First Day of Interactivity Courses at ECU

Today I started teaching the two Interactivity Courses at Emily Carr University. The courses are back to back 12:30 – 3:20pm and 3:50 – 6:40pm.

The Course Outline
This introductory studio course addresses the design, composition, and construction of computer interactivity in authoring environments, focusing on the Web. Emphasis is on increasing visual and sensory-based literacy through the application of digital skills. Students also learn to apply the principles and processes of interaction design for the use of animation, still imagery, video and sound for diverse applications, including those for educational, commercial, and communicative purposes.

This course will include:

  • Usability
  • User Experience
  • Graphical User Interface Design
