Do you want to know how #mapping is done? How to work with #arduino? Or what the #internet IoT is? On the One Year Course in Digital Arts and Experience Design you will get to learn how video, sound, image and spaces design combine to achieve a wider, more diverse result with the ability of transforming the role of spectator from a passive receiver into an active participant. During the academic year, the student will respond to the new order of R+D in the cultural and technology sectors, placing the student between audio-visual method and artistic creativity, the engines of the new technologies, innovation and entrepreneurship.
The design and audiovisual production markets are inundated with terms like #interaction, #mapping, #wearables, #internet_of_things, #bending, #UX, #AR, #VR, etc. The emergence of the Internet, the boom of social networks and the development of new digital tools have opened a world of possibilities for audiovisual designers/artists that only a few years ago was unimaginable.
New creators repurpose their studios to become laboratories in which they merge traditional knowledge with new and varied types of content. Additionally, they use new tools for research, development and prototyping. Video, sound, image and design spaces combine to achieve a wider, more diverse result with the ability of transforming the role of spectator from a passive receiver into an active participant.
In a time of change like this, it is absolutely essential to provide students not only with knowledge and skills but also with resources for gathering information on the new communities and knowing how to position their products and services on the internet and how best to bring them to their clients' attention. It is also crucial to understand the economic and business implications involving the commercial development of an experience.
The One Year Digital Arts and Design Experience Course, directed by Kike Ramirez, has been created with the aim of providing an educational response to the changes mentioned above and establishing a community of pioneers and innovators in the field of design, art and technology. Over one academic year, through an intensive online/classroom format, students will respond to the new order of R+D in the cultural and technological sectors, placing the student between audio-visual technical and artistic creativity, the engines of the new technologies, innovation and entrepreneurship.
The One Year Course in Digital Arts and Experience Design consists of 60 IED credits* structured as follows:
- An attendance-based module (320 hours or 40 IED credits*) whose purpose is to develop at our facilities, with outstanding professionals, the keys to the educational program combining study, research and production projects.
- A distance-learning module (20 IED credits*), which can be accessed through the IED Madrid Campus e-learning platform, including the carrying out of courses that complement the attendance-based module and preparation of the final project.
