Integrated Digital Media Institute, NYU Poly
The Betaville project started out as a crossover software art/collaborative design environment concept, a collaboration between the Brooklyn Experimental Media Center and the Media2Culture Institute for Applied Media Research at the Hochschule Bremen. Since then, it has evolved into a flexible open-source toolkit/environment for not only those applications, but for a range of use including 3D GIS work, and other creative, research, and educational uses. Prof. Skelton presented some of the deployments already in progress, and discussed the potential for further development.
The Center for Teaching Excellence supports and nurtures effective teaching and learning at NYU. The Center promotes an ongoing, university-wide discussion about teaching and learning matters, striving both to facilitate and contribute to that conversation, and provides practical resources to members of the NYU community to enhance their effectiveness in the classroom and laboratory.
