    I'd like to go but I do not live anywhere near SF. Have you thought about taking this on the road?

    Maybe do this in New York, Atlanta, Chicago. Link up with local Universities that have technology studies types of departments.

    I've been researching it a bit - it's hard to know what the most receptive schools are in areas I'm unfamiliar with.

    If anyone happens to know of catalogs/directories of digital media schools, that might be a good way
    to bring the mobile class to different cities.

    Its also true that many schools seem to call this degree area by a different name and have different focus.

    In Atlanta, Georgia Tech has a master degree and PHD level degree program. I believe it is called Information Architecture. Anycase, my sister received a master degree from Tech and she studied a variety of things, video editing, Macromedia Director, web site publishing as well as classes in history of new media. I think they offered classes in most new media areas.

    I dont think there is a similar degree offered at any of the other Atlanta schools.

    I believe that Kent State, in Kent Ohio has a similar type of degree. Not sure if it is 2 year or master degree. These are the only two I am directly familiar with.

    I found and ordered this from Amazon last night:

    Gardner's Guide to Colleges for Multimedia and Animation, Fourth Edition

    Hi Nader,
    I'm a student at Columbia College-Chicago, and am enrolled in a program called Interactive Multimedia Studies, and I think that the director may be interested in having you come there to have a conf.?

    Also I am wondering where I can go w/my PDA, PALM, or mobile phone to acess content made with flash on the web? Can you give me some sites.
    Thank you,

    A good place to find mobile Flash pda content is:

    If you have a Pocket PC, you can download a game I made a while ago at:

    Lastly, I'd love to come to Chicago. Please email me via clicking on the profile button on this post.

    The exercises are split between being conceptual in nature as well as technical.

    They deal with:
    * UI Creation + Strategies
    * Font Usage
    * Code Testing
    * Debugging
    * Bitmap usage
    * Portfolio Creation

    A lot of the class is discussion based and we cover mobility as medium and how to design for it specifically.

    The level is beginner to intermediate.
