Multimedia Application Development

CGT 45100 / 3 Cr. (2 Class, 2 Lab)

A continuation of 35100, this course builds on the basic principles of interactive multimedia and builds towards intermediate methods in interactive media.  Interactive multimedia is the uses of content forms that includes a combination of text, audio, still images, animation, video, and interactivity content forms sometimes called "rich media" or interactive multimedia that describes as electronic media devices used to store and experience multimedia content.  Examples of interactive multimedia are DVD menu's, Online Applications, Presentations, kiosks, ATM's, DVR Menus, Information Screens (Airports, Restaurants, etc), Computer Games, and many other forms of communication.
