INP 255: Animation on the Web
This course introduces students to effective use of animation for the web. Students will learn a brief history of animation and how animation has become a growing trend in presenting information on the web. The class will use Macromedia Flach 4 as the main tool to create web animations in the exercises, but many other forms of animation and software used on the web will also be explored and discussed. Students will learn when and why animation is used as well as when it should be avoided or minimized. Students will gain an understanding of all aspects of animating for the web from concept, to storyboarding, to final production and implementation. In learning the animation process, they will gain a working knowledge of Flash as a design, animation, and drawing tool for web design. Students will also gain valuable experience using the web to research further information on Flash animation techniques, as well as how to use the web as a resource tool to gain further animation knowledge, skills and inspiration.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”—Wendy L., 48
