Busy week coming up

The prior week I met with all the students regarding iMovie.I managed to get Ryan from the media center with me to help me out with assisting the students as well.

The upcoming week will have more sessions and i will also be scheduling more for the week after in order for all the students to be ready with their project. There were a couple of misunderstandings this week with the professors and it did cause an issue.

However, what I love about being an STA is that the job is a learning experience for life as well and these experiences go on with you for life. Hope everyones projects are gong well!

Take care


Almost Ready

This week is the week where I will be meeting with the new students.

I’ve familiarized myself which the class information and also really been trying out iMovie this whole time. I’m hoping for a good first session where I can understand the circumstances of the different class even more and also accommodate to their needs over the coming month.

Otherwise all is going well and I will probably meet up with Scott from the media center this week.

Hope everyone is well.


This week was full of planning and getting the project sorted out and learning about what the professors have in mind. The views of the two professors are very specific but at the same time they are slightly unaware as to how they are going to execute it.

I need to have another meeting with the professors prior to our class meeting since it is a joint class that meets are completely different times. Also will pop into the office this week with some questions.

Hope everyone is doing well!


Joint Professor Project!

This years project is interesting for me.

I am working with two professors from completely different departments. It’s for a religion and ecology class.

My main goal this year is in the field of video editing which I have never stepped into in prior years. I’ve always been interested so I have actually taken a lot of time this week to learn it and get my feet wet.

I have become familiar with the MAC side of things so this upcoming week I will start getting familiar with Windows in terms of editing.

I am excited for this project and my official formalities will begin in week 1 of october but before that I will schedule meetings with the professors and also improve my knowledge in video editing.

Hope everyone is doing well and having a good semester.

All Done

All the final touch ups with the project are done we just now have to post it onto a secure place where it can be accessed by students.

It was a great semester and I’m happy that the project and research was a success in the end. Hope everyone has a great summer! Looking forward to another successful semester.


All Done Almost!

Good News,

The use of Microsoft Software in terms of magazine creation was a success. Many students including professor Taylor have created some great magazine projects. It was good to see that the simplest form of software is actually the best form to use.

Dr. Taylor and I had a long meeting yesterday and it looks like everything is good to go. I have a few examples that I will be showing in my poster and after the semester end I may have to work a little bit with Dr. Taylor with merging all the files as a PDF so it is easily accessible for the future. The rest I will fill everybody up on our presentation days!

Take care everyone have a good last few weeks of the semester.

Finally Introduced!

So we have introduced Microsoft Office to the class as their tool to create their specific magazines.

I was just researching essentially magazine possibilities with this case all week. However, Dr Taylor didn’t really have any questions, so after my research I contacted her and saw that she was worried regarding template search through word. I mentioned to her that there weren’t any specific templates available through Word regarding magazine as it was all for a fee online as per my research. Plus they were all third party and not directly offered.

Sticking with Microsoft office though was still a good decisions just for compatibility and merging reasons. I’ll shoot Dr. Taylor another update email and I’m sure I may need to meet with her class soon as well unless they can figure out word, which shouldn’t be too much of an issue to be honest but you never know.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.
