This is a creative, application-based course focusing on the practical and theoretical study of participative media, software development and network technology.
Pushing the boundaries
The emphasis of the course is on software technology mediated communication between humans and information or business. It encourages individuals to work creatively and collaboratively in the application of technology and software to support participation in a virtual community.
What will I learn?
You will learn to apply emerging and existing software in new ways by customising existing software frameworks. The course explores the potential of network technology and software and its application in new services or products or to enhance the functions, usability and business provisions of existing ones.
Creative practice on the course is defined by its distinctive experimental approach to the development of participative web projects.
The course strives to create designers with the potential to innovate and influence web design practice who can realise relevant and elegant design proposals with commercial potential.
You are required to own or have access to a laptop from the beginning of your studies. Laptops are an essential tool to support personalised learning and give you access, when and where you want it, to many of the creative tools and educational resources you will encounter during your studies.
Laptops are used extensively in all of our courses. You will need one to access our network, and to research, communicate and collaborate during your studies.
