Computer Science 161. Web Programming, Graphics and Design

As Web pages proliferate on the Internet, it is becoming increasingly important to understand today’s technology. This course covers basic Web page design and creation using current software tools. Web pages are brought to life by adding custom graphics. Students create their own animated mini-movies using Flash. The course covers basic programming, using Flash ActionScript or similar, to allow students to create more sophisticated pages that include user interaction and real-world applications. Students practice many concepts while in the classroom, and design and program their own Web pages as a major component of the course.
