Abstract:This paper is a description of the development of a university level curriculum integrating technology to produce a progressive interior design undergraduate program. This program will require students to have computer literacy, writing and drawing skills, knowledge of the global environment and sustainability, digital presentation and document production. It will integrate multimedia and computer-aided design technologies into a traditional design baccalaureate program that would meet national accreditation standards from the Foundation of Interior Design Education Research (FIDER). The delivery method is online. It is intended to serve the global marketplace. This program will accurately portray the current practice of interior design, preparing students for the practice in architectural and interior design firms. The entry-level courses are delivered through a website, in an asynchronous manner following a traditional college semester system. Both high-achieving and lowachieving students will have the guidance to meet the basic objectives of the course. Advantages of this technology include access to international and rural students; an increased level of communication visuals through audio, video, film and animation; increased emphasis of technology within the design profession; a better understanding of visual spatial skills leading to heightened global design and a closer relationship of education to the practice of interior design.
