The main point of class was discussing different features of the internet, and the difference between the internet and the web. We discussed email ettiquette and IM and various social networking sites. Learning about the wolfram alfa was new to me. I think this website is very interesting as it gives you the answer directly without having to search through a bunch of different information as you would with Bing Yahoo or Google. I also learned the difference between the web vs the internet. I could incorporate this information into my career because I may need to use the internet for research in my career, or education. Also at my current job being prooficient with using the internet is very important.

Lauren Savine 2-7-12

Image editing is the process of altering images whether they are digital photographs, traditional analog photographs, or illustrations. It enables someone to enhance, manipulate and transform images. The top three programs for image editing are Photoshop, GIMP, and Fireworks. Some disadvantages about image editing are the software is not easy to grasp an understanding of the tools. Some advantages of image editing are that the costs to use these programs are much lower than usual or maybe even free. You can have access these programs anywhere at anytime and it takes less time. You can easily undo changes at anytime as well.

Amy Tyler;Paula Broadwell; Elizabeth Rowley

Media mangement - help to manage all forms of media, such as: music,video and photos. Be alble to search by artist, photo album or create playlists.
Music Programs: Apply iTunes, WinAmp, Windows Media player
Photos Programs: Kodak Shareware, Snapfish,Shutterfly, Flicker.
As with most programs there are good and bad about them. The good are: being able to have access to them at anytime you want and orginize them in importance to you or need to locate. The bad would be someone could hack into it and either change or delete your information. Another thing would be piracy.

Video Editing- Nyree, Ernesia, Brandon

Video Editing
Nyree,Ernesia,Brandon

Software used to edit video files in the computer. A dedicated computer that controls two or more videotape machines. It keeps track of frame numbers in a databnase and switches the recording machine from playbcak to record.The video editor reads SMPTE time codes provided on professional tape fromats,video editing is the process of editing segments of motion videos production footage,special effects and sound recordings in the post-production process.
1)Corel video studio is a real gem of a program. You get professional level editing capabilities for a veru reasonable price.some special effects time lapse,and stop motion animation. You can access a huge variety of ready built templates,transitions,DVD,menus and more.

2)Adobe premiere Elements is considered by many as a lite version of its more commercial cousin Adobe Premiere Pro. Premiere Elements offers the perfect combination of creative control and reliability for home video editing. very nice option for those intending to upgrade to adobe premiere Pro at some point.

3)Pinnacle Studio is a full fledged editing tool which competes directly alongside Corel Video Studio. Whether you want sinmple transitions and titles,or complex options like chroma key,pinnacle studio has it all. One of the better video editoers and also high on my recommendation list.

I think that everything that I am learning from this class is very helpful.
I really do not know what would be benefical for me to start learning because everything that I am learning is in the class already.
I am doing my element k

Survey

1. I feel everything we are doing in class is helpful.
2. Talk slower and show more details.
3. Keep giving us time to absorb all the information that is being giving.

Survey

1. I like the class as it is.
2. Nothing that I can think of should be added.
3. I like the power point presentations and the ability to ask questions as needed.

survey

1. I think it is not helpful to just listen to the lectures, and look at the powerpoint presentations on the board.
2. I think it would be helpful to have a printout of the powerpoint presentations, so that we are not scrambling to take notes, or frantically trying to remember.
3. I think the powerpoints are helpful in summarizing the chapters, and the way you are presenting the information in a language that we understand is helpful. Playing the games is also helpful.

Survey

1. Course assesments are not helpful because if we have class discussions and play games and take the chapter quizzes than it shouldnt be a reason for us to have to take the assesments. I also feel that element k is something that is not helpful to this class and it should not be done. It is jus as the same as doing chapter quizzes its the same things being gone over.

2. chapter quizzes and more time allowed for us to take down the notes as we are going over the chapters in class. This way when we have our midterms or quizzes we are more accurate than guessing at what it could be or tryna make a answer fit.

3. Chapter quizzes,Wiki,Engrade,open book tests,class discussions and games.

survey

1)i feel everything is going good as far as teaching wise. I dont find a reason for the course assements
2) more activities and games like more jeporady and maybe millionare more interactive things instead of just notes
3) wiki, engrade, open book notes for quizzes

I expected to begin to be more comfortable using computers. Thank you for the assistance and guidance. I have gotten some experience with computers through class exercises and assignments.
I was pretty overwelmed because it was all new to me so I could have used more specifics for assignments as we went along.
Powerpoint was the most memorable thing that I learned because I did not know what a computer slide was or any of the parts or buttons to do a powerpoint project.
