Course Description

Students will explore the creative possibilities of code and gain a working knowledge of variables, conditionals, loops, functions and objects as they learn the fundamentals of procedural thought. In different semesters, this course may focus on the design and creation of computer graphics, mobile apps, computational objects, or web applications. This semester we will focus on p5.js and Javascript.

The class is taught in the Media Arts Center in Basil 101; the software also is available on the iMacs in Kearney,  Lavery Library, and the TV studio (Basil 202).

DIGC/CSCI 158 is required for the Digital Cultures and Technologies major and minor (beginning in 2016).  It may also be used as an elective in the minor in Information Technology. Media and Communication majors or minors who complete COMM 269: Web Design and at least one of COMM 362: Interactive Media Design or COMM 468: Advanced Web Design may petition to have it count for that degree program.  The course also fulfills one half of the core P4 requirement.
