In the winter 2013 semester Andrew Smith will be teaching these two courses, and here's his schedule:
The office number is T2096, please send me an email if you would like to meet and discuss anything: andrew.smith at senecac.on.ca
Textbook & Resources
The textbook for both courses is required, it is: Multimedia: Making It Work, Eighth Edition, Tay Vaughan, McGraw Hill, ISBN 978-0-07-174846-9
Also a number of online resources and free software will be used, these are listed in the weekly program.
Somewhat out of date outlines:
There is no exam in this course, and only one test. That means most of your marks will come from labs and assignments. If you want to do well in the course: come to all the labs. Not only will that get you 20% of the final grade but it will prepare you for the assignments.
Besides, you're here to learn, not just to get grades, right?
|Ten labs||Ten labs||20%|
|Two quizzes||Two quizzes||10%|
|One test||One test||25%|
|Three assignments||Three assignments||45%|
Labs are due on friday at 23:00. Late submissions will not be accepted unless you have a doctor's note.
Your grades will be recorded in Moodle
