02/28/2006 - Multimedia Class Seeks Project Clients

Multimedia Design and Implementation, a class taught at Eastern Washington University’s (EWU) Riverpoint Campus, is seeking clients for student projects for Spring Quarter. The client will be a non-profit organization with a multimedia project need. According to computer science professor Linda Kieffer, PhD, the project might be a Web site, an electronic brochure, or anything using multimedia that is sufficiently complex to challenge the students. The non-profit client must have a clear understanding of their purpose and what they want to accomplish. They must have ownership or copyright clearance for any material they submit for inclusion. The client will receive a Web site that is ready to mount on the client’s server, or a CD or DVD.

The students in Multimedia Design and Implementation (CSCD 419) are senior level students, who will form teams to carry out the projects. Each team will include at least one designer and one programmer. They will follow a formal multimedia software engineering process as their approach to projects. The number of projects will depend on the number of students in the class. At the end of the quarter, all clients will be invited to view all of the student projects, according to Kieffer.

CSCD 419 uses Macromedia Director as its basic tool. Students also use a variety of other tools. “Selecting the correct tool is part of software development,” says Kieffer. The students will take photographs or video as needed, record sound, create graphics, and do the programming. There is no charge to the client.

Previous clients include: First Night, Spokane, Cup of Cool Water, Guide Dogs, the children’s museum, the Alzheimer’s organization, Spokane AID’s Network, Pathways to Change, and St Luke’s Rehabilitation.

EWU’s spring quarter begins Monday, April 3. The course is taught in the SIRTI building on the Riverpoint Campus from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Non-profits with projects are asked to get in touch with Dr. Linda Kieffer at (509) 359 - 7093 or e-mail

Registration is now open for students who are interested in taking CSCD 419. Participants are not required to be computer science major students, but will need a solid multimedia background. Interested students should also contact Kieffer.
