Digital Media Art is a highly practical subject. The students trained should have the ability of knowledge application, practical operation, teamwork, and lifelong learning. They should have the ability to hard work and a strong sense of responsibility in terms of personal qualities. The application of project-based learning in the course of digital media art can better train students' abilities in these aspects.
