@postasis proposal is placed at the state-of-the-art of contemporary education. It proposes a structure that complements the field referred to as MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses), mainly in areas where real-time multi-user experimentation and exercising are required in conjunction with collaborative project and actions development. In our case, the initiative targets mainly digital art, and complementary fields such as computational design, collaborative technological experimentation in the physical and virtual space etc. However, our proposal could also be applicable to other disciplines such as architecture, physics, chemistry, medicine, as well as in interdisciplinary research.
The initiative for the @postasis proposal comes from Athens School of Fine Arts. It is a result of theoretical works of Prof. Manthos Santorineos, in conjunction with technological research and educational experimentations in collaboration with Dr. Stavroula Zoi (Athens School of Fine Arts instructor), and Dr. Nefeli Dimitriadi as a representative of Paris-8 (PhD student at the time that the idea emerged), in the scope of the Multimedia-Hypermedia Laboratory and the Greek-French Master “Art, virtual reality and multiuser systems of artistic expression” between Athens School of Fine Arts and Paris-8 University.
An important role to the development of the idea was played by the close collaboration with the Department ATI of Paris-8 University which constituted the main debater for the forming of the @postasis proposal.
