  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

Blended Learning Initiative

Blended Learning offerings are courses in which 30 - 50% of the content and instruction is delivered online. Such courses also meet face-to-face, as traditional courses do, yet students and faculty members are required to spend less “seat time” in the studio or classroom.  In developing such courses, Otis has responded to and engaged numerous faculty members who have expressed keen interest in online pedagogy orientation, training, and course preparation through a curricular innovation grant program.

E-Learning courses are offered in support of student success in that they afford students and faculty members more flexible schedules, students can repeat or review online portions of courses from home between in-class meetings, and students can work on those portions of courses when they are most motivated to engage them.
