This course is the second in a series of Web Practices courses designed to teach students how to clearly understand the multitude of considerations needed to strategize, design and create websites and web-based mobile products.
Through lectures, technical exercises, short in-class charrettes, project development cycles, and group critiques, students will build their technical and design skills. Students will practice a comprehensive web-based process through the dissemination of contemporary articles, texts and tutorials. Together with design principles, current issues of interaction and experience design are brought into focus as an important contribution to the dialogue between creative intention and audience. Students will be expected to contribute to class discussions regarding the readings, and be actively engaged in developing a research focus towards their investigation of the web design process.
This course has a strong emphasis on understanding the process of creating websites from an industry standard practice. Students are introduced to the various phases of a web project and are encourages to follow and practice these processes with the projects that will be assigned to them.
