This unit shows students how to work in a creative production environment, with the goal to produce and publish a digital product. Students will learn about multidisciplinary teams that exist within creative technology production, and demonstrate their ability to work in these environments by designing, developing, testing and publishing a digital product for a specific audience. To achieve this, students will learn about the stages of creative production, as applicable to a variety of situations, and engage with digital application publishing processes such as methods of digital distribution, content ratings, social issues, legal and licensing issues, and international publishing standards. Underlying creative technology production will be strong consideration of the user experience, with testing conducted throughout the teaching period to support quality assurance of any digitally distributed product. Students will have the opportunity to focus assessment tasks on products relevant to their specific course and interests while learning and engaging with the broader field of digital production.
