Include image mock-ups showing what you hope to accomplish.|
|Project update presentations||In class April 21. Please prepare a 10 minute powerpoint presentation outlining: your problem description, progress so far and what further steps you will take (100 pts).|
|Final project presentations||In class May 5 & 7, see below for schedule. Please prepare a 20 minute presentation (longer for larger groups). This presentation should outline: your problem description, implementation details, results and a demo of your system.|

This course will focus on developing a hands on understanding of various types of multi-media. There will be 4 assignments related to the main course topics. Students will also be responsible for defining and developing a project related to multi-media over the course of the semester, including a project proposal, status update, and final project presentation with web documentation.
Late homeworks will be accepted with a 10% reduction in value per day late.
Grading will consist of 60% assignments, 30% project, 10% participation.
You do not need to have taken CSE/ISE 334. Students are expected to be proficient in programming and the basics of digital media, but I will provide most necessary background for the course as we go. Come talk to me if you have any questions!
