Science Communication
Visualizing and communicating complex knowledge is “daily business” not only to journalists and PR-experts, but also to didacts and pedagogues. By participating in the workshop “Science Communication”, they have the opportunity to learn about the method of “Social Network Analysis”. On the basis of concrete examples, the lecturers will provide participants with a “tool box” for analysis and visualizations.

DMA - Digital Media for Artists
The aim of the project is to collect and share the widespread knowledge of many people, especially lecturers ad students, and to develop a web-based system with whose assistance users can pick up in a spatially and temporally flexible and need-oriented way the necessary technical and formative skills within the range of the digital media. The users can become acquainted with the technical and design aspects that are to be considered for a digital media production. The content is structured into modules, which cover theoretical background knowledge, technical-practical guidances, design principles. The network of these independent modules obtain the bases from the ranges 2D-graphics, desktop publishing, digital video and audio, 3D-graphics and animation, multimedia and web design. The crucial point is that every lecturer, student or interested user can produce and upload modules, which are supervised by an editorial board.
The project is initiated and implemented by the University of Art and Industrial Design Linz in cooperation with FH Hagenberg „Engeneering of Computer-based Learning” and is granted by the Federal Ministry for Education, Science and Culture. Duration: Oct. 2002 – Oct. 2004.
