As we come to the end of the second year of Arts One Open (né Digital), we’re pleased to note that the videos on our YouTube channel have now attracted over 25,000 views; to be precise, as of today they have been seen exactly 26,410 times.
Moreover, we are now getting over 1,000 views per week. And even though the academic year is almost over at UBC, we expect to continue to attract similar, if not increasing, numbers over the summer and beyond. Through Arts One Open, Arts One has a life that goes well beyond the local university community.
It’s exciting to see the reach of this experimental program, which (unlike its investments in Coursera and other forms of so-called “flexible learning”) has cost the university essentially nothing, and has the virtue of being truly open and innovative. We look forward to continuing with Arts One Open next year. Look forward to further refinements and announcements over the summer.
Oh, and in the meantime, now you can like us on Facebook!
