And just like that, we find ourselves at the end of our time together. There’s just two more things you have to complete in order to wrap up our class–and one of them is in two parts. Please read the below instructions carefully and if you have any questions, ask them as a comment to this post.
1. DIGITAL HISTORIES
Your Digital History assignments are due by Friday, December 4 at 11:00 p.m. (Pacific). The film should begin with some version of the language I used in my sample film; include “credits” for your sources; and avoid the use of any copyrighted music.
Completing and turning in this assignment means doing two things:
a. Submitting the Movie
Turn in your movie as a movie .mov, .mpeg4, .mp4, .avi, or .wmv file. You can try to turn in your movie to Sakai but it’s likely the file size will be too big for the “dropbox” function. If that’s the case, you will need to use a file sharing system (Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, MS OneDrive, or the like) to share the movie file with me. Whatever solution you choose, make sure you give me permission to download the file. Email the link to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
b. Submitting your Metadata
I will upload your movie to the YouTube channel for the Intercollegiate Department of Chicanx-Latinx Studies. To do that, I need you to provide me the metadata for your film. You do that by filling out the following form after you have turned in your movie file.
2. FINAL FLIPGRID
Your very last assignment is a reflection assignment which you will submit via Flipgrid. The link to our last Flipgrid assignment can be found here. Again, it is due no later than Friday, December 4 at 11:00 p.m. (Pacific). And, as with our last Flipgrid, you will be able to record and submit your video but it will only become visible by my action. Accordingly, this final Flipgrid requires no engagement with your classmates.
Once you turn in your movie file, complete the metadata online form, and submit your reflection response to Flipgrid, you’re done! Have a wonderful break as you celebrate your achievements and recharge for the semester ahead. Be safe and be well…
