MOOC Course Plan

I developed a plan for a MOOC (massive open online course) on creating a typeface. This course was designed with the intent to attract anyone interested in creating their own typeface for use. The course targets beginners who may or may not have familiarity with typography and type anatomy. The course is aimed at graphic design students or professionals who are interested in the subject but may not have known where or how to get started. While the course targets those with at least some graphic design background, the course does not assume any previous knowledge so that anyone with an interest in creating a typeface could do so. As the target audience is graphic designers or graphic design students, the course materials will focus on industry standard software, but will provide links to resources for those who may not have access to the software.
