Interactive Communication - ICOM897

This unit is concerned with web design and the structure and communication of information online. It offers practical as well as theoretical instruction on front-end web development, and focuses on developing contemporary skill sets that unify information dissemination and information design. The theoretical aspects will study the multidimensional impact of new media on audiences in the context of international communication. The practical aspects are designed to equip students with web design skills to build their own website for the purpose of communicating a message to a target audience. Class sessions will introduce HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and examine how text, image, sound, video, and other media forms can be structured in hypertext and interacted with. While students are encouraged to bring their experiences with new media and their multidisciplinary knowledge learned in their previous studies to the class and contribute to the critical discussions in studying this unit, no prior coding knowledge is required.
