MOOCs are redefining education. On September 1st, I signed up for Computational Arts on Coursera because I feel that the course as a whole satisfies where I am at this point in my life. I am no longer content to be just a programmer. I want to explore the depths of my creativity.
It is a mix of programming, digital art and electronic music. Presently we are in the programming module. My first assignment is to create a sketch containing 20 unique objects. This sketch took me 3 hours to complete yesterday. Being a programmer, I know the first part of the course will be a breeze. Its the other parts that have me worried.
