CGD 101:Course Justification Why is Adobe Flash importantto high school graduates’ preparedness for the job market or post secondary education in the field of Information Technology? Adobe Flash is now, arguably, the most widely distributed and most platform independent plugin architecture for multimedia playback available today. The Flash Player is installed on many devices when they leave the factory, from PCs and Macs, through PDAs, Mobile Phones and Set-top TV decoders - it is even used to provide interfaces to equipment like home security panels and similar products.

Computer/Video Game Categories: Action Action games tend to have a large amount of violence due to their fast-paced nature. This is the category that most are rated "M" (mature-rated) Adventure and Role Playing Adventure and role playing games are usually less graphic than action games and typically have an element of surrealism and/or fantasy. Arcade Arcade games can be almost anything from the violent Street Fighter to the classic Pacman. Strategy Strategy games most often involve tactical movement of troops and/or players. These games may be warfare based or may be as simple as chess. Simulation Simulation games are often aircraft simulations. Driving Driving games are most often racing, but some are also crash derby or mission-based. Puzzle Puzzle games are almost never rated higher than ‘E’ (for everyone). They all take thinking and logic skills.

4002-330 Interactive Digital Media This course introduces an event-driven scripting environment to enable the development of highlyinteractive user experiences. Students will learn to manage and edit a wide variety of digital media types—still and motion graphics, 3D, text, audio, and video, for example—and write code to allow users to access, control, and manipulate each of these media types. Students will gain foundation skills in media asset creation and in prototyping for applications and interface development. Programming will be required. Credits: 4
Questions? Employment of computer software engineers is projected to increase by 38 percent over the 2006 to 2016 period, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. This occupation will generate about 324,000 new jobs, over the projections decade, one of the largest employment increases of any occupation. U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics
