Interactive Media Project Major 2 (MMDE5002)


This unit of study delivers a strong basis in the processes associated with the design, development and implementation of interactive applications for handheld interactive devices such as the iPad. The unit provides you both with a historical and conceptual framework in which to conceive of and develop your own projects.
You will learn a range of approaches to interactive authoring including models of visual communication and the principles of effective screen design for multimedia as it relates to touchscreen devices. You will also explore a range of approaches and methodologies related to ePublishing and newly emergent workflows. In this unit you are encouraged to critically engage with the implementation of media and interactivity in relation to the multimedia experience.
You are expected to produce an application that engages current technologies in a creative and explorative manner and a set of professional standard pre-production documents as well as a final dossier that documents the development and implementation of your major project.
