VANCOUVER – February 5th, 2013 – 19 students and two faculty members from the Communication University of China (CUC) were welcomed to the Centre for Digital Media yesterday for the kick off of the 2013 IDEA-X Program. IDEA-X, a four-week digital media boot camp, teaches students the fundamentals of collaborative design and rapid prototyping while helping them improve their English language proficiency, with special emphasis on the vocabulary of the digital media industry. The program, in its third offering, has been a useful jumping off point for students. Since its inception, five students have joined the Centre for Digital Media, two have successfully earned their Master of Digital Media, three in process, and one is currently pursuing her PhD from SFU.
