My experience in the Sheridan Interactive Multimedia class…

I loved the atmosphere in IMM class, it was a fun space where you can pick what you love, focus and work on it. The instructors were supportive to what you are doing. I learned a lot of programming knowledge from the course – because I love multimedia programming.

My classmates were friendly and helpful to me as an international student (it was my first visit to north America). I loved working with them in the lab and hanging out, they are all very cool people. Writing up this paragraph, I am missing my school life now.

I really loved the Toronto environment and Oakville’s community – air is clean, people are really friendly. It is a great place!

I always wanted to develop my computer skills. When I decided to come to Canada and take the Interactive Multimedia post graduated program at Sheridan College I had great expectations. Now, one year later, I can say my expectations were met. The teachers are high skilled professionals and they are always up to date with the new technologies on the market. The students come from all sorts of backgrounds and it makes a great learning environment. The class Infrastructure has the top technology on hardware and software. It is just the right place to learn about multimedia development.

I have no words to describe how happy I am to have made the decision to go to Sheridan and complete the Interactive Multimedia post graduate program! The different courses offered and the projects I got to work on were not only interesting but very fun and exciting! I will never forget all the great people I got to meet and spend so much time with 😉 And thanks to our knowledgeable mentors who taught us so much and motivated us every second! What a great experience!! 🙂

Interactive Multimedia at Sheridan College, Canada is a fascinating program with latest courses for today’s industry which will keep me updated with the trend. The always ready to help teachers, Dan, Andrew, and Ian make this program a success.

Sheridan is known for its reputation in Canada. I applied to two Ontario’s renowned colleges (Sheridan and Humber) and fortunately chosen by both. Even though Humber College was offering me $1000 scholarship, still I chose Sheridan College because even sitting away, half-way around the world I was familiar with Sheridan and its reputation.

Interactive multimedia is about learning how to code, producing visual design, editing and affecting video, making motion graphics, and creating interactive environments where you can control the interface or game without using any mouse or keyboard, but cameras by moving your body in front it. To know more about interactive environments you can visit my blog at http://imm-param.blogspot.com/ .

My classmates are from different backgrounds like graphic design, programming, engineering, photography, medical science, commerce, finance, etc. It makes me wow when I mix my design and programming skills together to produce the result.

I think Sheridan is the perfect choice for me and I think you will also love it doing the Sheridan way. Good luck with your applications!!!

OPPORTUNITY

We have had many companies asking for grads and in some cases we are hearing grumbles of not enough Flash developers, etc. And we are still accepting applications for this year! So now is your chance, if you are looking for an action packed, rewarding eight months to gain multimedia skills or update certain ones, please consider our program. We will be teaching Adobe CS3 with ActionScript 3 guaranteed for at least 3 years ;-). Of course our curriculum is set up to be platform independent but still it is nice to know that you are learning in a brand new environment.

Our program has so much to offer. We have dedicated, caring Professors – award winning in our industry and award winning grads. Our learning environment has resulted in amongst the highest KPI scores in the school (a way to measure student satisfaction). We encourage creativity and self expression. Students learn the skills but also explore why to use them and prepare for the future with pioneering mobile and gesture technologies. Our success in industry placement keeps growing and aiding future job placements. And graduates come out of the program with life long friends who have shared a challenging and wonderful experience.

SUMMER UPDATE – CHINA

Over the summer our Professors keep active. Dan Zen has visited China where he taught lesson at CAFA, China’s leading art school in Beijing. His lessons inspired new graduate projects in the areas of gesture interactivity in Flash and brought them practical tools for lip synching animations, mixing and affecting video etc.

SUMMER UPDATE – FACEBOOK APPLICATION

Dan Zen has also been working on a facebook application that takes all your friends and puts them in a party. The friends move around rooms with customizable backgrounds, talk to one another and have popularities. The application is slated to launch in September and is a Flash based visualization application integrated with the facebook application API. The Flash prototype front-end can be seen by clicking on the picture below – the data is sample data only.

SUMMER UPDATE – ACTIONSCRIPT 3.0

In preparing for CS3, of course he is reading Colin Moock’s ActionScript 3 book and has been building a sound and video visualization tool over the holidays that makes use of AS3’s native ability to capture sound frequencies! Finally! AS3 has a new architecture and runtime engine that allows it to run 10 times faster. And its Classes have been reorganized to split up the traditional MovieClip. To accomodate the changes, a more in-depth look at Object Oriented practices with Classes will be taught at the start of the school year rather than part way through the year.

