SFSU Multimedia Studies to offer 14 online Internet Design and Technology
courses this fall
You no longer need to live near San Francisco's Multimedia Gulch to learn
Web design skills from the area's top industry experts.
For the first time ever beginning this fall, San Francisco State University's
Multimedia Studies Program will offer 14 online courses as part of the
Internet Design and Technology certificate program. The courses will be
offered on the Web thanks to a $100,000 grant from eCollege.com, a Denver-based
e-learning software and services provider that partners with colleges,
universities, K-12 school districts and corporate training organizations
to design, build and support e-learning communities.
"Anyone from anywhere in the world can now learn the skills of Web
design from the top industry experts in Multimedia Gulch and Silicon Valley,"
said Chris Marler, director of technology programs for the SFSU College
of Extended Learning. "No matter where you are, you can experience
the superior course content and level of student-teacher interaction provided
in our online courses."
To help create forums for interaction and feedback, instructors will hold
weekly live chat "office hours," participate in bulletin board
discussions and answer student questions via e-mail. The online courses
also feature audio lectures, readings, illustrations, video and homework
projects. In addition, online classes allow students to take courses at
their own convenience and speed, as all course content can be accessed
24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Internet Design and Technology certificate program prepares students
for a multitude of careers in Web design, development and management.
Online course offerings include Dreamweaver, Flash, HTML, Information
Understanding the Internet, Web Design and Web Video. Each course lasts
12 weeks. All 20 courses in the program will be offered online by summer
