ENG 3790 – Information Architecture

With Professor Patrick Corbett

Information Architecture as described is a theory and practice-based course which provides students with concepts and practices of information architecture such as organization, labeling, navigation, and metadata. I was able to practice these concepts through studying how humans and places whether physical or digital interact.

ENG 3760 – Digital Storytelling

With Professor Jason Ellis

Digital Storytelling is a deeply immersive class which throws PTW students right into the heart of digital environments. As a student in the Digital Storytelling class I was able to learn how to identify common elements of digital stories and then use these elements to create my own digital story in both an individual and collaborative setting. Students were also given the tools and documentation to analyze how storytellers use digital tools, platforms, and interfaces to add interactivity and participation to narratives.
