Michael Collins joined the Penn State School of Visual Arts in 2012, initially teaching 3D animation and digital design. He is an advocate for open-source technology and is working towards making free access to knowledge easier with his latest collaboration on the OER Schema Project – in his words, “the project is a not-at-all boring implementation of pedagogical metadata making online learning content easily remixable.” He has designed a few things including furniture, websites, interfaces, drawings, animations, and online design curriculum for the Digital Multimedia Design program. His most recent exhibition work centers around digital privacy, identity, and security.
