The Humber AdCentre was launched as a live lab to provide students with real work opportunities before entering the industry.
Instead of just being given just a grade for assignments, students are provided with a chance to work with real clients, on actual accounts, receiving first-hand experience in the field.
Working with established businesses will not only prepare students for the fast-paced excitement of the industry, but will also help develop portfolio work and reference points for interviews.
The Usability Lab is a new facility for students in the School of Media Studies & Information Technology at Humber College. This “Live Lab” is a full-fledged usability lab where content creators can capture & assess the interaction between user and design.
This Usability Lab is specialized, in that it was purposefully built for usability studies to ensure that the environment does not interfere with the testing. Designed with flexibility at its core, it has been equipped with a broad variety of technology, supporting usability testing at many different levels of sophistication.
What makes this lab unique is the fact that it is mobile. This one-of-a-kind usability lab can be delivered to those who wish to use and evaluate our designs, as well as their own. For our students, they can participate in, and lead experiments that will truly test the designs they have developed, to make sure they work in the manner they have been designed to work.
Canadians have registered 2.1 million dot-ca (.ca) domain names, an impressive achievement that reflects Canada’s position as one of the world’s most wired nations. Our program effectively addresses this trend by developing professionals able to create websites that respond to market and technology trends and support organizations’ corporate objectives.
Graduates find full-time and freelance employment as web developers in corporate, small and medium-sized businesses, government, entertainment, education, health-care and the not-for-profit sectors. Graduates work as web developers, creating websites and providing web services, and as advisors on web policies and strategic objectives. Some of our graduates will also establish their own freelance businesses.
