What is the project about?
Falmouth University are partnering with Detroit Institute of Music Education (DIME) to deliver a selection of purely online music degrees. DIME’s Degree courses are for musicians and entrepreneurs who wish to excel and maximize their ability within their chosen field, and to do so on their own terms.
ET will be using Canvas by Instructure, a new cloud based Learning Management System. Canvas will allow DIME students to interact with their environment in a range of multimedia, key for musicians.
Why are we undertaking it?
ET understand that online education is on the increase and further our knowledge within this field, including online environments such as Canvas, will allow us to explore new technologies and pedagogical approaches.
