Class Times: MWF 10-10:50 a.m.
Class Location: Trinity 113
This course is designed to instruct students in website construction and design. Students will learn HTML/CSS coding and introductory programming techniques and then be introduced to various multimedia programs.
The course will cover the usage of graphics, sound, and video and discuss the appropriateness of multimedia on websites for journalism, advertising, public relations, and e-commerce. Students will work on several small Web projects that will lead to a final multimedia project using WordPress as a content management system.
The goal is to emphasize more than just the skills associated with individual programs but the integration of several skills into designing effective and attractive websites.
In addition, the class will address social and theoretical implications of technology such as the digital divide, social media, and data journalism.
