Interactive Media Production is an advanced certificate program. It provides the skills needed to be proficient in developing content using rich media tools.
Building on the skills you developed in the New Media Communications Certificate Program (in Prince Albert and Regina), you will learn how to build sophisticated media in a standalone configuration and integrated with server-side processes.
You will learn how to script in Flash, develop interactive CD-ROMs, author DVDs and develop material using content management systems and electronic learning environments. A research course will provide you with an opportunity to explore emerging technologies (such as wireless delivery to cell phones and PDAs).
Individuals who plan to take at least one more of the advanced certificates in this area (shown below), in addition to Interactive Media Production, may wish to consider applying directly to the New Media Communications diploma program.
Graduates are prepared for employment as interactive media developers who have a clear understanding of the recent advances in technology and know how to design and develop dynamic and interactive content for CD-ROMs, DVDs, electronic learning environments and cutting edge technologies (such as cell phones and PDAs).
Some online programs include on-site labs, clinicals, practicums or work experiences. Online programs may be offered course-by-course or full-time, or both, and deliveries may change over time.

The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake.
Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year.
Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.
See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
Note: Courses are delivered online. A combination of Internet-based resources, videos, class discussions, text-based chat sessions, and peer critiques may be used. Your instructor will provide guidance, help, and timely feedback.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic recognizes that adults learn in many different ways and through many different means. This includes acquiring knowledge and skills through life and work experience or non-formal training.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and alumni, Saskatchewan Polytechnic gives away more than $2 million in student awards during the academic year.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers student awards for every certificate and diploma program at every campus. You don't have to be a brainiac to receive a student award. Not all student awards are based on marks - some are based on financial need or things like community or volunteer involvement.
