Syllabus Course Meeting Times Lectures: 2 sessions / week, 1.5 hours / session Class Description This class covers the analysis, design, implementation and testing of various forms of digital communication based on group collaboration. Students are encouraged to think about the Web and other new digital interactive media not just in terms of technology but also broader issues such as language (verbal and visual), design, information architecture, communication and community. Students work in small groups on a semester-long project of their choice. Various written and oral presentations document project development. Message to Participants This class gives you the chance to experiment with any form of digital technology to communicate with others in a workshop setting. Small collaborative groups develop projects throughout the semester. As your projects progress, you study the rhetoric of digital communication, the visual language of design and appropriate technical implementation, and your project groups report on these topics in a variety of written and oral presentations. Guest speakers visit frequently, and classes are largely devoted to informal discussion.
