Advanced Interfaces 36-3110

The broader and interdisciplinary foundational understanding of media related theories from preceding courses is leveraged to explore advanced theory and practice of interface design. Supplementing the navigation interface study in Media Theory and Design 3, this course focuses on impressive and environmental models of interaction design, including simulations and game design. Students produce substantial written critiques as well and paper based written proposals for their own interactive work to demonstrate a literate and evolved understanding of the diverse media theories that influence design.

Coordinator : Tom Dowd Tdowd@colum.edu
Students will be able to...
  • Create interfaces that are not only visually pleasing, but are also very user-effective and have a great ease-of-use.  
  • Demonstrate a good working knowledge of new technologies and current best practices in interface design.  
  • Demonstrate knowledge of designing for an audience through research and testing.  
  • Use a strong vocabulary that allows them to critique both existing interfaces as well as their own.
