Why First World War soldiers wore khaki

Description

Khaki uniform may not be regarded a design classic but it has, in many ways, shaped our memory of the First World War. Perhaps design historians overlook khaki because it is, by definition, inconspicuous. Invented to disguise and conceal soldiers … Continue reading →

Roaring Twenties? Europe in the interwar period Roaring Twenties? Europe in the interwar period

Description

While recognising the shadows cast by two world wars (one concluded and one imminent) over European society during the 1920s and 1930s, this free course, Roaring Twenties? Europe in the interwar period, demonstrates how a number of specific features indicate that the interwar period was a distinctive and important moment of modernity in the twentieth century, from the rise of the metropolis and the emergence of new forms of mass media, to the changing lifestyles of women and the increasingly interventionist approaches to managing the health and welfare of modern populations.

Colour language and mental modes

Description

A learning object designed for Level 4 students of General art and design. It illustrates some of the key concepts surrounding modern colour systems and theories and explores how systems and models of colour have been developed in response to advances in technology and the demands of industry. It shows how these colour systems have attempted to explain how colours are organised, how they can be reproduced, and how they can be mixed to form new colours. It also explores how the social sciences of anthropology and psychology emerging in the twentieth century introduced new colour systems and explored colour in entirely different ways. The content of the objects has been designed to apply equally to the English (Level 3) and Scottish (Highers) General art and design curricula.

Library of Alexandria Library of Alexandria

Description

One of the most important questions for any student of the ancient world to address is 'how do we know what we know about antiquity?' Whether we're thinking about urban architecture, or love poetry, or modern drama, a wide range of factors shape the picture of antiquity that we have today. This free course, Library of Alexandria, encourages you to reflect upon and critically assess those factors. Interpreting an ancient text, or a piece of material culture, or understanding an historical event, is never a straightforward process of 'discovery', but is always affected by things such as translation choices, the preservation (or loss) of an archaeological record, or the agendas of scholars.

It shows how colour depth, resolution and format all affect the image and allows the user to change attributes and view results. It also covers the concepts of image size in relation to resolution and the effects of image manipulation. The learning objects may be used as part of a group classroom activity, or as part of the individual study programme of the learner. The content of the objects has been designed to apply equally to the English (Level 3) and Scottish (Highers) General art and design curricula.

Colour on computers

Description

This learning object illustrates some of the key concepts surrounding modern colour systems and theories. It explores how systems and models of colour have been developed in response to advances in technology and the demands of industry. It explains how these colour systems are organised, how they enable colours to be reproduced, and how colours can be mixed to form new colours. It also examines how in the twentieth century the social sciences of anthropology and psychology introduced new colour systems and explored colour in entirely different ways. Designed for Level 4 students of general art and design, the content of the objects has been designed to apply equally to the English (Level 3) and Scottish (Highers) general art and design curricula.

Making sense of art history Making sense of art history

Description

You can prepare for this free course, Making sense of art history, by looking around you. It's likely that wherever you are you'll be able to see some images. It's also likely that many of these will be intended to have some sort of effect on you. In the course itself you will be exploring the power of images via a study of contemporary art from the 1980s onwards. Taking the time to look beyond the immediate appearance of an art work to consider what the artist might be trying to say can be immensely rewarding.
