This lecture-based course will provide you with hands-on experience using a variety of digital communications technologies. Topics covered include image editing, page layout, Web design, animation, and a variety of multimedia tools. Principles of design, media theory, and history will also be addressed in class discussion.
In addition to coding with HTML and CSS, we’ll be using software applications including Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, and Flash for in-class demonstrations and assignments. While not the only tools of their kind, they are a good place to start. These applications are bundled together in Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium.
Introduction to Web Design and Computer Principles moves through a lot of material over the course of one semester. Any time you have a question or concern about the class or its content, please let me know and I'll be happy to work with you.
