 'copyright' means to them and when they can use other peoples creations in their work. Keep this high level and avoid falling into grey area discussion! Next, we show CC Kiwi - an excellent video introducing Creative Commons and how we can safely and legally use each others work. Next, we ask students to create a CC licence. I have found turning things around like this and asking students to define how others can use what you create is a powerful way of bringing insight into CC. Next we look at Incompetech. This is a really good CC resource (music and soundtracks - great for film). I show this as each 'downloadable' has the correct text accreditation alongside. Being legal is as simple as a copy and paste. In my opinion how CC sites should operate. Next we look at Flickr. I show the CC filter and the 'share' button. This is gre... Read More

Image Editing with Adobe Photoshop

Posted on Apr 19, 2015 by sofia katsikadi Last Activity on Apr 19, 2015

This is my lesson plan for Image Editing with Adobe Photoshop It's a 3hour x 10session course that includes Image Theory, Adobe Bridge, Adobe Photoshop and Camera Raw. This course is for Photographers, Image Editors, Retouchers, Graphic Designers and creative amateurs.In the actual course I include an interactive presentation with supportive images, additional study material and exercise files. We begin with the presentation and then we continue in the lab where I can show the techniques in Photoshop and then they can do the same in the lab's computers. I believe it's a very effective course and I saw in practise that the students loved it, because it may seem difficult at first but in the lab you can have deeper understanding, have really fun editing and become really creative.

10 Tips to Achieve Creativity and Innovation in Education

Posted on Apr 17, 2015 by Rafiq Elmansy Last Activity on Apr 18, 2015

Our current world is evolving more rapidly than the capacity of any existing education system. The challenge of learning is getting even harder for the next generations. We do not have a prediction of how tomorrow will look like, but we know that flexible process models are able to face the changes comparing with fixed-style models; we know that the ability to adapt helped our ancestors to survive on this planet for about six million years. This leads us to the question; what is the most important skill to teach our kids in schools? The answer:  How to build creative and innovative minds that can adapt and face future unpredictable challenges. Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page provide successful examples of how adopting innovation in education can help in building creativity and better abilities in order  to solve problems. In this article, I try to explore the different actions that can be taken during class sessions to improve creativity and innovation for both young an... Read More

Simple Stop Motion in After Effects

Posted on Apr 9, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Apr 15, 2015

This short tutorial will run you through one method of converting numerous individual images into one movie file in After Effects. It should be noted that there is also a way of doing this in Photoshop but I prefer the After Effects method. This can be a great way of utilising the 'Burst' function on the iPhone camera.

Understanding camera basics

Posted on Apr 8, 2015 by Dhanaraj Keezhara Last Activity on Apr 10, 2015

Understanding camera basics Cameras come in lots of different shapes and sizes, but they all have a few basic things in common: a lens to focus on your subject, a housing (with a handle to hold it), and a mechanism to record the image. In most cameras these days, that mechanism is likely to be an electronic sensor to record the photograph digitally.  It can be more difficult to override the automatic settings on cheaper models, which might leave you feeling that you are not completely in control of the final image.
