This lecture-based course will provide you with hands-on experience using a variety of digital communications technologies. Topics covered include Web design, image editing, 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, and Illustrator for in-class demonstrations and assignments. While not the only tools of their kind, they are a good place to start. These applications are available through Adobe Creative Cloud.

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, let me know and I’ll be happy to work with you.
