Applied Communications Students Create DWC Media House Mobile Application

3 years

Three Corporate Communication students in the Applied Communications Programme at the HCT-Dubai Women’s College (DWC) have created the college’s first mobile Application to promote students’ media productions.

The ‘DWC Media House’ is the first Application that showcases creative media work produced by DWC Applied Communications students.

It was designed by Hessa Abdulla, Reeham Ibrahim and Nawal Ahmed as part of a Corporate Communication course project and heavily reinforces the Learning by Doing educational approach of the Higher Colleges of Technology implemented in all its courses.

The App introduces students’ work in five different categories: Photography, Journalism, Art, Video Production and Corporate Communication.

Sponsored by the Faculty of Applied Communications, the DWC Media House Application gives access to Android and Apple users to view students’ work. It is a free Application that will be updated regularly to showcase a variety of students’ works.

“The Application came to be the first of its kind among other departments in HCT. With a rapid change in technology, Apps are the new channel to reach the outside world,” said Nada Al Tahir, Applied Communications Department Chair.
