COMM 225: New Media Techniques
In this course, students learn the tools and techniques of New Media production. As students hone foundational technical skills, they consider the cultural and expressive implications of using a variety of new media forms, including hypertext, games, maps, augmented reality and virtual reality. Students create a portfolio of projects to explore and refine the relationship of form and of content in new media, while simultaneously gaining an understanding of the building blocks of digital projects.

Our themes will include: nonlinear storytelling, play, interactivity, participation, site-specificity and immersion.
