Projects: Interactive Design

Spring 2019

Taught By: David Marcinkowski

Section: A

CRN: 2015

Credits: 3

This course focuses on the production process in the interactive design industry. Students create a project of their own design and take it from the early planning stages through the production process to a completed interactive web site, mobile app or kiosk installation. The class emphasizes the design and production process for building of professional skills needed to complete an interactive media project. While students develop their individual projects, they will explore the artistic and professional practices of interactive design and how they can be used in the areas of web technologies, interactive video, mobile app design, information kiosks, art installations and immersive environments. The class introduces core technologies associated with the interactive production pipeline, including information architecture and interface design, the dynamic and semantic web, and video and audio integration. Students learn the basic syntax and application of a variety of advanced technologies such as JavaScript frameworks, content management systems, and interactive 360 video. Although these more advanced skills will only be introduced, students are encouraged to explore them further in their individual projects. The goal will be to create a complete project targeting a certain platform (smart phone, tablet, or computer screen), while preparing the project to be able to expand to multiple environments and platforms in the long term. Skills in these areas are applied within the framework of student projects.
