Description

A continuation of Digital Design Techniques, Part A (1466), this course continues with a more in-depth exploration of Adobe software by focusing on more detailed and challenging design projects. Starting with producing animated graphics in Photoshop, and then comparing that workflow and output to video production in Premiere, the need for separation of software tasks becomes apparent. Drawing precise graphics in Illustrator rounds out the Adobe workflow as students then organize their projects into a dynamic JavaScript-based website. Ultimately this course serves as a powerful introduction to common but important tasks in the digital design field for freelancers and members of art production teams alike. Note: Successful completion of "Digital Design Techniques, Part A" (1466) and "Digital Design Techniques, Part B" (1467) satisfies the certificate requirement for "Digital Design Techniques" (3542).

Notes:
- This is an asynchronous online course with no live class sessions or set meeting times. The course will include video presentations, detailed tutorials and discussion forums. Assignments will be sequenced so that one leads to the next and will include project deadlines. Students receive individualized support for idea development and critique of work. To keep pace with the course, students should expect to log in daily to CE Link, our online course management platform.
- This course requires access to Adobe Creative Cloud, or some of its creative tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Monthly subscriptions can be purchased from a variety of pricing plans directly from Adobe. Please visit the Adobe website for cost and downloading instructions. Be sure to check "minimum system requirements" for your computer before purchasing.
- Please visit our Registration FAQ for additional information and resources.

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

Description

JavaScript is a platform-independent, event-driven, interpreted programming language that enables a web designer to add exciting features to what might otherwise be a static webpage. The course starts with an introduction to the document object model and a review of basic programming concepts and builds momentum as students learn to use and customize freely available scripts and to avoid common pitfalls. Browser integration with a JavaScript enhanced page is also a lesson topic that satisfies the primary objective of all web authors as they create an attractive site with full data retrievability. Class exercises give students the experience of setting up a small set of webpages using examples of JavaScript, such as status bar messages, event handlers and image rollovers.
