Below is a growing list of OER resources, Useful links and digital desktop / mobile art making platforms. Desktop and mobile platforms will be regularly introduced and discussed here. What role do you play? If you have arrived here, you have a choice to make, contribute, observe, re-share, learn and assimilate. Collaborations will take place and artistic / creative interventions will expand. We need you! This page will grow over time as students, faculty and community members contribute.
