Yoobee offers its first “online” NZQA approved qualification

New online qualification provides more access to digital skills.

Christchurch, 7 February 2014 - Yoobee’s first online NZQA approved qualification is now open for enrolments. The programme will start on 3 March 2014 and be delivered fully online.

The Certificate in Digital Media is a level 3 programme that provides students with a pathway to further study in Graphic Design, Web Development, Animation or Filmmaking. It is currently offered at Yoobee’s Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch campuses, and at Manurewa High School and Kelston Girls’ College.

The Certificate in Digital Media – Online is a 25-week programme and will be taught 100% online via Yoobee’s online campus.

“This programme will help us reach a wider audience both in New Zealand and internationally says Ruth Cooper CEO. “It is for students who don’t live in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch, as well as students with disabilities, caregivers and others who have commitments that make it difficult to study full-time on campus.

“We have designed the programme for an anytime, anywhere, any device world, and we are focused on ensuring the learning experience is authentic, engaging and interactive. Students have a mix of options and can choose the way that they learn best – whether that’s attending live interactive sessions with a tutor or viewing the recording later. They can collaborate in online forums, speak with the tutor directly in live sessions or contact them later for extra help and support.”

Yoobee School of Design launched is online campus on June 2013 and now is offering nine different short courses in graphic design, 3D animation and web design.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
