HyperGLOB/Freedom: Preparing Student Designers for a New Media.
The HyperGLOB project introduced university-level graphic design students to interactive multimedia. This technology involves using the personal computer to display and manipulate a variety of electronic media simultaneously (combining elements of text and speech, music and sound, still images, motion video, and animated graphics) and allows viewers interactive control. The task of each student was to use interactive multimedia to document or express the concept of "freedom," whether personal, social, philosophical, political, or otherwise. The HyperGLOB project required students to work in a collective and collaborative mode, as well as individually. Each student established a hypermedia link between their individual stack and two stacks designed by others. The final result was a large network of convergent ideas. Design factors are discussed in light of their influence on interactivity, presentation structure, and educational objectives. Reproductions of computer screens provide partial examples of student projects. (Author/BEW)
