Audio education for students who major in filmmaking, video production, visual media practice, or visual communication design in universities' bachelor-degree programs usually starts with creating and improving awareness for sound both in general and, also, in relation to visual media as well. In addition to that, since these students utilize recording and mixing only as a part of their professional practice, not as their main field of specialty, teaching the technical concepts and aesthetics to them requires making use of different content and approach than to those who intend to become audio specialists. This paper discusses these issues by using COMD 361 Sound Design course at Bilkent University, Department of Communication and Design, as a case study.
