Course Overview

Term 1
Make a movie based on a plan (6 credits)
The plan can also be done as a full assessment (3 credits). This assessment can be done individually or in groups.

Term 2
Develop a digital media outcome. (4 credits)
Media outcomes are things like websites, posters, brochures, videos etc. Think "media". So for those into coding it could be creating a website, or for others it could be using photoshop to create a poster or plenty of other software applications. Students can choose to do the designing of the outcome assessment (3 credits) as well as the developing of the outcome using the iterative process assessment (6 credits)

Term 3
Create a quiz using Python (4 credits)
Sounds tricky, but is good fun. The quiz will help you learn something needed for other subjects, like the Periodic Table or counting in Maori or whatever you think will be beneficial.

Search and Sort Algorithms (3 credits)
An option for student who don't want to take on the Python quiz.

Term 4
Usability of digital interfaces - External (3 credits)
Compulsory for those going for Course Endorsement. This was quite an interesting topic this year and the student seemed to do very well in the exam ... time will tell.
