Headlines:<o:p></o:p>

  • DeVan:  Going through Wiki to find tutorials, changing the way it looks… identified things that needed to be migrated, etc.  Lorraine started a new project for the Clinton Global Initiative… weave ideas into DM for change class.<o:p></o:p>
  • Alan:  Wed, Pilar talked about storage issue… make a print out, something to reference, something on a blog or a wiki… to give options and give students options for their own storage… <o:p></o:p>
    • “flash drive will give you this much space, external hard drive will give you x…, etc.”<o:p></o:p>
    • Facilitate students getting their own storage devices<o:p></o:p>
  • Pilar:  Two highlights….the workshop went well (digital imaging)<o:p></o:p>
    • Idea:  A weekend long bootcamp style video editing workshop like the storytelling workshop, etc?<o:p></o:p>
    • Creativity and innovation class made some videos and was rewarding… Pilar has a copy of a video that Adam Rumack made.<o:p></o:p>

    • Had 12 people at the workshop.<o:p></o:p>
    • Jeremy used gimp to make logo for his running team’s shirts for the mud run.  <o:p></o:p>
  • Ryan:  Storytelling workshop, notebook full of notes would like to type or scan in.  Lots ot good tips on storytelling, wants to incorporate what learned into my current project.  Have a focus, storyboard, need to stick to key points, learning process, still working with Morita- trying to incorporate knowledge into the video.  Big take aways--- have tension in the story, “the bomb event” how the character changes after that, be more visual-show versus tell.  Sizzle vs. Inconvenient truth Arouse vs. fullfil.  Set up acts 1. Set up world 2. Change  3.  <o:p></o:p>
    • “This American Life” uses examples of bringing in policy material to a broader audience.<o:p></o:p>
  • Molly:  Got two podcasts up on iTunes U.  Troubleshooting with GarageBand… locking tracks and jingles… too many tracks created a stuttering on her voice.<o:p></o:p>
    • Had interesting idea for digital notebooks all offline.. Pilar had a good idea to use Pages to incorporate papers so that material isn’t online.  Wants to give the portfolio to a professor on a CD.  Idea is to have a portfolio much like a magazine layout.  Using iDVD to show more multimedia focused portfolios.<o:p></o:p>
  • Bob:  Met with Ann Flower on Tuesday for an informal conversation and is really excited about “how to rock the library”.  <o:p></o:p>
    • Focus group to rethink the library’s role… TLC and the library?<o:p></o:p>
    • Using sms to communicate and doesn’t have to be geographically loved down in a space near the printers…<o:p></o:p>
    • Wants to have a conversation about research, how people research and how they can do it better?  Formal vs. informal reseach… <o:p></o:p>

Notes:<o:p></o:p>

  • Priority for today is storage and iMovie getting wiped out!<o:p></o:p>
  • iMovie workshop next week… helpful to tell people where to store their projects.<o:p></o:p>
    • We need to have all computers be able to access the network for video 2 but folder has been faulty.<o:p></o:p>
  • What is the best solution?<o:p></o:p>
    • DeVan:  Explain the complication with iMovie 08 and 09 and external storage….<o:p></o:p>
      • Involves the purchase of an external drive.<o:p></o:p>
      • iMovie 09 can save projects to an external drive as long as it’s formatted in MacOS.<o:p></o:p>
      • Project and library can be saved on external…. The “event”.<o:p></o:p>
      • Problem:  When people don’t have an external drive.<o:p></o:p>
        • When logged out of guest account, all project files are deleted.<o:p></o:p>
        • Do we want to have people’s files saved?<o:p></o:p>
        • Maintenance issue?  Machines getting bogged down with too many extra files.<o:p></o:p>
      • Alan:  Discusses with Pilar… a few flash drives to loan out as a last resort and giving people.  <o:p></o:p>
      • Can we create an account that doesn’t wipe out certain things? <o:p></o:p>
        • Without additional software, how to do the auto-restore<o:p></o:p>
        • Make an account that is a guest account with parental control<o:p></o:p>
        • Short-term solution is to have a new guest account.<o:p></o:p>
          • Put a limit of a month on the project and then after the month, the project will be wiped out.. <o:p></o:p>
          • How do we log projects?  Can we follow-up?<o:p></o:p>
          • Check to see when project was last modified?<o:p></o:p>

      • Video projects will be tied to one specific computer… create a 2-hr reservation system and bump people off machines? <o:p></o:p>

      • Talking to students and faculty about building in storage into the cost of school and explaining that media is large..<o:p></o:p>
      • We need to work toward a network solution<o:p></o:p>

    • A step-by-step Google doc will be written so that we all know how the storage system works.<o:p></o:p>
