The Digital Learning Lab (DLL) workshop programme is now available online for all LCF students through Moodle.
The Digital Learning Labs at Mare Street, John Princes Street and Lime Grove are frontier focused digital spaces with an ambitious vision to explore futures of digital for fashion. Working across academic, industry and student led agendas within the University, the Digital Learning Lab provides an experimental environment to explore emerging futures of digital experience.
The programme has been adjusted to refocus on technologies that are accessible and suitable for students to work from home. The aim is also for these technologies to facilitate digital showcasing from 3D scanning using a phone and augmented reality as a delivery platform to online remote performances.
The programme consists of open access workshops followed by bookable 1:1 tutorial sessions, offering support for various fields of technology.
Examples of ongoing workshops, with more to come in the following weeks:
- Photogrammetry - 3D Scanning
- Blender 101 - Lighting
- Interactive Development in Unity3D
- Augmented Reality Basic and Intermediate
- Physical and Wearable Technology introduction and Q&A
- Interactive Design for Performances
- Introduction to Computer Vision and AI
Students can book directly through Moodle at lcfdll.com.
Forbes Senior Contributor, Brooke Roberts-Islam recently spoke to LCF's Mouhannad Al-Sayegh, a Creative Technologist based in the DLL, on the ways fashion education is adapting to the coronavirus pandemic and how students are utilising new technologies. Mouhannad reports on being contacted by designer/maker students and alumni who, due to the lockdown, “have started picking up and learning Clo3D, Rhino, and other 3D digital tools as they find themselves with more time.”
