What an experience.........
I think I'm gonna cry....

Made up my Mind

posted Jul 17, 2009, 3:39 AM by Unknown user   [ updated Jul 17, 2009, 5:43 AM by Eddie Woo ]

I have deleted "Music Inform" as I do not have the resources at this point in time to make it a worthwhile venture. The subpage "Year 9 and 10 materials" still exists as I am thinking of the future, when future students of JRAHS upload more recent documents and information. The "Mini-Biographies" that were meant to link to other subpages are no longer purposed for that.
"Photos 2", a page that I was experiencing difficulty with due to the error, "Unable to save the page at this time, please try again later" has now been deleted and recreated. The heading being created with "New Facebook" by prask as always and images being uploaded from recent musical events that have occured at JRAHS.
For numerical data for my mini-assignment I have created a subpage called, "The Statistics" which conveys numerical data about chorus members, principals and some ratings from peers in Year 10.
It is not the most effective way of using numerical data, but taking into account the availability of resources and time constraints, this was the best I can do.

The future of Music subpages.

The concept of "Music Inform" and "TEACHERS" biographies  and "Year 9 and 10 materials" may have to be scrapped at this point in time as I have not been given the required information.
"Music Inform" seems rather pointles if all I can do is link a yearly school calender to it.
I will update as soon as I make up my mind.

A major register

DESIGN DECISIONS AND CREATION OF CONTENT
I was experiencing a lot of difficulty in regards to the image medium for the mini-assignment, this was mainly because there were a lot of images and composing them on just one subpage was neither aesthically pleasing nor making the process of navigation easier. This is why I opted for a two pages of images that both linked to a central page, called "Musical 2009 Gallery". The process of choosing images that would make the cut to be seen on the Intranet was not an easy task, choosing around 25 from over a 100.
The structure of the page, "Musical 2009 Gallery" is cosistent with the rest of the Major assignment and mini-assignemnt. Image that was used was once again derived from creativecommons.org.
The subpage of "Musical Information" was in pretty bad shape before I altered it, the links led to nowhere and an error would appear everytime I tried to save my changes. I decided to delete the page and start a new one, a clean slate. I then linked words to documents that were saved in .jpg format and derived from "The Merry Widow" brochure. Within this subpage I also chose to have a sub-heading called "Useful Links" that had links to other websites about The Merry Widow, this was a way of allowing end users to become more informed about the Musical's synopsis.
To use the medium of hyperlink in a more quirky way as well on my mini-assignment, on some pages I would link words to WIkipedia so that they could understand it better, for instance on the subpage "Principal Opinion" the word "grisette" is linked.
I created more content on the main page of my mini-assignment, in the textbox I added "The Merry Widow" which links to Wikipedia. I was unable to get a synopsis or overview of the Musical by the Music faculty so I ended up opting for a link.
 
NO RESPONSE FROM MR. WONG
I am quite upset that I have not been sent any information or attachments from Mr. Wong who said that through email, he would send me material that I could put on the Music Faculty Weboage regarding Year 9-10, a Connected Learning assignment for Year 9. As well as short biographies on the Music Teachers, I also asked for any Musical multimedia but this was not delivered either.
 
DVD and AUDIO PROBLEMS
Through conversation with Blair Wang, a solution occured to my problems with uploading the contents of the Musical DVD that was given to me by the Music Teachers, he said that he knew how I could put it up. So we devised a plan to meet up and do this BUT I then remembered tne conversation I had had with Mr. Yeo who said that I could not embed his already uploaded Musical YouTube files on as the school had not purchased some type of copyright. What I was planning to do was the same thing, I was going to put up video on YouTube that th school had not bought copyright for, therefore the situation was the same and I could not upload the Musical, which is a real bummer.
The audio file that I uploaded onto Woo Random Files a few days ago needed to be converted to .mp3 and it had not been converted before 12pm today. Last night while once again in conversation with Blair Wang I told him this fact and he taught me how to convert the file to .mp3 using iTunes, it was a very easy process so I ended up doing it myself. I uploaded the file onto the Music Faculty main page and whenever I tried to click on it, it would get stuck after a few seconds but I dod not get worried because I believe that it waould just be my computer as it is old and the QuickTime version was also old. Yet Mr. Woo did convert the file at around 12pm today and to be on the safe side, I deleted the previous attachment and added Mr. Woo's. The weird thing is that when I clicked on Mr. Woo's converted file, the whole audio worked without a glitch.
Maybe it just wasn't my computer.
 
COMMUNICATIONS WITH SYSTEM USERS OR PARTICIPANTS
Within the last few days, conversation with members of the apocalitpticDESIGN team has increased, especially with Blair Wang, Jason Ko and Komal Shah.
Komal created the textual recount of the Musical, Jason helped through the process of Support Documentation as we were both simultaneously doing it and were on MSN. Blair has helped me attach and convert audio files as well as answer queries about the Fuel for Project Registers task.
THANKS GUYS!!!!!
 
UPDATES TO THE PROJECT TIMELINE
Upon reflection, the Gantt Chart could not have been further from the truth, the organised outlook of the Gantt Chart never occured due to continuous interruption such as Exams and the Japan trip. A requirement of the Support Documentation for the mini-assignment was to update the Gantt Chart to include the Extension as well as the mini-assignment. This aspect of the Gantt Ghart is absolutely true as it is updated after the mini-assignment is finished, hence the dates when things commence and conclude are known for sure.

Design specifications

Here is my final document for the design specifications aspect of Component 3B - Support Documentation

H6.1: Based on your answer to the H4.1 question, propose a solution for the 2010 apocalipticDesign team to develop and implement next year.

posted Jul 16, 2009, 4:11 AM by Unknown user   [ updated Jul 16, 2009, 4:29 AM by Eddie Woo ]

The 2010 apocalipticDESIGN team should collaborate ideas that revolve around the idea of implementing video and animation into the Intranet, this will make the Intranet more interactive and allow the learning process to be more enjoyable. It will allow the team to experiment with different types of software and enhance the Intranet's appeal to end users.
 
As faculties and extra-curricular activities have been heavily processed and updates this year, next year's apocalipticDESIGN team may provide webpages and subpages that tailor to the need of uploading Daysheets and "The Best and Fairest". As well as creating a section where teachers have their own project registers so that they can update the student's of their various classes on what they will be learning in the future, uploading assignments and documenting important notices.
 
Feedback conducted by this year's apocalipticDESIGN team on the opinions of members of the wider JRAHS community regarding what they would like to see implemented on the Intranet and what they like/dislike particularly about the old and new Intranet was an absolute minimum. This is due to time restraints and other unforeseen challenges.
Making up for this, next year's team could conduct a large-scale feedback forum or questionnaire where they ask all of JRAHS about their opinions and analyse and process this infomration so that they can make more knowledgeable decisions about the Intranet in the future as well as change any existing aspects that are particularly disliked by the JRAHS community.
Such an endeavour would win over the confidence of the JRAHS community and allow them to feel part of the process in enhancing a commuication system of JRAHS.
 
These are my recommendations..
