COURSE SYLLABUS

1. Department: Information Technology Education 8. Pre-requisite subject: ITEW101

2. Course Code: ITMM201 9. Co-requisite subject: none

3. Course Title: Introduction to Multimedia 10. Clientele: Information Technology / Information Systems

4. Course Description: This course focuses on issue surrounding 11. Requirements:


multimedia, including the role of and design of multimedia systems a) Seat works and class participation
which incorporate digital audio, graphics and video, underlying b) Quizzes
concepts and representations of sound, pictures and video, data c) Project
compression and transmission, integration of media, multimedia d) Major Exams (Midterm and Final)
authoring, and delivery of multimedia.
12. Grading System:
5. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, students should a) 50-based (a score of zero in the quizzes and long term exams
be able to: means a grade of 50) except for No Project (a grade of zero)
a) Identify the different elements that make up multimedia b) Midterm
b) Use the basic and advanced features of the following multimedia • Class Standing (CS) = (Q1 + Q2 + Q3) / 3
tools: • Midterm (MT) = (2 x CS + Midterm Exam) / 3
• bitmap/image editor c) Final term
• vector graphics editor • Class Standing (CS) = (Q4 + Q5 + Q6) / 3
• audio editor • Final term (FT) = (2 x CS + Final Exam) / 3
• MIDI editor d) Seat works and the likes are added to Quizzes as plus
• 3D modeling and animation editor, and e) Project
• video editor. • Project = (Midterm Project + Final term Project) / 2
c) Produce a short multimedia project that incorporates text, • Note: No Project means a Project Grade of zero (0)
graphics, audio, video or animation elements. f) Final Grade = MT x 40% + FT x 40% + Project x 20%
g) Equivalence:
6. Unit Credit/Time Allotment: 3 / 54 hours • 98 – 100 = 1.00
• 95 – 97 = 1.25
