What is it about?

Could ‘Netflix and chill’ be turned into a creative learning activity for design students? As theoretical online learning is often associated with unilateral conference calls with no participation from students, we propose an experiment where joining an activity related to relaxation or even procrastination is the basis for a group assignment for design students.

Why is it important?

This research provides the results of an experiment carried out completely online during the pandemic, with students used to studio classes, direct interaction, and a hands-on approach.


I hope researchers will enjoy this work, as it provides a different take on online classes during the pandemic, an honest approach to the expectations of design students. I hope readers will find this article thought-provoking and that educators will continue the conversation with their students on how to make theoretical content more appealing to them, especially when those classes are online.
