Materials

You cannot complete this class without reliable access to Internet and Dreamweaver CS5.5. Most online students have Dreamweaver installed on their home computer, but some use campus computers. See Collegebuys.org, Gradware.com, or campustech.com for academic prices.    Collegebuys.org sells Dreamweaver CS5.5 for $125. Adobe has bundles that include Dreamweaver, Fireworks (Web graphics), Photoshop and Flash (animation).  We will use Fireworks or Photoshop for a few projects so you can either purchase them, use one of our labs on campus, or use the free 30-day trial from Adobe.

Some students are able to complete the course using old versions of Dreamweaver. This can be confusing. If you choose to use an old version, you are responsible for finding learning materials.

Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Photoshop are available on 4 Macs and 4 PC's in the E building Open Lab. You may also use Graphic Design Labs and CIS labs during open hours. Tutoring is available in the Graphic Design labs. Hours are posted on the doors.
