Whether you'd like to build effective information tutorials or attention-getting animation sequences, the Adobe Flash environment is for you. Gain experience with this cutting-edge multimedia technology tool.

This  course is ideal for beginners with little or no prior experience using Flash software, a web animation authoring tool. The class provides experience developing web-based multimedia materials that contain sound, graphic, animation, and interactive components. Students will be involved in examining and evaluating existing Flash projects, gaining hands-on experience through a series of practical skills-building tasks, and planning and creating a meaningful, authentic final project such as an informational or instructional tutorial, a dynamic simulation, or an engaging multimedia activity. Regardless of whether you're interested in animation applications in library and information science, teaching and learning, or other fields, you'll find lots of practical ideas and develop marketable skills.

This course will expand your thinking about animation, interaction, and multimedia projects. It will also build your technical skills in using Adobe Flash. This Chapter of the course will be taught entirely online including web-based readings and resources, threaded discussions, plus online activities.
