Course Description

Intro to Interactive Media Design is a practical, introductory

course to the world of interactive and digital media design.

The focus will be on creating interactive experiences that

are both functional and engaging. This will be approached

from various points-of-view, including design, usability,

technique, and entertainment. We will discuss not only the

specifics of how to make something work, but strategies

concerning how to make it work well, while making it fun and

easy to understand for your audience.

This is a class for beginners and assumes no previous experience

or expertise. Students with some background in

digital design are encouraged to enroll, as many projects are

flexible. Advanced students are encouraged to explore tools

and techniques that may be beyond the scope of the course

but are right for them.


Course Objectives

Introduce students to concepts of communication

through digital multimedia.

Explore the basics of HTML 5, Cascading Style Sheets

(CSS 3), JavaScript, digital imaging, web-based typography,

digital audio, and Flash animation.

Analyze and test the usability of digital media.

Provide a forum for discussion where students can learn

from each other through critique.
