As a design prototyping middleware, OOCSI is extremely useful in teaching design. Why? Because it is mature connectivity technology that is easy to setup and use. It comes with a full suite of client libraries – and it is fast.
Over the years, we have developed a course series that teaches OOCSI basics, intermediate and advanced topics. We have used this for years in higher education (at the Industrial Design department of TU/e), and we are happy to share this with you.
Our learning resources are available as video lectures filmed for hte TU/e ID Bachelor elective “technologies for Connectivity”. The contents are not course-specific, so feel free to dive in.
We have run plenty of workshops with OOCSI over the years. Unless we needed to cover more in-depth topics, workshops can be done in 1-2 hours. At the end, participants have a fully working system that they can experiment with further. [more]
You would like to teach OOCSI or run a learning activity with OOCSI? Yes! 🤗
There are multiple ways to do that:
- offer an introduction into OOCSI and make use of the video lectures
- assign a hands-on design case to be done with OOCSI, then let the students or participants go their own ways
- pre-build your own course examples or infrastructure that makes use of OOCSI
