In this course you will learn about two-dimensional computer animation and programming through the widely-used animation software Flash and scripting language ActionScript. This is a computer science course, so the emphasis will be on the computing aspects of animation, rather than on the artistic aspects. However, it is also purposely designed to allow students the creative freedom to explore their interests, whether those interests are artistic, musical, scientific, or just plain fun.

This course is designed to be an elective of interest to students in all areas, but it is also an alternative to CISC-101/3.0 in providing students with sufficient programming background to take CISC-121/3.0.

The course is broken up into 6 Labs/Assignments, 3 Tests and a Final Project. Weekly labs allow students to hone concepts learned during lectures in a collaborative environment with other students and TAs. The three tests are designed to assess your programming skills and the final project combines everything learned during the course and more.

Please feel free to email me if you have any further questions about the course or otherwise.
