Course Descriptions

Interactive Design & Animation with Adobe Animate CC I

Learn the basics of HTML5 motion graphics and animation for websites and banner ads, using Adobe Animate CC (which now incorporates functionality from Adobe Edge Animate and Adobe Flash Professional). Students will learn to prepare and import graphics and create an HTML5 animated motion graphics presentation, as might be used for the introduction for a website, and add basic interactivity.

Students will also create an animated banner ad, with attention to typical requirements for commercial banner ad placement. The course includes an overview of HTML5 animation tools and options for publishing to various platforms, including the iPad and other mobile devices.

Interactive Design & Animation with Adobe Animate CC II

Learn more sophisticated HTML5 web animation techniques, with attention to issues of timing, easing, encapsulating motion ("symbols") and the use of simple scripting to control timeline functions. Students will learn how to provide interactivity for responding to user input within a motion graphic presentation.

Animated GIFs and the Google Web Designer banner ad creation tool will also be covered, along with the use of HTML5 animation tools to prepare static webpages, and the incorporation of existing HTML elements into HTML5 animations. The course includes an overview of the current state of HTML5 and animation, and potential future trends, including the increasing importance of design for mobile devices.
