European Virtual Academy Spring Term begins

Story: Heidi Mäenpää
The European Virtual Academy (EVA) Spring Term has started! The students of TAMK have a special opportunity to subscribe to these great online courses offered by Babeş-Bolyai University, Hochschule Mittweida, Sapientia Hungarian University of Transilvania, University of Milano-Bicocca and, of course, Tampere University of Applied Sciences. The site is still under development but the more people try it out, the better it will be in the future. The Spring Term began on March 1st but students can still go and subscribe to a variety of excellent courses: 

  • Contemporary Mainstream Cinema
  • Femininity and Visual Culture
  • Image Interpretation
  • Reflexivity in Film
  • Social Media in Communication and Community Building
  • Special effects
  • Storytelling in Virtual Environments

Last autumn I finished a Film and Music course and I have to say that the information I got from it has helped me immensely in my sound design projects. Using EVA is free and easy, and of course rewards students with credit points. The courses are worth 5-8 ECTS. The credits can be transferred just like credits gained during an exchange. 

EVA also has a Facebook page where you can ask your questions. I warmly recommend our students to try this service out!
