Over on the Full Sail University Online Faculty Blogs, course directors and lab specialists share articles with their students that we think everyone would enjoy, so we’re picking a few of our favorites every month and linking to them right here. Check out our May picks below:
- The Week Two assignment in Associate Course Director Lauren Branzei’s Art History class involves students exploring a museum virtually or in person, and as a suggestion, she offered up a link to the Google Art Project. The project is a virtual, behind-the-scenes collaboration between Google and 151 museums, and it’s an online art experience well worth spending a few minutes exploring.
- Game Development Lab Specialist Rob Muscarella shared a list of four games that will make you a better programmer, perfect for students new to the program.
- The Avengers broke box office records in May and Full Sail proudly had 57 grads working on the film. Pete Bandstra, the Computer Animation department’s Director of 3D Arts, shared a great feature from the Society of Digital Artists with behind-the scenes footage of the film.
- Education Media Design & Technology Course Director Emily Wray shared an interesting article about a Queen’s University researcher attempting to revolutionize video-conferencing by creating a human scale 3D Pod. Emily’s take: think of it like “Skype with holograms.”
- If you’ve ever wanted some tips on how to convince somebody to do something for you, you’ll appreciate this Los Angeles Times article on The Power of Persuasion, shared by Psychology of Human Interaction Course Director Wendy Lake.
