Course Information and Descriptions
DMD 216 Interactive Scripting (2-2)
3 Hours
This course is designed for digital media designers who need to
integrate advanced control management and interactivity into their
media applications. Students will gain a fundamental knowledge of a
popular scripting language for making media applications that users
can interact with. The focus of the course is on using pre-designed
models and functions in industry-standard software that embed the
scripting language to create interactivity involving graphics, audio,
video, animation and other media elements. Students will use
creative and logical thinking while completing three major projects
concerning animation, game, and Web site design. The concepts,
principles, and steps of interaction design will be introduced and
applied to the projects.
Prerequisite: DMD 116 or Consent of Instructor.

DMD 217 Multimedia Authoring (3-0)
3 Hours
This course is geared toward multimedia designers who will be
creating kiosks, CD ROM software, marketing and educational
software, and interactive sites. Students will use a popular authoring
software package to create an interactive multimedia presentation.
The design, storyboarding, prototyping, testing and production
techniques for creating a multimedia package will be followed with
the final project.
DMD 218
Advanced Web Design
and Development (2-2)
3 Hours
This course takes DMD 116 Web Design and Development to
another level and has a two-fold focus. A state-of-the-art Web design
program will be used to explore advanced Web production skills
such as layers and table-free layouts, templates, re-usable elements,
external Cascading Style Sheets, XML, automation of dynamic
HTML, and site management. Through projects, the course will
also cover more advanced design concepts in Web site creation,
such as efficient navigation design, designing for portability and
accessibility, separating content from presentation for easy site
updating and maintenance, planning interactivity, and search engine
optimization. Throughout the course, students will also review how
to adapt the basic principles of design to the Web environment,
particular how to use color and typography creatively in Web
design, and how to achieve effective Web page layout.
Prerequisite: DMD 116 -OR- CIT 170

DMD 219 Building Instructional Websites (3-0)
3 Hours
Students will examine the application of instructional design to
teaching through an Internet or Intranet. Students will be creating
advanced web pages for use in a training or educational setting,
examining methods of creating interactive learning experiences and
examining methods to integrate learning strategies into online course
material.
Prerequisite: DMD 111, DMD 115, DMD 116 or consent of
instructor.
DMD 233 Digital Video Editing (2-2)
3 Hours
This course introduces students to the basics of postproduction
non-linear digital video editing for multimedia, video and web
capabilities. Students will produce, edit, and optimize video using
industry relevant editing software. Upon completion of the course
students will be able to create and produce digital videos and
incorporated compressed and rendered projects into CD ROMs,
DVD and Web technologies. In addition to learning the technical
capabilities of the software, students will discuss digital video theory,
concepts of video art and design, and the role digital video plays in
the world of film, animation, animation and Web interactivity.

DMD 251 Advanced 3D Modeling (2-2)
3 Hours
This course is designed as an advanced modeling course for students
who are experienced with basic 3D modeling concepts and technical
practice. The course introduces more sophisticated concepts and
techniques such as polygon modeling, texture mapping, lighting and
rendering. Through hands-on practice students will focus on
modeling concepts and development relating to character,
environmental, materials and lighting design.
Prerequisite: ART 264
Course fee
DMD 253 Advanced 3D Animation (2-2)
3 Hours
This course is designed as an advanced animation course for students
who are experienced with basic 3D animation concepts and technical
practice. The course introduces more sophisticated concepts and
techniques with an emphasis on animation development through
hands-on practice. The course will focus on animation concepts and
creative animation design expanding students’ knowledge of topics,
tools and techniques.
Prerequisite: ART 264

DMD 256
Dynamic Web Design
and Development (2-2)
3 Hours
This project-based, advanced course is developed for digital media
designers who will be creating Web sites with dynamic content and
secure data transfer. Students will learn to use industry-standard
software/applications to set up Web sites with dynamic content and
professional-quality customizable pages. Emphasis will be on how to
use the built-in features of the software/applications to complete
desired tasks, such as form processing, retrieving data from a
database and updating the database from a Web interface, and giving
the user password-secured access to Web sites. Students will learn
the basic syntax of a popular server-side language for dynamic page
generation. The database query language SQL will also be
introduced.
Prerequisite: DMD 116 with a grade of C or better.

DMD 257 Interactive Animation (2-2)
3 Hours
This course is an overview of developing and designing interactive
presentations, animations and Web sites using an industry relevant,
vector-based interactive animation program. Topics covered include
storyboarding, 2D animation, scripting, navigational mapping and
motion graphics. Upon completion of the course students should be
able to design and create interactive presentations utilizing
animations, audio, video, and navigational components incorporated
into CD ROM, DVD and Web technologies. In addition to learning
the technical capabilities of the software, students will discuss
Multimedia theory, concepts of interactive art and design, and the
role interactive animation plays in the world of Web interactivity.
