On March 22nd, 2016, The Poetry Foundation’s editors published a feature on our course“Poetry in America for Teachers: Earth, Sea, Sky.” As one commenter on the article said: “This looks great! Enrolled!”
When we began filming the core segments for our Modernism course, the production team knew that we wanted to move beyond the one-note aesthetic of previous edX Poetry in America modules. We wanted to marry our visual approach to the mold-breaking spirit of Modernist poets themselves. Because the structure of the videos themselves wasn’t something we could experiment with, we turned to production design to explore the individual tone of each week.
