Learning Outcomes

People responsible for developing small components to be integrated into a larger project apply the skills and knowledge described in this unit. They could be working under the direction of an interactive author or programmer to produce several web pages, or a sequence of screens for other forms of delivery.

They need to draw on technical assistance from a programmer or other technical support personnel to produce sequences for server side technologies.

In all cases, they are collaborating with other members of a team and need a sound understanding of the project on which they are working.

Overview of Assessment

Evidence of the following is essential:

   -  development of several discrete interactive media sequences that function as planned and demonstrate an understanding of basic visual design principles

   -  accuracy and attention to detail in the process of developing interactive media sequences.
