I recently discovered an app/ website called Creative Live and I can honestly say I am fascinated by it.
Creative Live offers paid or free on demand classes that focus on creative subjects in Photo & Video, Art & Design, Music & Audio, Craft & Maker and Money & Life. On the website you can search for classes or explore the on demand classes. For example as I am typing this, I am listening about ways to operate the Nikon D750 to have better photos.
The teachers on the Creative Live website have all solid experiences and are considered experts in their field. You can join Creative Live using your Google Single Sign on search for classes to purchase or listen to on air.
After reviewing the site I had so many ideas and questions come into my head.
1. How could districts use this?
Districts today are experiencing many educational cuts and often fine arts are the first to go. Could you use this site to help with individualized education and personalized learning?
2. Why are the classes on this site so expensive? What demographics are the designers trying to target? How affordable is this to parents, districts and students. Where does higher learning come into play? Is this more for adult learners then student learners? How do you utilize the on air feature to its maximum benefit?
3. What are the possibilities after utilizing this site to the full capability. While listening to on demand programming, I found myself suddenly becoming inspired to look at photography more in depth. I felt that with the help of experts I too could improve on any one of these subjects.
After having a firework display of questions and ideas, I did realize that creative live is much like a classroom. They both have experts, they both have content and they both have students.
I would love for you to check out Creative Live and leave a comment about the site or how it compares to a classroom. Happy Exploring.
