Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
While I am happy to grant extensions, all extension requests must be applied for via email sent from your student email address and must contain a PDF, RTF, Pages or Word copy of a completed Assignment Extension form, available here: http://www.canberra.edu.au/current-students/forms/forms/other-forms/Assignment-Extension-Form.pdf.
Extensions will not be granted without the form.
As a second year media unit, you will be given guidance and technical examples in class, but you will also be expected to undertake research and learning with limited direction in your own time. You should be spending up to 8.5 hours a week outside of class time undertaking additional study, doing tutorials or working on developing assessment content. The face to face class time alone is not enough to develop the skills required to pass this unit.
Attendance at classes is expected although there is no mark for simple attendance. We would appreciate an email if you need to miss a class. However, classes will cover basic materials, and provide additional knowledge, support and information to help you pass the unit. While all important announcements will also be provided on the unit web site, there will be additional tips and tricks discussed in class that will not necessarily be obtained in any way other than attending classes. Note also that due to the detailed nature of the unit, it is not possible to provide individuals with one-on-one catch-up classes if you have missed a class.
If you think you will be missing classes regularly, please let your lecturer know so we can work out the best way to help you pass.
None (but see 6a, above)
Required IT skills
Students are expected to have substantial IT skills, with experience in digital photography, digital video and/or digital video editing and have a basic understanding of fundamental digital imaging concepts. Students who have not completed pre-requisite units should consult the lecturer in week one to make sure they won't have too much trouble with the unit.
You will need:
- A way to move large digital files (a portable USB hard drive (less than $100, anything 500GB or more))
- A way to capture footage and move it: (Usually an SD card, minimum 32GB, preferably 64GB ($10-$50 depending on capacity and brand))
You do not have to purchase additional materials if you already own these items. You may be able to get away with a 16GB card too, so if you already have a 16GB SD, use that to start with and plan for an upgrade if needed.
