Courses by Chris

In the Web Game Design class, students are going to learn how to create some simple games right in their web browser. This is a programming-centric class, meaning the students will be writing (typing) code to make things happen. The course will cover topics including starting a JavaScript game, handling images and sound effects, input fields, 2D frame animation, virtual worlds, and much more. The student must be familiar with the day-to-day use of a computer before taking this course.
