Course Update

Note that course still running despite Kenny McAlpine moving to a new post at University of Melbourne.

Hi there, Just wanted to let you know that Kenny McAlpine, formerly Abertay’s academic lead on sound and music for games, has moved to a new post at University of Melbourne in Australia.

We think this is still a great course despite the loss of our highly esteemed colleague and hope you enjoy the wonderful content without Kenny’s input.

In Kenny’s absence I’ll keep an eye on discussions.

Kind regards

Laurie O’Donnell
Development Director (Future Learning)
