More Information

Section Description

Advanced web design can be broken into two main areas, CSS and User Experience. In the first half o the class we concentrate on really understanding the CSS rules and coming up with two different designs for each assignment to help us really become creative. The second half focuses on the usability or user experience of web sites to make your websites friendlier and easier to use.

Section Expectation

This is an online course in Blackboard where you are expected to participate in discussions on each module. You can expect to work on the computer several hours each day (the actual amount of time will vary from person to person) I would plan on about 4 hours a day (we take weekends off :) and see how you do. You may spend less or you may spend more depending on your comfort level. We read about 2 chapters each module covering two or three modules each week. The course is faster the first several weeks so that you have time to work on a final project the last week and a half without any new material. All work is peer graded but reviewed by myself or a teaching assistant.

Evaluation

you will be graded on roughly five assignments, a mid term exam, a final exam, your final project and your participation in the discussion boards. Half the work is individual work with the other half assigned groups. The final project you can work in a group of your choice from 1 to 3 people in the group (1 being by yourself :)
