2nd June, coming round

[4th June supplemental] don't appear - greenscreen needed? voice over and talk about web sites, quoting feedback response.

Readers may recall that I did not greet the Covid-induced all digital assessment changes with enthusiasm.

Here they are - Discussion - Announcement

And I said,

Hi David
I was a bit disappointed - I'm still unclear on what is expected. The key things s
eem to be 'choose 10 snaps and make a video describing your journey of learning and exploration'. Yuck.
The original guidance on C&N was once so delightfully clear, after the con[f]usion of EyV,
For assessment you’ll need to submit a cross-section of the work you’ve done on the course:
• Assignments Two to Five, together with the original tutor-annotated versions
• your learning log or blog url
• your tutor report forms.
C&N p.8 That I can handle but I'll find the video a stretch.
Perhaps by November things will have settled down and we can revert to sending prints but I doubt it - this seems to be the way they want to go.
Cheers, Nick

Having done the zine (just about) I'm a lot more posotive about digital. I jotted this morning,

Be more positive
Learning opportunity
To Camera - multi camera? Greenscreen
Screen in shot - second green?
Voiceover backup
Rolling text quotations
Speech:
Moribund
Forced to address new subjects AND genres
And to acquire a practical and theoretical academic understanding of what I am doing and why
Genuine progress in that I have grown in confidence in stuff
And equally importantly my output has shown signs of growing in coherence
Describe c&n
But add thE oca has overreacted and should seek to ensure that physical printing is encouraged and do more to foster interaction between students both online and (when circumstances allow) in corpora.

My post in the EyV chat group today -

Thank you all for your replies. I know that it doesn't matter, that this is the wrong way to look at it and that this is all subjective anyway, but to me, a mark in the 50s is saying 'your snaps are half as good as decent snaps'. That is the absurdity of assigning numerical values to aesthetic judgments. Mind you, I didn't like my work much either until the last two assignments.
Meantime, I'm forging ahead with C&N, which I'm finding even more fun, helped by a more positive tutor.
Cheers, NickB

8th April, C&N Requirements

It was noted in the Preamble that the assessment submission requirements for C&N are, pleasingly, far more precise and explicit than those for Eyv, namely,

For assessment you’ll need to submit a cross-section of the work you’ve done on the
course:
• Assignments Two to Five, together with the original tutor-annotated versions
• your learning log or blog url
• your tutor report forms. C&N p.8
