Description

The consistent integration of multimedia (text, image, vector forms, animation, audio, video, 3D models assembled in interactive and navigational spaces) within applications becomes a recurrent requirement for building digital documents (Web pages, e-books, blogs, among others). The evolution of technology and the emergence of a plethora of tools aiming at processing multimedia and building documents makes it difficult to provide simple and efficient documents that provide clear messages and information. It is thus important to understand the digitalisation and processing challenges introduced by multimedia and their integration within digital documents.  These challenges call for expertise both in technological, communication and cognitive knowledge. This course, addresses the first expertise component: technology.
