Multimedia Authoring, part 2: 3-4/2009

The second part of the course focuses on multimedia authoring with interactive and generative media, using Flash and ActionScript. Additionally, it explores managing external media and data. It also contextualizes Flash and ActionScript within multimedia authoring and object-oriented programming. Students and teacher will exchange examples of Flash-based projects and online resources.

    In every course connected to programming i had there was some place where you can find and download examples from lessons to check the code and study it little more. Not sure about Multimedia authoring part 1 though, just don’t remember…it was kind of not very involving course anyway, too fast, too “neutral” to students in my opinion…

    Will be nice to have such a place for students in this course, so, if i miss one class, i can follow it’s learning curve…

    Thanx!
