IWKS 5350: Computational Foundations of Innovation
Graduate version of IWKS 2300. Introduces the technological underpinnings of modern society, introducing
the fundamental principles of computing. Students create realistic artifacts, and imbue those artifacts with
interesting behavior by writing computer programs in on-line virtual world similar to Second Life and for
simple Arduino-connected devices. In-class and in-world discussions and readings introduce important
computing ideas and concepts. Completion of this course will prepare students for more advanced IWKS
graduate courses that require knowledge of computing principles and practices.
