elcome to the discussion for WEEK 1.Participating in this discussion counts toward your class participation grade. You must respond in complete sentences for each question, unless directed to do otherwise, demonstrating in your reply that you have read the material in order to receive full credit.

Please read this information extremely carefully:

Please revisit the conference during the week to (1) follow the discussion, (2) respond to a follow-up question(s) posed by a fellow student, (3) post additional comments, or (4) to address a problem in your initial reply as directed by your instructor.

Please respond by answering the following:

  1. In your own words, what is digital media? How is this different then the ordinary internet?
  2. Describe how the internet provides digital media. Find at least two examples of digital media on the internet and provide a URL to these examples in your response to this question.
  3. What is meant by the term “Motion Graphics” and how is it used on the internet? Find at least two examples of motion graphics on the internet and provide a URL to these examples in your response to this question.
  4. How does digital Media work with Society? What do you expect to learn from taking this class?

Your response:

There are FOUR questions that need to be answered. You MUST answer ALL 4 questions. When you respond, please label your responses accordingly.

Your response for each question is required to be AT LEAST 70 WORDS long. If your reply for a question is less than 70 words, you will lose points (yes, I do count). You can use MS Word to count the words in your response to make sure you have met the requirement.

Please do not repeat what another student has already said. If your reply is on the same topic, you are required to add depth to the topic beyond what was initially stated in order to receive full credit. This requires that you not only complete the readings, but have read what your fellow students have posted before you post your response. In other words, your reply must add substantial value to the discussion.

NOTE: Please do not attach a file to the conference. Enter your reply into the text area provided.

The Quality of Your Response

Your reply must prove to me that you have read the material. The following sample responses are not sufficient:

1. I didn’t know how interesting this subject was.
2. I had no idea that there were so many types of features.
3. I am now very knowledgeable about creating information.
4. The help tool is very cool.

When I read your reply, I will ask myself, “Could someone have written this without reading the chapter?” If the answer is yes, then your reply needs some work.

NOTE:Class Participation is worth 20% of your final grade in this course.

Common Mistakes and Sources for Point Deductions

Students in previous semesters lost points for the following:
1. Reply was not made before the deadline, resulting in a grade of zero for the week.
2. Reply was not complete–for example–a student may fail to respond to all readings–missing one or more.
3. Reply was not properly cited. If you include a direct quote or make references to textbooks or other resources, you are required to include the name of the source and the page reference(s) (e.g. p. 26, Discovering Computers).
4. Reply was not properly formatted–Item labels (A, B, C, and D) were not included.
5. Repeating what was already stated in an earlier reply by another student.
6. Reply was created in MS Word and attached to the conference. All replies are required to be typed or cut-and-pasted into the message reply text box.

Late Work

Late work will not be accepted without approval of the instructor and then only for exceptional circumstances. The timeliness of the request is critical. For all unexcused late work,12:01am ET is considered late, and will be graded as zero. This policy will be strictly followed.
