I have begun a new unit, which is titled “Digital Media Environments”. The aim of this unit is to introduce me to the broader realms of Digital Media Environments. I will be encouraged to develop awareness of ways in which users access digital media viadifferent means, for example, broadcast, online-networks, social media, installation, and mobile platforms. I will be encouraged to design and develop solutions that are thematically coherentand work across different media platforms.
The Assignment for this unit is to create a “Social” Web based application that addresses a specific “problem” of a target audience of our choice. The application will be browser based and use technologies of HTML 5 and CSS for the visual design. I will also be using a database and “server side” scripting language to control the data “architecture” of the the application.
This will be a collaborative project, therefore, I will be working in small groups and will contribute code to a shared online repository. However, I must document the entire process individually through this web blog, no less than 12 posts, totally no less than 1500 words. This is to illustrate my reflection on all aspects of the unit.
THE DEADLINE FOR THIS THIS UNIT IS MONDAY 20TH APRIL 12PM, HOWEVER DUE TO THE EASTER BREAK IT MUST BE COMPLETED BY FRIDAY 27TH MARCH.
