Interactive Media Project Major 1 (MMDE5001)


This unit of study delivers a strong basis in the processes associated with the design, development and implementation of an interactive website. The unit provides you both with a historical and conceptual framework in which to conceive of and develop your own online projects.
Over the course of this unit you will learn a range of approaches to interactive authoring for the web, including models of visual communication, principles of effective screen design as well as the principles of user-interface design and navigational architecture for web-based work. In this unit you are encouraged to critically engage with the implementation of media and interactivity in the online environment.
You are expected to produce a website that engages current web technologies in a creative and explorative manner and a set of professional standard production documents as well as a final dossier that documents the development and implementation of your major project.
