Electronic Workshop of Creative Technology
The electronic workshop is a platform for working and teaching.
The inspiration behind the electronic workshop is the classical renaissance workshop, where teachers and students worked aside, each with his own work piece, sometimes getting intuition by looking and discussing what others are doing, sometimes getting questions from students or advice from the teacher.
The electronic workshop builds on these forms of working, but using the possibilities of nowadays environment. It is a wiki based medium that allows for documentation and cooperation within an environment closed from the outside. Students can find here the set-up and material of the course, they can put here their own course work and portfolios. They have means to collaborate on some of the course work, see other students' work and can ask questions and receive comments. Teachers put there they material, they can see the student's work, give comments, answer questions.
The concept and and settings for this electronic workshop were developed at the Radboud University Nijmegen, especially by dr. Hanno Wupper and his students. Marc Berenschot performed the installation at the UT. Freek Verbeek from the Radboud University Nijmegen imported the relevant settings, and is helping with the set up. To make the workshop a vital and creative space the contributions of students and teachers of Creative Technology are necessary.
