hello prof studies

This is a test post!

Hello Level 4 Intro to Professional studies

Here you can evidence your research and update your production Diaries on each of your modules.

You can create individual folders or links or label each post to the correct module making it easier to access your work and to grade it.

For example here is a link to your Programme Creative Film & Moving Image Production 

Below is a picture of me Flying a plane! by using the Picture  / Video upload above

This is a link to how to set up a blog from the beginning and might  be of use to you!

Hopefully this will help you get going!

New year at Creative Film & Moving Image Production @CCAD

Welcome to our brand new Level 4 students and our returning Level 5 and  Level 6 students!

We hope you have a fantastic year and do really well with developing your own blog sites to help you research for the modules and evidence all your findings!

Out with the old; Production Folders are being discontinued this year (Loud cheers from Levels 5 & 6), and in with the new! All production work will be submitted online via your Blog, the VLE or "Turnitin"depending on the module requirements.  Even your films will now be submitted digitally so no more burning DVD's and Blue-rays at the last minute to try and hit the deadline! Phew!

We are hoping for a really great year with some changes as above and with a couple of new cool toys which will be unveiled soon, it will hopefully be a great year for the course!

Welcome to 2013 introductory professional studies

Hi All level 4

Welcome to Introductory professional studies.
It is important to start to research and develop your blogs.
This is how you will submit your reports for assessment and the supporting research. There is no folder work so any physical work must be scanned into your blogs.

The information that you upload to your weblog should include referenced primary and secondary research including weblinks where appropriate. You should also evaluate your research choices.

Your weblog can include:

§  Own photographs/scans of samples, products, designs from brochures etc.

§  Own photographs/films taken during research, trade shows, exhibition visits, etc.

§  Own photographs/scans of appropriate newspaper and journal articles

§  Weblinks to the work of appropriate practitioners and organisations

§  Images/content legally downloaded from appropriate weblogs and websites

§  Your own written posts evaluating your research

§  Production log

All downloaded, scanned and photographed material (visual and text based) MUST be legally sourced and referenced on your weblog.

Remember it is in your interest to get good at blogging as you must submit your work this way!
