Topics Due This Saturday (July 18)

Please note that your presentation and project topics will be due this Saturday. Topics can be anything your group decides for example, your topic may be about the environment, tourism, food, culture, etc. For the project, you will need to choose a specific communication technology to deliver your topic. For example, you may want to explain about African culture through the use of a video which includes dances, arts, and others.

The presentation should cover the following:

- Your topic
- Why you chose the topic and what project you will be working on
- Your rational for choosing a specific communication technology to deliver the topic
- Information about the communication technology you will be using

Here is a brief example on what you should be preparing:

You would like to promote on living a healthy lifestyle through exercise.
You want to chose video as a medium of choice to communicate your message.

Presentation: Present your topic and how your group will work on a video project to promote a healthy lifestyle through exercise.
Present the methods on doing exercises and sports which you will present in your video. Explain why you chose video to promote your topic. Explain the fundamentals of video technology as a communication tool.

Project: Turn in the video project.

Research Paper: Write about video technology as an effective (or non-effective) communication tool and the steps required to prepare a video project. Do not talk about your topic (healthy lifestyle through exercise) in this paper unless you are making certain references to prove a point.

I hope this is clear. If not, we can discuss this further in class.

Change of Classroom to FKBM 1.4

As of today (7/7/2009) I noticed there are 30 students enrolled for this class, and more may be coming. I believe that our current classroom; FKBM 1.2 will not be enough for a class this size, so starting this Saturday, we will conduct classes in FKBM 1.4. Please take note of the new venue.
