computer architectures, operating systems, and computer systems
management. Includes data representation, memory, registers, and
internals of common computers and user system interfaces. Knowledge of
C/C programming helpful but not mandatory.

media. Includes designing, creating, and editing electronic images,
sounds, videos, text, and motion. Integrates multimedia authoring to
design, manage, and execute a multimedia project.
This is a project from CST 221
I unfortunately lost all of my information from this class on the
server switch, therefore, I will show even better work that I have
done. It is the same website as CST 221. It also pertains to using all
different sorts of multimedia.
C3-ProgrammingCST 221- Programming: Scripting for Multimedia
learn Flash Action Scripting and apply solid programming techniques to
create dynamic multimedia content. Students learn the fundamental
concepts of Object Oriented Programming plus designing, coding,
testing, debugging, and documenting of computer programs. Using Flash
Action Scripting, students apply those concepts to create programs
utilizing digital media, including images, animation, audio, video and
text. This is a laboratory class using Windows or Macintosh computers.
Website for actionscripting in Flash
Different exercises and assignments written in Macromedia Flash. You will need Flash player to see this website.
Service Learning (upper division)CST 361S-Tech Tutors
service learning course in which students apply computer literacy,
multimedia design, and technology to assist schools, nonprofit
organizations, and community agencies. The theme for the course is
"Bridging the Digital Divide." Note: students must participate in
required service placements with hours to be arranged.
Website for PSI, Watsonville
This is the website of my experience with PSI and explanation of what I did and a little about the organization.
My CSUMB Learning Experience
my student career here at CSUMB, I have been studying multimedia, from
interactive websites to print layout. In my journey through college, I
found that CSUMB is not like other colleges because of it\'s vision of
helping the community and integrated every course with the next. Even
during my general education, I found that the classes connect to my
major, Telecommunications, Multimedia, and Applied Computing.
also think this experience has been a unique one because you are
allowed to chose what courses to take and when you want to take them.
The classes aren\'t preassembled like in a traditional college. I was
able to take courses at my own pace, and that was very helpful in
learning to my fullest capacity.
a person, I have changed quite a bit since I started in fall of 1999. I
believe I am much more culturally aware as well as more industry aware.
I could have never learned it on my own. I now know the design,
computer, and media lingo for my career. Which will assist me during
job interviews or if I free-lance, it will help me understand partners
or clients better.
Ihave learned many new things, to name a few;
have learned different types of software, including Macromedia Flash,
Dreamweaver, and Fireworks also Adobe photoshop, illustrator, and image
-I have learned the system and steps of creating a website.
-I understand color theory and grid theory and can successfully apply it to my designs.
-I understand optimizing images and creating smaller files for the web.
-I know how to construct a proposal as well as use technical writing when doing so.
-I have learned a great deal about how computers function and many terms that are used frequently in the computer business.
have also learned how to work in a team and provide and recieve
constructive critisim. (which I think is hard for some people to
understand and accept).
in all, I believe CSUMB is different from other schools because they
allow the students to get practical "real-world" experience through
working with the community and having professors, who themselves, were
professionals in the careers they are teaching. While working on my
capstone, I have learned priceless things, such as, how to manage a
project completely on my own and produce a beautiful, professional
website that was thought of and produced by me. In this society, you
don\'t get many opportunities like this and I am very proud to say that
I attended CSUMB and graduated from here.

C4-TelecommunicationsCST 310-Telecommunications and Society
of Telecommunications and Data communications technology for the
non-specialist. Includes basic communications technology principles and
types of networks, historical trends, existing and emerging
technologies, social and economic impact, future trends.
Quiz on different types of telecommunication
The red portions are my answers.
C5-MathematicsMATH 170-Discreet Mathematics
sets and sequences, elementary logic, relations, induction, counting
principles, discrete probability, Boolean algebra, logic networks,
matrices, graph theory, and trees. Applies these topics to real life
and branches of science, particularly computer science.
C6- Social and Ethical DimensionsCST 371-Ethics in Communication and Technology
through an ethical perspective how communication technology affects our
lives. Discusses individual and institutional values represented
through technological choices. Using case studies and current events,
explores such issues as intellectual property rights, information
access and privacy, and the digital divide.
This is a paper that I wrote in reflection to the computer world and how it has drastically changed our lives.
DESIGN Major Learning Outcomes

formal and informal design processes. Covers multimedia production,
project management, budgets, and legal and contractual issues.
Unfortunately, this was also lost to the server change. As a class we
broke into groups and focused on one part of the Monterey Bay e-quarium
website. We did an indepth proposal on the open ocean aspect of the
aquarium and presented it to actual aquarium employees. The link here
is showing my "Cap-Lite" proposal from my Major Proseminar Course, to
show that I do understand and can produce a technically written
D2-D3-Intermediate (Interactive Media, Communication through a Variety of Electronic Delivery Systems)CST 321-Multimedia I

create multimedia documents using computer-based authoring tools.
Includes project management and production, and asset management of
images, text, sound, animation, and computer code.
Website for "The Brief History of Type"
Sounds boring but please visit. I think you will enjoy the animation. This was the final production.
This is the proposal that I wrote for "The Brief History of Type" project.
D2-D3 Practicum(Interactive Media, Communication through a Variety of Electronic Delivery Systems)CST 421-Multimedia II
the development of interactive multimedia design and production through
collaborative projects with clients. Emphasizes multimedia design and
