COM466 – University of Washington

First Audio Assignment

These are the files from Wednesday’s lab:

Upload to your audio file to your Dropbox public folder and email me the link. Name the file like this: “yourFirstName-first-audio.mp3”. No Spaces in the file name! Put “COM466 First Audio Story” in the subject line.


Here we go: 10/23 students did not do the assignment and 3/23 have not provided a working link. Thus there are only 10 students who have successfully edited and uploaded a sound file.

Several students failed to use the correct subject line; for future assignments, failure to use the correct subject line = failure to complete assignment (no points). The consistent subject line allows me to filter mail; without it, your email is lost in “noise.”

Several students failed to use the right file name; for future assignments, failure to use the correct file name = failure to complete assignment (no points). The consistent file name allows me to identify your assignments when they are downloaded onto my hard drive. The file names are designed to help you learn good file name technique for web files.

Three students filed to provide a public link to the dropbox file. One of the goals of the lab was to help you if you had questions about Dropbox. I subsequently sent email to the class list and to individual students but have not received a corrected link.

Note: if your email contains only a link – no text – the odds are very high that the UW spam filter will kick in and it will be shuttled to “trash”.
