Online Learning Projects at the UC Berkeley Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT)
This talk will present a number of very recent developments in the use of web-based learning tools at CNMAT. Focusing on a Music Perception and Cognition course created by UC Berkeley professor David Wessel, we'll examine some of the challenges and rewards of developing an online learning experience that is both rigorous and effective.
