Course Description:

IS290 Digital Media Design Studio is an advanced graduate level studio course in which students develop and present a digital media application prototype. Projects would ideally involve the creation, use, and reuse of digital media and metadata (descriptions of media content and structure). IS290 Digital Media Design Studio is the second course of a two course series that began with IS246 Multimedia Information and is intended to enable Fall IS246 students to implement, iterate, and present their projects designed in IS246.

The course will feature two different sessions per week: 90 minutes of lecture/seminar and 90 minutes of studio instruction. The lecture/seminar topics and readings will include advanced topics in digital media applications and multimedia information systems focused on the particular student projects being developed in the course. The lecture/seminar sessions will also feature several guest lectures from leading digital media researchers and designers. The studio sessions will involve in-class design sessions, presentations, and crit of student work. Group projects (3 - 5 students per team) are strongly encouraged. The course will culminate in a public presentation of student projects with guest evaluators from industry and academia.
