Create your own Graphical User Interface (GUI) will introduce students to GUIs, and present industry design standards while teaching students how to use ActionScript to program their own animated interfaces. At the end of this course students will be able to create and animate their own GUIs and will understand action scripting in a way that will allow them to create a diverse range of animations and web applications, preparing them for future pathways in game design and interactive media.
