Description

Rhino is the industry standard of 3D modeling applications, both affordable and easy to learn. Its files can be exported into any program that supports surfaces or solids, or into CAD/CAM and other prototyping applications used by product designers, as well as those used for architectural and jewelry design and rendering, computer animation, filmmaking and web design. Realistic renderings are generated by outputting to programs such as Maya, Flash, Photoshop and other popular software. Work begins with a sketch, drawing or physical model and Rhino provides the tools to construct realistic models. Learning the communication language unique to this 3D modeling application allows students to fully realize their designs, as they produce the illusion of three dimensions in digital form. Note: Prior 3D modeling experience is not required. This course is taught on a Windows platform.

Applies to: AN-E, IT-E, JM-R, PM-R

Description

This course is for those who have wanted a functional, user-friendly website for a business, hobby or other use, but thought it would be too difficult or expensive to achieve. This course will explore different web building options, focusing primarily on WordPress, the leading CMS (Content Management System) not requiring programming skills. Students will build their own website during the course and have a fully functional site by the end. The course will cover registering a domain name, identifying image sources, finding low-cost options for e-commerce, hosting and other vendors, identifying the desired features and planning the website architecture (wireframing), and then actually building the site.

Applies to: AN-E, GR-E, ID-E, IT-E, JM-E, NS-E, PG-E, PM-E, PS-E

Description

As the preeminent presentation language of the web, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) allows designers to effectively separate form and content, while reinforcing their control over a site's published appearance. With the introduction of CSS3 and HTML5 standards, the web is becoming a much more stable and robust platform for designers, whose work must now stretch from traditional desktop browsers to an ever-widening array of mobile devices. In this course, students become familiar with CSS behavior through lectures and exercises in a project-based learning model that anticipates the likely changes in CSS standards. Students can expect their resulting webpages to be more structurally sound, as they demonstrate the qualities that have long been associated with inspired design.

Applies to: GR-E, IT-R

Prerequisite: Interactive Design: Introduction

Description

In this fast-moving and cutting-edge web design course, students learn a code driven approach to visual styling for web presentation and deployment. The course begins with a "decode" of the vocabulary and connects it to workflow. Students learn CSS and JavaScript and get a practical understanding of broad topics (web layout and behavior) through specific exercises (styling Scalable Vector Graphics, or SVG). Students will get a glimpse of the interactive future as they consider how code will influence 3D graphics and virtual reality. While the instructor will provide the content, students are welcome to work on sites to which they have access, ensuring that the course is responsive to individual needs.

Applies to: AT, YD

Description

If you want your site to look and behave great on both mobile and desktop you'll need a responsive design. Bootstrap's industry-standard responsive framework comes with pre-built CSS classes and media queries that make building your mobile-ready site faster and easier than coding from scratch. In addition, Bootstrap has a number of available components like buttons, carousels, modals and more that are common user interface elements used throughout today's web. You'll learn how to implement these common interface elements, and modify them to apply your own customized designs. You should be comfortable with HTML and CSS in order to get the most out of this course.
