Welcome to ATCM 3335.001 - Internet Studio 2. I am your instructor, Ken Starzer. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this course.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to meet the following learning outcomes:
Build sites based on web standards and using human-centered design
Critique web designs based on design principles rather than feelings or hunches
† Attendance and Tardy Policy — Attendance is mandatory. Lack of attendance will affect your grade because absences will not only leave holes in understanding of the lesson contents but also degrade the benefit to other students in regard to discussions and work sessions. Coming to class late or leaving early will also be counted as absences without prior approval from the instructor.
‡ Late assignments — Assignments not turned in on time (7:00pm on the due date) will be docked 1.0 point (i.e., from 2.3 to 1.3). Assignments not turned in by 7:00pm one week after the due date will receive a 0.
Because this course builds on concepts learned week-to-week, it’s important that you participate individually and collectively to insure that everyone has a successful learning experience. You’ll be evaluated on:
Assignments will be discussed throughout the course, with specific requirements spelled out.
