Benefits

This class will prepare you for any job that needs a web site. Free lance or working for a web site design company. It is very hands on and very relevent today. It provides many helpful hints from someone who has been designing for a long time and also teaches you a couple different programs that are useful for many different things, for example, Photoshop and Illustrator. This course will also give you a basic understanding in creating FLASJ applications, such as the film clip on the home page.

 

Philosophy

Hands on is the order of semester, Prof. bradley  will get you into the doorway but how far one goes is entirely up to the student.  It has been described as a “sink or swim” Philosophy.  Don’t let this scare you though.  The requirements for the projects are modest; however the requirements alone will only amount to a “C”.  Initiative to discover more than the requirements will raise the grade.  He will be there to answer your question and to point a heaqing for you to follow.

 

Critique

JPC 345s, Web Design, highest priority is to teach the students practical and useful tools in order to design and navigate web sites and the newest design programs available. Professor red bradley equips his students with the direction towards the knowledge that they would need to know in order to professionally design a website for professional or personal reasons. It packs a lot of information in and includes several projects that each help develop a certain skill. One on one help is readily available and several in-class work periods are provided which are especially helpful in order to get help with any problems that the student has run into. It's a class that would be useful to have in order to get a well paying job or even to promote or run your own business. Everything that the student learns could be applicable to everyday matters, and it comes very highly recommended.

Head start tips

The course by itself will provide a the essentials of web design. But if your not a conformist with the basics, If you want a solid footing for going beyond the requirements if a "C" and place yourself on a fast track for the "A"... Then it is highly recomended that you familiarize your self in advance with HTML. Many HTML editing programs exist on the internet. Some are inexpensive and most have free trial periods (reserve the trial period of Macromedia productsfor this class). Build a plain no frills site. From there tweak it as you feel comfortable and note how the codetags affect the overall site. Refer to the Links page for helpful sites on understanding HTML code. Also it may prove helpful to look over the Sylubus for the Fall '06 semester.
