MODE Online Course

In this free intensive online course we introduce multimodal methods for analysing communication and learning with digital technologies. The course is organised around four areas of research/interest:

  • video analysis of face to face interaction
  • embodied cognition and interaction with tangible and mobile devices
  • text making in digital and online environments (blogs, forums and websites)
  • moving image and digital film production

We draw examples from range of different research sites, including hospitals, schools, galleries and online platforms. The technologies we explore include digital video recording devices and editing tools, Web 2.0 technologies, and mobile and tangible devices.
