Undergraduate Faculty of Information Technology
Leader(s): Dr Alan Dorin
Clayton Second semester 2009 (Day)
At the completion of this unit, students will have an understanding of:
- understanding of how to program dynamic web pages via CGI scripts;
- how to represent virtual spaces over the Internet using VRML/QuicktimeVR;
- how to create appropriate media for visual, aural and text-based communication: animation, sound, typography, layout, colour;
- cognitive models for human-computer interaction and how they may be applied to interface design;
- user-centred design of electronic and physical artefacts;
- user-interface design for maximising productivity;
- information architecture appropriate for web site development.
At the completion of this unit, students will have attitudes that will allow them to:
- appreciate the role of the user or consumer in the design of interactive electronic systems and devices;
- understand the value of developing cognitive models from a human-centred perspective in the design and evaluation of interactive devices and systems.
At the completion of this unit, students will be able to:
- design and implement an interactive website of modest complexity;
- create and combine elements in a variety of media - sound, image, animation and motion graphics and interactive 3D.
- effectively work in a small group to design and build a interactive media website;
- apply critical analysis and judgement to the design and usability of interactive media works created by their peers.
