Bender[email protected]Office hours:Tuesdays 3:00-4:00pm in Design North 286Graduate Assistants:TBATBATBAClass times:Lecture:Thursdays 6:00-7:15pm in Coor 170Labs:See course website for all lab times. Refer to your individual class schedule through ASUInteractive to determine your scheduled lab time and location. You are required to attend YOUR labtime during the last week of class. At all other times, labs are considered open for your use.Section 1 - Course Material1.1 Catalog DescriptionComputers in design, including software concepts, specific packages, problem solving, illustration, modeling, and animation.This course is a Computer/Statistics/Quantitative applications (CS) General Studies course for Arizona State University.1.2 Course Objectives & Learning OutcomesThis course serves as an introduction to computing in the design fields. Though listed as a lecture course, hands-on experience is provided.Assignments help students understand course principles in image-editing (Photoshop), vector graphics (Illustrator and InDesign) and 3D computermodeling (SketchUp). Topics include computing basics, design software concepts, the operation of specific software packages, color theory usingthe additive color system and the application of this software to solve design problems. Emphasis is placed on principles of computer-basedillustration, image manipulation, and 3D modeling, rendering, and animation. This course is intended to empower you with the knowledge ofcomputing that you need to succeed in various design professions. Because computer technology is constantly evolving, the ability to constantlychange and learn new platforms is expected. Therefore, an understanding of the underlying concepts and principles will be emphasized. At the endof this course, you will be able to select software appropriate to a given task and solve basic design representation problems using a combination ofsoftware tools.In this course, you will:Gain an awareness of how computers are used in various design disciplines and to support your own design interests.Become familiar with terminology related to hardware and software operation.Gain competence in the use of specific design software and understand the differences and similarities among them.Explore self-directed and autonomous forms of learning by using e-learning methodologies.Select, interpret, and apply appropriate ergonomic and anthropometric data (CIDA 7e).Express ideas developed in the design process through visual media, ideation drawings and sketches (CIDA 9d).
