Certificate in Storytelling for the Metaverse

What is this course about?


This course will introduce you to new technologies and ways of telling stories. Using a variety of technologies such as motion-capture, AR and VR you will have an opportunity to experiment and learn about the possibilities for creating different kinds of narrative.

You can be a complete novice or already have some experience with these technologies; all you need is an interest in experimenting and learning. You might, for example, be a designer, a filmmaker, or an artist who is interested in expanding your creative practice to include different ways of interacting with the world in narrative or non-narrative forms. Or, you could be a beginner with an enthusiasm to learn and explore.

  • Learn how to identify and devise an appropriate strategy, and a work schedule for bringing your project to a realisation stage using digital media techniques.

How will I be assessed?


You will create a self-directed project in an area of digital audio-visual practice.

You will be assessed on your project management, research and skills related to your own project. There are no written exams in this course.
