The aim of this unit is to introduce us to the global connections of Digital Media Environments. It will be encouraging us to develop awareness of ways in which users access digital media via different means, for example, broadcast, online-networks, social media, installation, and mobile platforms. We have been asked to design and develop a media that will be compatible across all platforms i.e computer, tablet and mobile.
This is a collaborative project where we will be put into small groups and will contribute code to a shared online repository and upload our work to a shared web server such as GitHub, we will however each keep an individual blog documenting and contextualising the processes and ideas which underpin the creation of the application.
We will be creating a “social” Web based application that addresses a specific “problem” of a target audience of your choice. Your application will be browser based and use the technologies of HTML5 and CSS for the visual design. You will also use a database and “server-side” scripting language to control the data “architecture” of the application.
THE DEADLINE FOR THIS THIS UNIT IS MONDAY 20TH APRIL 12PM, HOWEVER DUE TO THE EASTER BREAK IT MUST BE COMPLETED BY FRIDAY 27TH MARCH.
