Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!! I never got that out here… My 485 rough draft is done and turned in. Don’t worry, I did it Monday, but didn’t feel the need to update everyone until now. And only now since I am giving a project update anyway. So it’s done. Hopefully Dr. Hudgins doesn’t make me change anything for the final. How great would that be?!
I was able to spend tonight working on the alumni project stuff. So here’s a real quick list: First, I made a little filmstrip graphic thing for the homepage. What do you guys think of it??? Sometimes, it hurts my eyes and gives me a headache. And, is it too gimmicky?
I also added the Create Commons stuff, like we had talked about during class on last Thursday. I put it on the bottom of each page.
On the profile pages, I created a better way to display all the links. We had too many videos to put where the used to be on the right side of the page. I think it looks okay, but does it really?? I also put the time of each video next to the link. I think that is helpful.
I still need to do an about us page. And there are still a few gaps in the profiles.
As for the groooooup, the To-Do list much the same as last week:
– look at the site and send me any edits/additions
– If you haven’t yet, write a blurb about yourself: who you are/describe some of what you did for the project
– put transcripts of interviews, questionnaire sheets up on Omeka.
– upload all videos to youtube
– interviews left to edit
– t-line issues
– Bullet uploads
We have a meeting tomorrow tonight (6 pm in Monroe, if anybody else is interested in attending), so hopefully some of that stuff will be addressed tomorrow.
ps: this is a pretty bad post.
