Intro To Digital Media

The objective of this course is to introduce concepts of Digital Media.

Through three modules based on user experience and interaction design, the course will enable students to engage with different digital media tools and artifacts.

Learning Objectives
Students of this course will learn and reflect on three critical areas of Digital Media: Information Architecture, Interaction Gestalts, and Information Platforms. Students will also gain first hand experience with developing Digital Media prototypes and studies to build basic coding and interaction skills.

Learning Outcomes
Demonstrate proficiency in digital media, including but not limited to interaction design tools and methodology.
