SIT162 extends the investigation and application of the principles and practices of interactive media from an independent technical perspective to a systems perspective. Students will develop and demonstrate competence in connecting various multimedia formats to deliver a cohesive product that achieves given specifications, while taking into consideration user needs, suitable technology and appropriate design. This will allow students to form the theoretical basis for subsequent practical, organisational and theoretical inquiry into interactive media.
