It's a late QBlog entry today as I was in Portsmouth being an external examiner. The hotel I was staying had no Internet connections and a car park so tight I had to climb out of my car through the passenger door — I almost had to use the hatchback door.
For the benefit of long-term QBlog readers: seaweed.
Portsmouth University's computer games degree is rich and varied. What I like most about it, though, is the names they give to their courses. At Essex, we have courses with names like EE114 and CC301. Portsmouth uses imaginative titles and derives acronyms and portmanteau labels from them. Once unit, for example, is called Sound of Music, and is abbreviated to SOMUS. Here are some more:
|Music in the 20th Century||20CENT|
|Sound Recording 2||SOUR2|
|Documentary Film and Video||DOFAV|
|3D Modelling Methods||MODME|
|Streaming Technologies for the Web||STEW|
