    Course Description:

    Computer Applications is a semester course requiring highly developed skills in technology.

    This course covers advanced web design concepts and processes. Project planning, design and production skills are developed through applied projects. Advanced and dynamic methods in joining content and interactivity design are introduced. Highly structured as well as highly experimental approaches to web design will be explored in this course.
