Welcome to Web Design and Publishing!
This course (MC 4315) is designed to instruct students in website construction and design. Students will learn HTML, CSS, jQuery, web design programs like Adobe Photoshop, as well as the multimedia program iMovie. 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 one final multimedia project. The goal is to emphasize more than just the skills associated with individual programs, but the integration of several programs into designing effective and attractive websites.
In addition, the class will address social and theoretical implications of technology, such as the digital divide, cyberlaw, e-commerce, and web content credibility and accessibility.
I am looking forward to a fun and creative semester!
