Conceived as a multi-part project, the CL Coloring Book offers the opportunity for participants to create all sorts of outline designs as pages which can be colored by others. During the project cycle, individual pages can be shared back and forth with others in CLMOOC (version 2017) and beyond. Along the way, we hope a bunch of design tools will be explored and explained to everybody. For example, Algot Runeman, that’s me, will use Inkscape as the design tool. Others may design with just a pencil on paper. Still others might know about a cool online tool. By exploring and explaining the tools as we go, it gives everybody a chance to collectively build together.

With a project soft goal date of Labor Day September 4th, traditional ending the summer in the United States, the collection of designs will be compiled into a coloring book which CLMOOC can use as one example of what can happen through collaborative learning. Finally, the booklet can go out to all educators who might want to use it as a starter for their own in-class design project.

The coloring book will be distributed openly, offered for no charge to anyone. In order to make the book as useful as possible, all submissions to the project will be licensed using the current Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY 4.0) asking only that the original creator be attributed when their work gets reproduced anywhere worldwide.

  1. Another Photo-to-Sketch App
       submitted by Stephanie Loomis

    Pixlr https://pixlr.com/ is a mobile app that I use for most of my photo remixes. They also have a desktop app, but the mobile app is actually better. This make is straightforward: 1. Take photo with phone camera 2. Open in Pixlr 3. In "adjustments" (far left icon on bottom panel), push contrast all the way to the right and saturation all the way to the left. At each step click the check mark to apply the filter. 4. In "effect" (third icon on bottom panel), select "hagrid" and apply 5. Go to "stylize" and select "sketch" 6. Save 🙂… Read more »
