Week 1 – Summer 2017

Welcome to COM210: Multimedia Content Creation! This can be a challenging course, but most students who leave plenty of time for assignments say that it’s a fun one. I’m your professor, and if you have not yet introduced yourself, please send me an email (found on the About page).

During Week 1, we get started right away with a lot of information and the first assignment. You can always find my contact information on the course About page.

A couple of things I want you to know about COM210:

1. Your are your own best advocate. Online courses take a lot of initiative. Because of that, be prepared to speak up when you need something and be in communication with me and your class members. There are not as many students as in the regular school year, but enough to keep me busy, so keep me updated!

2. This class is not easy. You should definitely ask for help if you’re struggling, but this course is designed to give you hands-on problem-solving experience, which means it takes time. If you block out that time in your schedule now, you’ll get much more from the course than if you try to rush before deadlines.

3. This class has been substantially revised. The overall structure and learning goals remain the same, but many details have changed. If you have taken this course before or heard about it from other students, be careful to go through this semester’s materials and avoid making assumptions.

Week 1 To-Do List

❑ Make sure you are receiving COM210 emails
❑ Read the course syllabus and take the Syllabus Quiz
❑ Review the Course Schedule
❑ Complete all readings and assignments listed for Week 1
