BSC (HONS) IN WEB MEDIA TECHNOLOGY WITH SPECIALISM IN EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY
This programme is specifically designed to provide:
Specialised modules at Level 1 that provide appropriate foundation for a technical professional in the field of Web Media Technology include Interactive Media & Web Design Technology, Audio Visual Technology, Introduction to Graphics & Basic 3D Applications, Digital Image Production, and Introduction to Interactive Scripting. System Analysis & Design and Introduction to Databases are skills needed by IT professionals in general. Understanding of the work environment and aspects of personal and organisational development are provided by Computing & IT in the Workplace and Introduction to Management. Important and relevant skills for independent learning are introduced throughout this level.
In addition to the above, all students are also required to successfully complete General Studies modules as stipulated by the Malaysian Qualification Agency, as well as fulfill credit requirements for Co-Curricular Activities.
Effective design of learning systems requires knowledge of learning theories and techniques together with an ability to analyse and design educational products. The specialised modules Instructional Design and IT for Learning give you an understanding of the theory of developing instructional material, apply knowledge of instructional design, learning theories, learning strategies and HCI to the development of a computer assisted learning package, and test its effectiveness in learning environment. Useful technical skills are developed through Web Applications, Web Multimedia, Developing Interactive Multimedia, and Principles of Creative Animations.
Independent learning continues in all modules but is a particular focus and requirement in Research Methods.
The focus of Level 3 is further development of relevant technical skills and the ability to apply these skills with strong critical thinking and analysis. Learning Technology through Project-based Learning and Interactive Learning Systems provide an in depth understanding of instructional design and teaching and learning strategies, and how to translate theory into practice through the design, development and evaluation of learning technologies. Advanced Multimedia and Advanced Web Multimedia build on Level 2 counterparts to provide in depth knowledge of tools and techniques, and are complemented by an introduction to a range of visualisation, simulation, and virtual reality techniques and software. Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management & New Product Development provide enhanced understanding of the business environment for web media applications.
The Web Media Project also develops the academic and practical aspects of your chosen areas of study and reinforces your independent learning skills. This is where you will demonstrate higher level critical thinking, analysis and solutions development skills which will enhance your employability.
Note: The specialism will appear only in the academic transcript.
You will be prepared to work with a variety of stakeholders and subject matter experts to analyse needs, design, develop, test, and deploy Computer Based Training (CBT) and Web Base Training (WBT) materials that are grounded in an appropriate theoretical foundation, meet accepted professional standards, and are innovative, creative, and engaging.
