General Course Description
This course covers basic multimedia concepts and applications utilizing text, graphics, animation, sound, video, and various multimedia applications in the design, development, and creation of multimedia presentations and publications in an interactive environment.
The layout of the workstations and equipment in the classroom is organized to facilitate teaching and student learning. The goal for the class is for students to learn about multimedia and be able to create several multimedia projects in different multimedia formats using The Adobe Suite, Google Drive and Windows Movie Maker.
The teaching strategies of explaining, demonstrating, monitoring, confirming and assisting will be used to meet the needs of all students. For example, students will learn a new concept, practice exercises applying the concept while the teacher observes, confirms, and/or assists. Instruction may be given to the entire class, small groups, and individually. The teacher will provide immediate feedback to the students. Students usually work independently in multimedia basics but some activities can be completed as small group projects.
