Each class will be divided in two sections: lecture/discussion and workshop.
Lecture/Discussion time will serve to study the web as a medium from historical, comparative, design, and experimental angles.
Introduction of new techniques, and the technical nuances encountered during the implementation of assignments will be explored during workshop time.
