The University of Adelaide launches free online music technology course
The University of Adelaide, through its massive open online course (MOOC) division, AdelaideX, has developed a free online music technology course, Music Technology Foundations – Musonic101x.
This course is ideal for high school students looking to build their music skills with a view to a professional music career. It will also appeal to music teachers interested in learning more about music technologies who may take the course as part of their ongoing professional development.
This online course is a great way for prospective music students to learn the basics of creating music using technology from the University’s world-leading educators in electronic and new technologies.
There are no prerequisites for this course – it’s open to anyone who is interested in learning more about music technology and it will include creative practical tasks which the learners complete in freeware and browser based apps. Each week, learners in the course will complete creative practical tasks which they will share with other learners and the course instructors.
Because this six-week course is all online, it can be taken at any time and can fit in with learners’ work, study or other commitments.
The Elder Conservatorium of Music recently launched the Sia Furler Institute of Contemporary Music and Media and this course draws on the world-renowned talent and expertise of the University’s educators in both electronic and other forms of music.
The course starts on July 21. More information including registration details are on the Musonic101x link on the AdelaideX website.
