Aims:
To develop understanding and skills in multimedia production techniques, to create an interactive game.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
A series of lecture sessions incorporate both traditional lectures and practical exercises aimed at introducing the component parts of multimedia systems and how using human-computer interaction we can bring them together. Activities in laboratory sessions and directed study build a practical understanding in the development of components of multimedia systems (animation, video, sound, imagery) as well as multimedia authoring software used in the systems construction. Coursework assessment will assess the application of practical skills as well as problem solving skills.
Students will undergo formative assessment mid-term and received feedback from which to take summative feedback at the end of the module. Students must engage with the formative assessment in order to submit summative assessment at the end of the module.
Supplementary assessment: repair deficiencies in original submission.