Please ignore the date deadlines in the apply now section – but the sooner the better as the positions could fill up. Last year there were several very successful graduates who applied last moment so it definitely can work out.

In general, the Sheridan Interactive Multimedia program takes in designers and teaches them how to code – to make their designs work. IMM also takes in programmers and teaches them how to code and design in an interactive multimedia environment. Others interested are welcome to apply. Coding includes Flash ActionScript, PHP, XML, ASP, MySQL, JavaScript. There are also courses on XHTML, Graphics, Audio and Video and Project Management. We work with live client projects as well.

Our grads have been very successful in getting jobs as indicated in on our blog at https://interactivemultimedia.wordpress.com. The grads have also been successful winning graduate of the year awards in the two largest interactive media events – the Canadian New Media Awards and the FITC Design (Primarily Flash) Festival.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Designers Make Their Designs Move

July 4, 2004

Sheridan Interactive Multimedia offers a new course called “Motion Graphics”. The students use Flash to create animated interfaces, content and characters, designed to capture the viewer’s attention.

“Our students are traditionally 80% designers so they love this course” explains Andrew Smyk, Coordinator and Professor in the Interactive Multimedia Program. “It lets them show what they can do and balances the coding workload in the other courses.”

Graduates also combine the skills in Flash with those learned in Audio Visual to make movies of animated logos for instance. Final Samples are on CD and DVD but motion graphics is also integrated into Web sites. See:

http://imm.sheridanc.on.ca

The Sheridan one year post-grad Interactive Multimedia program combines programming and design to make games and puzzles; Web applications and tools; artistic and experimental work; and simulations for education and entertainment. Graduates can do everything from audio visual and motion graphics to database communications and multi-user applications.

Applications will be accepted until the end of the summer. Successful applicants are accepted on a first come first serve basis. Please contact imm@sheridanc.on.ca or visit http://imm.sheridanc.on.ca for information on how to apply to this exciting and ever-changing field.

Computer Programmers Explore Their Creative Side

June 22, 2004

“I learned how to program so that I could make tanker trailer weight distributions and learned about databases to build a patent renewal and billing system.” exclaims Dan Zen, Professor at Sheridan in the Interactive Multimedia Program.

“But then came the 1995 CD ROM, Understanding McLuhan, where all of a sudden I was controlling audio and video with my programming code and building games and e-learning environments to let people communicate. I found this a thousand times more interesting and varied. I know there are many programmers out there who will feel the same way.”

If you want to program the creative edge of content, Interactive Multimedia may be for you. If you are interested in designing environments in which people can make their own content and communicate with one another, then please visit our site to find out more.

Engineers Use Skills In Digital Environments

June 12, 2004

Engineer, Mad inventor and recent Canadian New Media Awards Programmer of the Year, Dan Zen, is a Professor at Sheridan in the Interactive Multimedia Program.

“Building interactive multimedia environments like games, gadgets, and tools is a lot like building physical inventions” states Dan Zen. “I have build hundreds of inventions and in 1995 I started building them for the Web. Instead of gears, I use programming loops, mechanical switches are replaced with interface buttons and so on.”

The ergonomics, design, physics, etc. that go into engineering decisions are also required in modelling and creating for interactive multimedia. Engineers are very inventive. Inginuity and creativity is a key for Canada to lead the world in the digital arena.

Engineers also have math and physics skills that are sought after in the visualization world both to work with motion graphics effects like elasticity in interface elements and to truly model environments in areas such as e-learning.

The Sheridan one year post-grad Interactive Multimedia program combines programming and design to make Web applications and tools; games and puzzles; artistic and experimental work; and simulations for education and entertainment. Graduates can do everything from audio visual and motion graphics to database communications and multi-user applications.

Applications will be accepted until the end of the summer. Successful applicants are accepted on a first come first serve basis. Please contact imm@sheridanc.on.ca or visit http://imm.sheridanc.on.ca for information on how to apply to this exciting and ever-changing field.

Apply now and extend your Engineering skills.
