Berwick Second semester 2005 (Day)
Synopsis: This unit aims to enhance the students' understanding of the multimedia development process, to give them a 'hands-on' understanding of the techniques, tools and products used in multimedia systems, and to give them practical experience in the development of multimedia products, services and systems. They will be required to undertake project development work, both by themselves and in groups. The projects will aim to give them practice in identifying multimedia opportunities and specifying product and system requirements, and in building multimedia products and system components.
Assessment: Practical Assignments and Project Work: 100% Practical assignment and project work will aim to produce multimedia products or components of multimedia systems which will be done both individually and in groups. Individual components will aim to assess the student's competence in the practical use of multimedia tools and system management tools and techniques (knowledge, understanding and skill objectives), and group components will be used to assess their ability to work collaboratively (knowledge and attitude objectives). The advice and guidance of leading practitioners from industry will be used to refine and apply baseline criteria for assessment.
