ART 002 Interactive Learning and Web-Design (3)

(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.

This course is constructed to introduce students to doing research on-line, preparing the verbal, visual and other elements for a presentation of their research and posting them to the Internet with special emphasis placed on the aesthetics of Web design and effective communication.

Both individual and group projects are included. It is intended to provide the skills to work collaboratively using computers and the Internet effectively, efficiently and with an awareness of the aesthetic qualities of that work. This final emphasis is particularly important since the quality of presentation is not included in most classes where Web sites are developed and they are crucial to the effective use of this medium. Aesthetic judgments by the students of their peers work is central to making comprehensive and complete evaluations of it. A central message of the course is that content and presentation cannot be separated and a primary skill to be learned is how to discover, create and refine images for use on the Web in conjunction with clear, well-organized and legible text.

The student's work will be evaluated on the basis of how well they grasped the problem, worked with others to solve it, when required, and the effectiveness of the final result.
