About Digital Media: Interactive Multimedia

The demand for individuals with multimedia design skills to produce rich media content is growing, since more and more businesses and companies are hiring designers to create rich media content for employee training, on Web sites for sales and promotion, and for information and presentations.

These positions are found not only in Web design companies, but also in brick and mortar companies of all kinds that need people who can produce in house the kinds of CDs, videos, sales and promotional and employee training rich media content that are rapidly becoming the standard in industry.

Regardless of whether the trend is to outsource or produce in house the rich media content required to develop presentations of all types, most companies are developing content non-textually to meet 21st century information needs.

***With the inclusion of general education classes, you can receive an Associates Degree in addition to the certificate.
