Welcome to our Course! MMA100 – Fall Semester 2020

Welcome to our Course! MMA100 – Foundations of Digital Graphic Design!

Dear Students MMA100:


Im really excited to meet everyone and share this first class to connect and for us all to learn a bit about each other. There is a lot of exciting and compelling content to cover, which will happen in real time beginning on this Wednesday 8/26 at 5:30pm via Zoom. (the link is below)

Please come and turn your camera ON if possible for the class. I am Deaf and very dependent on all things visual. I read lips, and speech read from facial expressions. I use my voice for speaking and I have closed captions enabled for our class so that I can follow along in real time as everyone speaks. (you can turn off the captions if you wish from your end) I would greatly appreciate it if you would keep your cameras on. If it is not possible, I understand, but please be patient with me. Thank You!

Please Join the Zoom Meeting on Wednesday 8/26 at 5:30pm

The link above is super important as that is where all of the course content will be published. Im not a fan of using blackboard so only the minimum info will be placed there. I will go over this in full on Wednesday at 5:30pm.

The Class Structure – MMA100 will be taught both synchronously and asynchronously and you will decide what method works best for you. I am here to help you be the best that you can be in our course. And we are all here to do the same for each other. The nature of our course is already used to the many applications and digital tools that you will see here. A big part of our class is being experimental with design and its relationship with the Internet. We will cover the many tools that are available to us. We do quite a bit of the fun and creative work from our own personal work spaces as we integrate the class work into our lives. Please know, I will screen record each and every “how-to” and “tutorial” for all assignments and share those videos on our class website.

Don’t worry, I will NOT be recording anyones face(s) just my own screen for the lessons. Please think of the class website as a repository of information and inspiration for the course, and beyond!

The Class Website – Our class website takes place on the BMCC OpenLab! You will soon discover that the OpenLab is a huge resource and regular source of inspiration! I promise.
