Congratulations to all our graduates!  It seems like just yesterday you started, and now you’re all grown up.  Please keep in touch, and best of luck!

Featured Tutorial:  Finding Print Quality Images

“Have you ever grabbed an image off the internet, then printed it, only to find it looks awful on paper or is the size of a postage stamp? The image looked great on your computer screen, so why does it print so badly? The reason is image resolution. Image resolution describes the detail an image holds. The higher the resolution, the more detail is in the image”…  Our own Professor Libby Clark has written up some nice very nice tutorials on the subject, and she explains more here at Part One, and here at Part Two.

In fact, there are so many great things on Libby’s class site–things that will be useful for anyone touching on design in their courses, but also generally useful for the OpenLab–that we recommend it as a general resource on elements of design, specific skills, and design principles.  Have a look around–to our mind it’s exactly the kind of site that has the kind of cross-discipline value that makes an open platform like ours so valuable.

Thanks for these, Libby!

Reminder:  Upcoming Workshops

There will be faculty workshops on August 16th and 22nd, covering many OpenLab aspects, from getting signed up to broader pedagogical issues of teaching with technology.  Keep an eye out here on The Open Road for more information, and as always, contact us anytime for more information.
