CPSC 363 - New Media: Design

CISc 310 (4 credits)
Taught at Harrisburg University. This is the first course in a 2-semester sequence and is followed by CPSC 463 (New Media: Production). The last twenty-five years have seen a rapid transformation of media. The impetus for this transformation has been the use of digital devices, such as the Internet, mobile handsets, and computer games (both stand-alone and networked). However, these examples are only a small representation of new media. The use of computers has transformed the remaining ‘old’ media, as suggested by the advent of digital television and online publications. In the 1980s even traditional media forms saw transformation through the application of technologies such as image manipulation software and desktop publishing tools. Fall.
