Ohio State’s Mobile Design Lab Puts Digital Skills on the Move

Description

The Ohio State University’s Digital Flagship initiative is hitting the road. A shiny, black recreational vehicle was parked in front of the Recreation and Physical Activity Center on a recent Wednesday afternoon. The RV packs enough horsepower to crisscross the Buckeye state in comfort. But it’s intellectual muscle that really powers the new Mobile Design Lab. “It’s a 34-foot bus that we’ll be able to take to all of our campuses and do outreach across the state around design thinking, mobile app development, coding, and how to use technology in teaching and learning as a student, as a professor or staff,” said Director of Learning Programs & Digital Flagship Cory Tressler. “So it’s really a physical, mobile design space for us, but also an outreach vehicle to educate everybody in our community.”
