Soundslides Demo/Production (pdf)
- At the end of the lab, I want everyone’s Soundslides project file to be uploaded to the web. If you don’t have time to upload, then your project MUST be copied onto my thumb drive. It is your responsibility to give me your files.
- Sound file for proof-of-concept slideshow (download)
- The most important part of this exercise is to (1) demonstrate your photographic “eye” and (2) demonstrate a basic understanding of Soundslides.
How to publish your slideshow on the UW Dante server using FTP
- Your web server is dante.u.washington.edu
- In the “right” pane of the SFTP window, navigate to your public_html directory; create a new folder named com466 (lower case).
- In the “left” pane of the SFTP window, navigate to the STUDENT FILES directory and find your “red square” project folder. Drag-and-drop the “Publish_to_web” folder onto the com466 folder in the right pane.
- Rename “publish_to_web” “red_square” (note case and lack of spaces)
The link to your soundslides proof-of-concept project should be:
- Read: Ch 9 & 10 of Journalism 2.0, The problem with award-winning video journalism,
- Find three examples of web video news stories that you think are exemplary. Write a blog post that links to each example and explains your reasoning. Use the readings to support your arguments.
- Twitter assignment (follows, tweets)
