Six Lessons in Storytelling

Icon objectives.jpg
The six lessons, to be taken as one course, are primarily meant for students of computer animation. The course attempts to build skills in storytelling by asking students to do a series of exercises and assignments by using free contents available on the web. While self assessment after the completion of six lessons is possible, periodical assessment by the classroom instructor after the completion of each lesson would provide the students with the ideal situation for honing their skills in storytelling. It is also advised that the students take this course together as a class and periodically exchange notes with other students.
