Welcome to Multimedia 10

You will find all the resource and material necessary to complete the three modules of Multimedia 10. You will be learning how to make effective presentations, how to build your own webpages and how to build and use databases. Before we start on these three different projects we will spend about a week learning how to use your computers more efficiently and introduce you to using Google email and Google Apps which you will hopefully start to use daily in your studies and homework for ALL your other classes.

Multimedia 10 at a Glance:

Below is a quick breakdown of the course and the modules that will be taught in Computer 10.

Module 1

Students will:  
  • identify and discuss the elements and principles of design
  • discuss typography as it relates to the use of text in visual messages
  • produce visual compositions using a variety of media, e.g., print, photography, video, animation, where a number of elements and principles of design are used and have an identifiable impact on the intent of the message

Module 3

Students learn the technical and creative uses of:
  • aperture
  • shutter-speed and ISO
  • operation of a camera to capture images
  • demonstrate how combinations of the three elements give very different results
  • discover how a correct exposure is obtained through the combination of shutter speed, aperture and ISO, which make up the photographic triangle

Module 4

Students learn the fundamentals of consumer-based digital image acquisition, management, composition, manipulation and editing software to improve image composition.

Students will:
