MDIA 4302 - Modern Web Design

Media Communications Part-time Studies Course

School of Business + Media

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

In this course we will deal with four broad design areas in terms of contemporary issues in web design — website usability, effective use of colour, modern trends in web design, and website accessibility (for those with disabilities). In the assignments, you will explore all of these issues by analyzing a small website from their portfolio and illustrating how the issues raised in this course could be implemented to provide a better and modern user experience. You will be given a number of tools and checklists to use in analyzing websites that will help you enhance the user experience.
