The class consists of one 2-hour lecture and two 1-hour lectures a week, private reading time and two assignments.
See the online timetable for scheduled times.
In addition to teaching, the Thursday lecture slot will sometimes be used for assignment feedback and student presentations. You will be notified in class of these events as they approach.
The main emphasis of this course is on practical work. Lectures, for the main part, are used to teach the concepts and ideas behind a wider range of multimedia software than that used in the assignments; however, they will also be used, where necessary, to provide technical assistance specific to the two practical assignments.
The first practical is an individual project, and the second practical is a group project. Groups will be assigned by the course coordinator.
