Learn how to create your own artistic images and animations and display them in our online gallery, which has now been enhanced to suit self-paced learners.
Our world is becoming increasingly digitized. For many of us, barely a day goes past without recording a video, taking and editing photos, and sharing digital content across multiple applications. But how well do we understand the technology we're using, and how is digital information created and manipulated?
With many careers today involving some form of computation, there is a growing urgency for individuals to move beyond digital literacy, to understand how digital technologies work, and to develop literacy in code. This course will help you acquire it.
In this course, you will not only learn the inner workings of your digital world, but also create and manipulate images with code, creating new artworks and interactive animations. Your images and animations will be displayed in an online Art Gallery, forming part of a vibrant learning community.
You will also develop effective computational thinking skills and concepts transferable to other coding environments and programming languages.

How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.

Great course. Shorter than I expected though. Basis for creating art in Processing.js, although some things weren't covered (like text and importing image for instance). However, it was free, good community, lots of exercises, so I cannot really complain. Better than many MOOC's I have taken.
