Visual Communications Project
In teams of five students produce a multimedia project that communicates information about an organization, group, social issue, etc. Student teams select one project from a group of projects to develop a multimedia project using their skills developed from the previous modules. These courses are a multidisciplinary approach that encourages learners to leverage the technology they use in their daily life to solve real-world problems.
The students are allowed to use Wix to create the websites so they don’t get caught up on the technology hurdles. However, the students need to focus on design and we do discuss best practices for making websites with them.
