All across Penn College’s campuses, seniors in bachelor-degree majors have spent the past few weeks presenting their final projects as a precursor to commencement. Nine students in Denise S. Leete’s Web and Multimedia Senior Capstone course were no exception, recently detailing for classmates and faculty the web sites they designed for businesses and nonprofit organizations. The course provides the same interaction with clients that will be experienced in postgraduate employment, including the occasional pitfalls of dealing with the public and the unpredictability of technology. The School of Business and Computer Technologies’ web and interactive media lab allowed students to show the functionality of their pages, as well as PowerPoint presentations of what they learned in the process. Among those take-aways? Familiarity with a variety of design and content-management tools, flexibility with different web platforms, and the discipline to persevere through a mountain of challenges.
