I recently defended my degree in «Interactive Media Designer». The course was the very first «pilot». And now there are already many streams behind us. August 2020, at first, with great caution, I checked, signed up and took an installment plan for training. For me personally, the composition of the teachers was a guarantee, that I knew from the Circle of Light Festival 2017. Specifically they are «Lunapark.space» and «Dreamlaser». They lead two modules on the course.
Bottom line. I didn’t regret it one bit. Neither time nor money. The training is completely immersive and exciting, like a journey to other universes) Much is given, much demands. I barely had time to do my homework, combining it with my work. A couple of times I had thoughts of switching to the streams behind us. But it wasn’t all that bad, mentors, coordinator, and lab technician go along with it. The main thing is to do a little bit, but every day.)) Regularly approach the «learning tool.»)
Couple a few words about the training itself. All the modules are very rich and well structured, a lot of examples from history, a lot of practice, my own laboratory. The confusing thing was, that the modules are taught by some educators, while the mentors who answer questions on that module are others. It was not always possible to get through to those who directly leads the module. A little bit of feedback suffers. There weren’t many webinars for this. Probably more now, we were the first) System testers).
Already in the second month, I began to realize that this profession is much broader and more interesting than I had imagined. And in some places.
