Digital Techniques - Online
This introductory course in computer skills is a requirement to complete the Foundation curriculum. Students will explore the computer as a tool in support of artist/designer's practice, including software required for the college information system, word processing and creative digital imagery in both pixel and vector based software. Students work with popular software packages, appropriate for design, to gain an understanding of the tools used to create and manipulate digital imagery and to develop a broad understanding of how and why the computer is so prominent in image making today.
Available as a Hybrid - Students work both online and in-person on campus, with class times: M 4-6:435 pm and as an Online Asynchronous class - students review course material and submit weekly assignments without a designated meeting time.
HYB = Blended Online and In-Person
Hybrid learning integrates both face-to-face and online coursework to maximize peer interaction. Students pursuing hybrid or blended courses attend on-campus sessions for a limited number of classes per semester for specific purposes, such as lab or studio instruction. Between the in-person meetings, students complete class assignments online synchronously (in real time, learning occurs at the same/time and place – i.e. via zoom) or asynchronously (learning does not occur at the same time or place – i.e. via Canvas).Class will meet 50 percent of the time in the classroom and 50 percent online.
ONLL = Asynchronous Online Courses (Lecture and Studio)
In Asynchronous classes, no learning takes place live. Asynchronous online courses don’t have set class meeting times. Instead, students are given lecture material and assignments to complete within a window, such as one week. Online learners can access coursework 24/7 whenever their busy schedules allow. Although there are syllabus deadlines, asynchronous online classes largely let students establish their own pace within the week.
Students will have access to Adobe Creative Suite through CCS for the duration of this course.
