It’s a web-based world.

The internet is where we go to inform and entertain ourselves. In the CIW/Coding, App and Game Design class, you will learn how to create websites that include multimedia and interactive games.

In this two year program, first and second year students work together in teams to develop real projects. Second year students act as project leaders, directing the work and supervising their teams. The environment is designed to make the experience realistically reflect project management in the web design and game development industry. Students learn team building and interpersonal skills to prepare them for leadeship roles in their careers. Why just learn how to do the work when you can train to be the boss?

A portfolio is an important tool for getting into a college program or landing a job in this field. Our students develop a web portfolio to showcase the work they do on both gaming and web design projects.

I am very glad I took the Web Deisgn (CIW) and Game Development class at James Rumsey, because I learned a lot of new things and found my passion for working with computers and coding. My teacher was great. He didn’t lecture every day. He told us what was expected of us, and we learned by trial and error. Being in the Web and Game Development class was a great experience, and I would recommend that anyone with a love for technology and wanting to learn how to code and see the unknown side of games and web pages, to take this class.
