InDesign DPS publication for iPads: Introducing an eBook Elective into tertiary Graphic Design
This project trials the introduction of an eBook elective in the Graphic Design course at AUT University, and addresses a growing need to apply good design principles across both print and digital publishing environments. Multimodality is becoming a vital skill throughout tertiary education, and it is crucial to an art and design and to a teritary institute that prides itself on its ability to produce industry-prepared students, and informed and capable staff.
Graphic Design and 21st Century Bookworks: Implementing multimodal strategies to complement traditional book formats
The aim of this project is to enhance digital literacy and integrate mobile technologies into the Graphic Design courses at AUT University. Traditionally these courses have involved designing books for print, and binding books by hand. This project explores how old and new technologies might be utilised in the creation of multimodal books that combine the best aspects of printed limited edition and handmade books with the enhanced communication and reading potential of epublications.
