I have one more class for those who are interested:

ART 258 Interface Programming 2 TR 10:45AM-1:15PM
Introduces Flash's programming language ActionScript via projects that combine interactivity and animation. Students will learn basic computer programming techniques used to add interactivity to rich media and web-based applications.

NOTE: This course can also be run as a hybrid online course - meeting in-person once a week on Tuesdays, and then the rest is done online using the UH Sakai-based course management tool Laulima.

Again, if anyone is interested, or knows of someone who may be interested, please have them contact me, Chris Gargiulo (gargiulo [at] hawaii.edu) with a resume/CV, samples of personal work, and if possible samples of student work.
