meet your educator: Professor Glenn WilcoxI am Professor of Architecture at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. I have been teaching and working with computers in design since the early 1990’s.
about the course:
.course effortWeeks 1 and 2 of the course focus heavily on the basics of python and rhinoscript. These weeks are slightly longer to cement foundational knowledge. Weeks 4 and 5 emphasize design principles and application and so have fewer steps in order to encourage more time on the assignments.
.how to watch the videosThe course is designed so that learners are always applying their knowledge while learning instead of passively viewing. The videos are longer than typical FutureLearn courses as they are intended to serve as a guide for moving through different concepts. All of the code used in the videos is available on the same step under the title tutorial code. Learners are highly encouraged to follow along with the videos and use the Knowledge Checks which are on the same step to make sure they understand the content.
.assignmentsThere are 2 forms of assessment in this course. The first are tests which allow learners to test their knowledge from the demo videos and lessons. The second are larger design assignments. These assignments are meant to help you apply the programming concepts in a design context. These assignments are not formally graded but instead rely on a guided self-assessment and feedback from the larger course community. More on how this feedback process works can be found in the design critique section.
