Welcome to the usual weekly collection of dot points about what the labs will involve. Key things this week are to ensure that everyone is now OK with video online, but then also understands the reasons why it is important to be able to get that video out of whatever system it is in. (Why is this important?)
To Be Done In Class
- table (small group) based critiques of the second video task
- If not already done so, form your project team for the first assignment, you will work together on weekly tasks and the online interactive project
- What are your responsibilities for this first task? Who are these responsibilities to?
- What problems or questions do you have about this project? - Discuss
- What questions do you have about the weekly tasks? Work through these.
- Install Korsakow, and our first overview of what, how, where of Korsakow
- I've provided a library of clips to play with if you want some material
