    Studio West 

    OMG, that website that we thought was Studio West was only the staging area! The real Studio West is up now and everybody gets their own gallery to show work in!

      Amazing! How long did it take you to hang all that art?

      The only syllogism seems to be if the classes are offerred in 135 countries, how many remaining countries are there and what prevents freedom in those countries. Is it that there are more than 135 languages in the world? Are there not enough computers and why? Are there restrictions that the U.N. should be more involved with.
      Therefore, does the U.N lack an international educational and press function or provisions. “Filmed for the U.N.” or “Filmed for the U.N. by N.B.C United States”?
      Are there schools in Space? No, not grown up ones, but everday that was spent in reducing nuclear weapons added technologies that would not have gotten past, and one day spy and or communication sattellites with return on their investment.
      Does China spend to much on its military- irrelevant question.

    Studio West- a “bespoke online artist studio” 


    The Stanford/NovoEd course Practice Based Research in the Arts entered week five and launched a new function —Studio West described in the syllabus as our bespoke online artist studio space.”  I’ve spent the weekend moving into my online studio space and I am trying to understand this new platform/format/function/site. What exactly is Studio West?  (More …)

      Yes Molly! I think you raise many insightful and important questions about the studio we’ve all been wondering about and waiting for, for the past month. I agree with all your points. The only real answer I can give is that Studio West seems very beta.

      I can’t imagine this is the final version since the functionality is so limited. If it is still in development, it may not have the better functionalities you describe before the end of the course. But if it does achieve that, it could still be a nice tool going forward.

      Limited as SW is, it’s still nice to see images of our classmates work. That such a crippled Studio West can still be better than NovoED is perhaps an observation that MOOC platforms too are very beta. I imagine platforms like NovoED were launched on tech topics like the famous Stanford Robotics course, and they haven’t really built out to embrace visual culture yet.

      For me, meeting new colleagues is even more valuable than lecture content, so I’m eager to see platforms like NovoED, Coursera and iversity have better visual offerings, indexes of students, links to student’s own websites, the option for turned in projects to “reveal creator’s identity” and the option to “reveal peer reviewer’s identity.” The option for privacy here is fine, but I’m not doing all this work to be invisible, I want to meet the classmates whose work I find compelling.

      Studio West has gone to Reverse Chron order! Now let’s really move in and take this site for a spin. I agree that the compelling part of this course, Studio West and this site is the ability to connect with colleagues and engage in critical dialogue.

        huh… I’m confused… it seems like Reverse-Chron when I’m not logged in, but then when I log in it seems to go back to Chron only…
