Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning
Interactive Multimedia Spring Open House 2003

Forty students have spent a four month term forming fresh ideas into fantastic interactive features to be displayed on SMART board touch projection screens. The IMM open house is near and as eagerly awaited as spring.

Thursday, April 10, 2003
12 PM to 7 PM
Rooms S138 and S139
SCAET, Sheridan Oakville Campus
1430 Trafalgar Road – Cerimonial RoadClient projects and personal portfolios will be presented with interactive slideshows that in themselves exemplify the dynamic site environments created by our post-grad students. You can actually use their slideshow tool to create your own interactive slideshows.

A premiere of a collaborative site called STRINGLE will demonstrate advanced work in text manipulation leading uses such as production parsing and artificial intelligence. Speaking of artificial intelligence, all portfolios will have Flash guides connected to databases for communication. Communication is a key focus of this final term with the creation of interactive environments through the Director Multi-user Engine and the just released Flash Communication Server for real-time interaction and video streaming.

Flash For Mobile Devices
