CSDI-1200 Web Expressions - Syllabus

Course Description

The World Wide Web (WWW) has allowed all people to have a global voice. Students learn to harness the power of the web to express themselves to the world. This class covers the creation of images, sounds, animation, text, hypertext, video and weblogs as well as how to be a savvy web user.

Creative Thought Direction

People need to be creative in order to thrive in our complex and changing world.

People need to understand the creative processes that lead to the generation of ideas and to engage in new interpretations of existing ideas.  Creative thought courses encourage students to recognize beauty in its many manifestations and to become aware of formal elements of creative expression.
These courses also encourage students to view themselves as creative beings, to appreciate creativity in others and to regard creativity as an essential component in all areas of human endeavor.  In these courses, students develop and value perseverance and a tolerance for ambiguity.  Students are challenged to appreciate aesthetic forms, to use their imaginations and to develop the skills and attitudes that allow creativity to flourish:  independence and nonconformity, the ability to organize and reorganize information and the confidence to think in new ways.

This course emphasizes the skills of critical thinking and creativity while working with information technology
