28/05/2008_ WEDNESDAY

Today, we fixed our tentative work plan for individual project in the class. We all have been working for the whole day. I was about one hour late to the class today since I couldn't wake up in the morning for two reasons. First, I worked till very late yesterday night & also I wasn't feeling well enough. Anyway, everything so far is going very well except the problem of having spiceless food and still i'm liking my learning and staying here. I'm developing my html skills. already have learnt the basic things. tomorrow, I'll go for the advance techniques of html. the web address W3school is helping me a lot in learning html texts. thanks to Philip for telling us about this website.

27/05/2008_ TuesDAY

The development of individual project has been started. At this point, collecting all relevant and necessary materials, that can help producing my particular learning materials, form the internet and storing them in a folder. simultaneously, practicing Flash to secure reasonable command on the program, so that , I can produce required animations. Also, getting to know the html thing. The next most important thing(according to me) is to finalizing the structure of my project. I will start work on that with in two-three days. Wish the very best of luck to me!!!

26/05/2008_ MONDAY

Received suggestions and Remarks on which areas should be developed as final project since the one I wished to develop was quite ambitious considering the available time we have. However, remarks were pretty logical and helpful though I am a bit frustrated realising that I have so little time in hand to learn 3-D animation.

Finally, I agreed to incorporate several smaller files and link them using html instead of creating one very big file of powerpoint. I will start working on the 2nd chapter of the subject and start developing the 2-D animations and if I can manage, I will develop the 3-D animation later.

Learning on May 13

Today, I have read quite a lot of readings provided in the class. The readings were all about theoretical introduction of e-learning and possible medias that can be used in this purpose. As I understood, the redaings primarily focus on basic things that one learner should know about doing filming, editing and finally, compressing them to a suitable bandwith to be posted on internet. Overall, the readings were interesting for me since most of the things I never heard before(though I can't deny the fact that it was a bit too long).

The thing excited me most is the filming part; how one can film considering the various shots(long, medium, short etc.) and angles( Frog's, bird's etc.) I liked the part of how to make good composition.

I would like to learn doing animation. Ofcourse, this is not the ultimate, I still can adjust if it turns too complicated. I teach 'Design with Climate' in my university. So, I would like to create an animation of how the Earth moves around the Sun following the orbit with a tilt of 23.6° with the orbit plane, and thus, how it affects the Global climate and change in seasons. This thing causes me serious trouble to explain in the class.

Besides, I also can try documenting the Gothic and Medieval Architecture of Leuven city as part of the course "The history of Art & Architecture II".

Looking forward for the coming days!!!
