The course is suitable for advanced and dedicated students with a keen interest in interactive experience design, and will engage students in exploring possibilities that take the user beyond the television screen, into the realm of technologically enabled and ‘aware’ devices and social web systems and environments. Students will employ iterative and participatory design strategies to create experimental solutions for entertainment-industry-based interactive experiences, which might use ambient, adaptive, expressive, persuasive, or locative technologies.
